    Соединив блюзовые структуры с пиано-джазовым импровизом, это британское трио оставило после себя целых три полноценных альбома, однако запомнилось слушателям лишь благодаря одному хиту "Resurrection Shuffle". В середине 60-х клавишник Тони Эштон (р. 1 марта 1946) и барабанщик Рой Дайк (р. 13 февраля 1945) работали вместе в ливерпульской бит-группе "Remo Four", чей пик успеха пришелся на лонгплей "Smile!". Спустя некоторое время ансамбль распался, но музыканты решили не расставаться и попробовать себя в заданном "Nice" революционном формате, где ритмсекция сопровождала бы не гитару, а орган. Объединив свои силы с басистом и эксучастником "Birds" и "Creation" Кимом Гарднером (р. 27 января 1946), Тони и Рой основали команду под незамысловатым названием "Ashton, Gardner And Dyke".
    Троица дебютировала живьем на разогреве у Пи Пи Арнольда, после чего заключила сделку с "Polydor Records" и выбросила на рынок миньон "Maiden Voyage"/"See The Sun In My Eyes". По большому счету сингл оказался провальным, но "Ashton, Gardner And Dyke" не стушевались и тут же зарядили в продажу одноименный альбом.
    Пропитанный интересом музыкантов к джаз-року, диск содержал ряд оригинальных номеров (в основном принадлежавших перу Тони), а также парочку каверов, "Young Man" Моуза Эллисона и "New York Mining Disaster 1941" "Bee Gees". Кроме того, финальная композиция "As It Was In The First Place" являлась ни чем иным как эштоновской адаптацией адажио Аранхуэсского концерта.
    Релиз сопровождался плотными гастролями (в том числе с "Delaney & Bonnie"), но, несмотря на этот факт, продажи пластинки все же шли вяло. Прорыв случился лишь тогда, когда "Ashton, Gardner And Dyke", перебравшись под крышу "Capitol", выпустили сингл "Resurrection Shuffle".
    Усиленная драйвом медной секции, эта ритм-энд-блюзовая кричалка очень понравилась публике и провела в британских чартах более трех месяцев, достигнув наивысшей позиции под номером три.
    Успех сопутствовал песне и в других странах - например, в Германии ей досталось 22-е место, а в США - 40-е.
    К сожалению, популярность "Resurrection Shuffle" не давала "Ashton, Gardner And Dyke" толком развиваться, поскольку музыканты мыслили себя альбомной группой, а от них требовали нового хита. Так или иначе, в 1971-м вышла вторая полнометражка, сделанная с уклоном в соул и имевшая антивоенный настрой. Хотя в записи ее приняли участие такие звездные гости как Джордж Харрисон, Эрик Клэптон и Стэн Вебб, название "The Worst Of Ashton, Gardner & Dyke" оказалось пророческим, и спрос на пластинку вновь был невелик. Не оправдались надежды и на сингл "Can You Get It", да и альбом "What A Bloody Long Day It's Been", стиль которого находился где-то между двумя первыми полнометражками, чартовая фортуна тоже обошла стороной.
    Последним студийным предприятием группы стало участие вместе с Джоном Лордом в саундтреке к фильму "The Last Rebel", и в начале 1973-го ансамбль распался. Тони впоследствии отмечался в "Medicine Head" и "Family", а также был членом тройки "Paice Ashton Lord", тогда как Рой и Ким присоединились к "Badger". В 2001 году Эштон и Гарднер скончались от рака, и уже после их смерти увидели свет концертные записи 70-х от "Ashton, Gardner And Dyke".

    Band members:
    Tony Ashton - (born Edward Anthony Ashton, 1 March 1946, Blackburn; died 28 May 2001) — keyboardist and vocalist
    Kim Gardner - (born 27 January 1946, Dulwich, London; died 24 October 2001) — bassist
    Roy Dyke - (born 13 February 1945, Liverpool) — drummer
    Mick Liber - (born 1 March 1944, Peebles, Scotland) — lead guitarist.

    Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971. However, this success finally left them known as one-hit wonders.
    Founding band member, Tony Ashton first met the drummer Roy Dyke, when playing with various Blackpool based groups.
    Ashton was invited to join the Liverpool beat group, The Remo Four as organist/vocalist, whilst Roy Dyke became the group's drummer, having joined them in 1963. Their best work came in 1966 when they released their album Smile!. Before their break-up in 1968, they backed George Harrison on his album Wonderwall Music. Harrison later played guitar on their song "I'm Your Spiritual Breadman".
    Ashton and Dyke then joined forces in 1968 with the bass guitar playing Kim Gardner, who had previously played in minor British groups, The Birds and The Creation. The triad simply called themselves Ashton, Gardner and Dyke. Mick Liber formerly of Python Lee Jackson played lead guitar with the group.
    They released their first single "Maiden Voyage"/"See The Sun In My Eyes" on Polydor Records in 1969, but it flopped. However, their next single, "Resurrection Shuffle" on Capitol Records, made them household names. The brass section was Lyle Jenkins and Dave Caswell of the Birmingham band Galliard. The song entered the UK Singles Chart on 16 January 1971, had a chart life of 14 weeks, and peaked at Number 3. The song reached number 40 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was their only hit record, earning them the designation one-hit wonder. The song has since been covered by a number of artists, including Tom Jones and Clarence Clemons.
    Their follow-up single "Can You Get It" lacked the general boisterous appeal of "Resurrection Shuffle", and failed to chart. Nevertheless, Ashton Gardner and Dyke persevered and recorded three albums. The trio also backed Irish singer Jonathan Kelly on his 1970 debut album. And the following year, they appeared, together with other British jazz and rock musicians, on Leigh Stephens' Cast of Thousands (1971).
    Also in the band for a period of time and on the cover of their "best of" cd was ex Bee Gees guitarist Vince Melouney.
    Their last recording together was a collaboration with Jon Lord on the soundtrack for a B movie, The Last Rebel, starring former gridiron star, Joe Namath. Ashton also appeared on Lord's first solo album Gemini Suite in 1972.
    The trio finally split the same year.

    Afterwards
    After the band's demise, Tony Ashton went on to play for Medicine Head, and was briefly in Family before teaming up again with Deep Purple's Jon Lord in Ashton & Lord. Later still he appeared with Lord and Purple's drummer Ian Paice as Paice Ashton Lord. Dyke and then Gardner joined Badger.
    Ashton died of cancer, on 28 May 2001. Gardner also died of cancer on 24 October 2001, in Los Angeles, California, aged 53.

    Captain Beyond - Dawn Explosion (1977)

    Year: April 1977 (CD 1996)
    Label: One Way Records (U.S.), OW 33639
    Style: Rock, Hard Rock
    Country: Los Angeles, California
    Time: 38:01

    Captain Beyond — британско-американская рок-группа, внёсшая заметный вклад в развитие прогрессивного рока. Наиболее известный и самый продаваемый альбом — Captain Beyond.
    В 1971 году группа двое участников известной группы Iron Butterfly — Ли Дорман и Ларри Рино Рейнхардт решили собрать другой проект. Доукомплектовав состав новой группы ударником Бобби Колдуэллом и бывшим фронтменом Deep Purple Родом Эвансом, они приступили к репетициям. Записав одно демо, новоиспечённая группа перешла к созданию дебютного одноимённого альбома.
    Первая пластинка увидела свет в начале 1972 года. Несмотря на то, что большинство участников группы были американцы, первый полнометражник имел типичное британское хард-роковое звучание. Она была благосклонно встречена критиками и поклонниками.
    Перед записью второго альбома из команды ушёл Бобби Колдуэлл, а его место заняли перкуссионист Гилье Гарсия и ударник Марти Родригес, принёсшие в звучание Captain Beyond латиноамериканские мотивы. Также в создании второго альбома Sufficiently Breathless принял участие клавишник Риз Винанс.
    После выхода второго альбома из группы ушёл вокалист Род Эванс, вследствие чего Captain Beyond оказались на грани катастрофы. Тем не менее, продюсерам и менеджерам группу удалось сохранить с новым вокалистом Вилли Даферном. С ним группа в 1977 году записала третий альбом Dawn Explosion и провела более двенадцати выступлений. Вилли Даферн вскоре покинул группу, и его тщетно пытались заполнить Джимми Хендерсоном. Однако эта затея так и не удалась, и Captain Beyond распались до 1999 года. В 1999 году Рейнхардт и Колдуэлл реанимировали проект с помощью вокалиста Джими Интервала, клавишника Дэна Фрая и бас-гитариста Джеффа Эртабэйзи. Команда принялась активно гастролировать и даже хотела выпустить концертный альбом, но этим планам не удалось сбыться.
    Дэн Фрай был вынужден оставить группу по состоянию здоровья. На его место был взят Дэйв Мьюз. Затем из рядов Captain Beyond был уволен Джими Интервал. С вокалистом Кайлом Роадсом и клавишником Стивом Петре группа дала ряд концертов, после чего её деятельность стала потихоньку сходить на нет. В 2000 году группа выпустила EP под названием Night Train Calling, после чего прекратила своё существование.

    Band members:
    Willy Daffern – lead vocals
    Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt – lead guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar
    Lee Dorman – bass, backing vocals, string ensemble synthesizer
    Bobby Caldwell – drums, backing vocals, percussion

    The CAPTAIN BEYOND story
    researched by Hartmut Kreckel with the help of Lee Dorman (interviewed in Elbingerode, Mehrzweckhalle 22.03.97 and Halle, Easy Schorre 24.03.97), Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt and Bobby Caldwell (interviewed in Karlshamn, First Hotel 11. and 13.06. 99) and Reese Wynans: interviewed in Ludwigshafen, Stadthalle 04.86.

