Ex-Roxy Music Andy Mackay and Phil Manzanera teamed up with vocalist James Wraith for some typical mid-80s music, ever so slightly in the "New Romatic" order. Latter albums were released under the "Manzanera-Mackay" moniker.
Eyes Of Blue were a Welsh band that had their start in the early 60s. By 1966, the lineup included vocalists Gary Pickford-Hopkins and Wyndham Rees, keyboardist Phil Ryan, guitarist Ray “Taff” Williams, bassist Ritchie Francis and drummer John Weathers. They recorded two albums of psychedelic music for the Mercury label, both produced by Lou Reizner. A third albums was released as The Big Sleep. Members would go on to join Man, Pete Brown & Piblokto!, Gentle Giant, Wild Turkey and The Neutrons.
Musically somewhat akin to Traffic and trademarked by the growl of Roger Chapman, Family was one of the most original and rewarding bands of the era. They avoided almost every cliche of the genre while remaining one of rock's most powerful live acts.
