    Fanny?. Yeah I vaguely remember hearing of them when they got some airplay on BBC radio in the UK back in 1971 or 1972.

    Apparently Fanny were possibly the first all women rock band and reading about the band about 20 years ago it was stated by one of the women band members that they didn't know that in the UK the name 'Fanny' was a slang word for a female's private parts?.

    I never bothered about Supertramp as I just assumed they were some 'prog rock outfit' during the 1970s but a couple of weeks ago I listened to a 'best of' cd mainly for a nostalgic listen to Dreamer & The Logical Song which sounded ok all these years later.

    Sassafras were a band like Stray..who i saw many times for a £1 or so...but brilliant..think there was a connection with Love Sculpture ( Sabre Dance.) somewhere along the line.. however a cracking band that seem too overlooked.

    Sassafras - Ohio.

    Though branded as part of the Canterbury scene...these originated from up north..Bolton.
    The heartmelting Barbara Gaskin sang and Dave Mattocks who played drums on all album recordings...was never a proper member...the first album on Polydor is a must...

    Spirogyra - The Furthest Point.
    ( Bells Boots and Shambles -'73.)