    How Captain Beyond came together...
    Lee Dorman remembers: "Rhino and I were touring with Iron Butterfly through Europe in early 71 and we knew that this band would be officially over after the summer US tour of that year, so we decided to do something together... Bobby Caldwell was playing the same places as we did in Europe with Johnny Winter two weeks behind us and Rhino stayed in contact with Bobby, whom he knew from Florida. It also seemed at that time that Johnny Winter was going to take a rest for six months to a year. So we got Bobby interested in doing something. I personally financed the whole thing and we all wanted to go that Jazz Rock direction, we got together in July 71 and played 2 or 3 weeks and then we started to look around for a lead singer and through our old manager we found out that Rod Evans wasn?t working, so we contacted him and he came down to a audition and liked the situation, so we jammed more and we had a recorder in the house... so that?s how the band got together... Bobby and I recorded the first album in two days only, that?s how tight it was! We knew the songs from a to b, Rhino was hitting a few chords and we just recorded it along..."
    Rhino remembers: "Lee and I played with Bobby and it just clicked, we wanted to do something totally different and just the way Bobby plays makes it totally different. Chris Squire from Yes came one morning to me, when we were uploading the bus and said to me "you guys look like Captain Beyond!"
    Bobby Caldwell remembers: "Rhino and Lee came out to see me play with Johnny Winter to check me out"
    The first demo of Captain Beyond...
    Rhino remembers: "We did it at my studio, it had "Can?t Feel Nothing"..."
    Bobby remembers: "... and it had "Icarus"... it was like 20min. of material... I guess "Ranging River of Fear" was on it too..."
    Lee Dorman remembers: "I believe it was the whole first album being demoed"

    The name "Captain Beyond":
    Lee Dorman: "... when we were on that european tour of Iron Butterfly in 71, we were travelling with Yes, with whom we did the tour and there was a strike by Lufthansa, so we had to chart a airplane by a company named "General Air". A game of words started and suddenly, we were on a bus late one night, someone said "Captain Beyond", we thought it sounded good and kept it..."
    The crystal ball in the hands of the Captain on their album cover contains the earthsign symbols of fire and water.
    First and second album songwriting credits:
    Lee Dorman: "It was a financial, publishing decision to credit all the songs to Bobby Caldwell and Rod Evans, as Rhino and myself were under contract and in litigation with Iron Butterfly, so we did it that way... All four of us wrote the whole first album together, the music and the lyrics. On the second album Bobby was no longer in the band, Rhino still was in liquidation with Iron Butterfly, Rod was in litigation with Deep Purple and I was free of contract, so it says "All songs by Lee Dorman". But when the money came in for the first two albums we were all equal! When Bobby quit, Larry and I thought about going into a different direction and tried out a few things, keyboards, percussion players sax, maybe a second guitar and once we found the players we wrote along that feel. The lyrics on "Sufficiently Breathless" were written all by Rod, Rhino and myself and 90% of the music too, but we gave Guille and Marty a point as well, although they were sidemen they contributed to the arrangements".
    Gigs:
    Lee Dorman: "The president of Capricorn, our label, was also our manager and suddenly all these Southern Rock bands became quite popular, and we were quite different, so we kind of got pushed backwards and there was never enough being done for us. We only played like 60-70 gigs in the that two year period with Rod".
    From the first album they played live AFAIK every song, except "Ranging River Of Fear" and "Thousand Days Of Yesterdays (Time Since Come And Gone)". It?s also known that the song "Dawn Explosion" was performed live during the time with Rod, the same goes for "Pandora?s Box (The Land Of...)", which was done in Arlington 73, and according to Lee was played a few times only.
    Lee Dorman: "From "Sufficiently Breathless" we performed live Distant Sun, Drifting in Space, Starglow Energy, Everything?s A Circle and Bright Blue Tango. We became involved in a problem with the record company in late 73, everyone was tired of sitting around and doing nothing, rehearsing and nothing happening, so we decided to call it a day..."
    Reese Wynans remembers: "Captain Beyond was a great band to play with, but from the management side it was terribly organized... I was very poor at that time, living in somebody?s else garage, so I needed to work and had to quit. I played on all the songs on "Sufficiently Breathless", except the title track. I only played one show with them..."

    About Rod Evans:
    Lee Dorman: "... Rod walked out of the studio midway through the recording of "Sufficiently Breathless", I really don?t know the reasons why, his wife was making pressure or something and he felt disgusted with the management situation, but he never really talked about it. He finished the album and that was it... not too long ago we found out that Polydor Japan was releasing our records and after a while we got the royalties cheques... so we had to put Rod?s share on hold, as nobody could find him. I contacted him via his manager and forwarded my number to him, saying please call back... never heared of him. He seems to live in the San Francisco area now and I haven?t seen him since he left the band, same goes for the other band members, noone has talked to Rod ever since he left... We had some rough times together, he was a great guy, I liked him."

