Formed in 1968 by former 'Graham Bond Organization' colleagues Jon Hiseman (drums) and Dick Heckstall-Smith (saxes) band also featured old friends Dave Greenslade (keys) and Tony Reeves (bass). They added guitarist James Litherland and scored record deal with Fontana ('Those about to die'), later Bronze/Vertigo ('Valentyne Suite', Daughter of Time', 'Colosseum Live').