    Reformation:
    Lee Dorman: "Warner and Capricorn had a deal and contacted us in 1976 to do another album. In the interim I was working as a engineer/producer for demo bands for Warner Bros. We started to audition singers and were quite happy with Willy Daffern. We have a outtake of "Icarus" and a studio version of the song "Dawn Explosion" that wasn?t used for that album. We did like 15 to 20 gigs with that line-up."
    Rhino: "... I first met Willy in a liquor store..."
    Bobby Caldwell: "... after Willy left, we tried out Jimmy Henderson for a time in 1978..."
    Rhino: "... and then Jimmy went with me in my band named "Rhino", we were managed by the manager of Styx and toured for six months in 1979..."

    In Retrospective...:
    Lee Dorman: "Looking back, we lacked of proper management. I think if we?d gone out doing 150 gigs a year it would have done much better. Our management did nothing for us, it was like "we?ll get back to you" and they never did a thing, so what could you do about it... They should have bought us into a tour to open up for someone who would really draw some people, but it never happened... There were several attenpts of reforming Captain Beyond over the years, but it never got beyond talking about it, and the only chance to do it seemed, if I was going to do anything... I?m now with Iron Butterfly and surely I can do one thing at the time only, but THERE?LL ALWAYS BE A PLACE IN MY HEART FOR CAPTAIN BEYOND...?CAUSE THIS WAS REALLY A LABOUR OF LOVE..."

    Hardin and York - Tomorrow Today (1969)

    Label: RPM Records (UK), RPM 128
    Style: Rock
    Country: London, England (19.02 1949 – 22.07 2015)

    Эдди Хардин (19 февраля 1949 - 22 июля 2015), английский рок-пианист и автор песен. Родившийся Эдвард Хардинг , он был наиболее известен своими связями с Spencer Davis Group , Axis Point и Hardin & York. Хардин вместе с барабанщиком Питом Йорком покинули Spencer Davis Group 26 октября 1968 года из-за "разногласий по поводу музыкальной политики".
    Хардин и Йорк выступили дуэтом на и с годами, и Хардин записал свой сольный дебют "Home Is Where You Find It" в 1972 году. Оба мужчины снова присоединились к Spencer Davis Group в 1973 году, но после двух альбомов группа снова распалась. Хардин продолжал как сольный исполнитель, время от времени воссоединяясь с Йорком, большая часть его работ с 1974 года была продюсирована Роджером Гловером , который недавно покинул Deep Purple . В том же году Хардин участвовал в сольном проекте Гловера The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast , исполняя ведущую роль в треке Maximus Mouse, а также играя и соавтором других песен.
    Он умер от сердечного приступа 22 июля 2015 года в возрасте 66 лет.
    Его самая известная работа - это, вероятно, его вокальная партия на тему с телеканала Thames Television серия детских журналов Magpie, записанная тогдашним составом Spencer Davis Group под псевдонимом The Murgatroyd Band.
    (Википедия site:wikichi.ru)

    When keyboardist Eddie Hardin (born 19th February 1949, South London) was recommended in 1967 by family friend and Manfred Mann vocalist Paul Jones for the vacant position in the then internationally popular Spencer Davis Group he could scarcely have believed that his introduction to the world of professional music would have led to a career that is now well over a quarter of a century old. On joining the band in April 1967, he teamed up with Davis, guitarist Phil Sawyer and drummer Pete York (born 15th August 1942, Middlesborough) they took off on an American tour followed by a cameo appereance in the film "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush". They also scored two UK hits, "Time Seller" (No.30) and "Mr. Second Class" (No.35), before, in the summer of '68, both Hardin and York left to begin work as a duo - 'The smallest big band in the world' as they were initially dubbed by the music press.
    Securing a record deal with Bell Records, the duo released an album (SBLL 125) and single (BLL 1064) both called "Tomorrow Today" in mid '69 and found themselves in considerable demand on the European live circuit, gigging with the likes of Deep Purple, The Nice and Keef Hartley. One concert in a youth hostel in Hamburg-Blankenese was recorded without the pair's knowledge and released as a bootleg disc which the duo only found out about when fans used to bring it to gigs for them to sign. Eddie Hardin eventually tracked down a copy of this excellent quality recording and set about "bootlegging the bootleggers"! The 1970 LP "Smallest Big Band In The World" (SBLL 136) was followed by 1971's "For The World" (Decca SKL 5095) before the pair went their separate ways by releasing solo LP's - Hardin with "Home Is Where You Find It" (TXS 106) and York with "Pete York Percussion Band" (TXS 109), both on Decca Records.
