    Sweet Smoke were a 1960's and 70's progressive jazz-rock band. They incorporated many different influences, such as jazz, funk and island rhythms. They were originally formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1967, although the band moved to live as a commune in Germany before the decade was out. They have a large underground following to this day.

    Great band I have all their albums, here is a taster:

    The first album - Just A Poke

    I keep looking at your Rory G pic Sox and wondering where I have seen it before. I just realised, it is my Mum's avatar on another forum.

    ^^^Sounds like your parents have great taste in music Sunny, I think Rory was one of the real gentlemen of Rock and I always admired his humble attitude given his amazing talent. My older sister thinks he was a really good looking chap as well.
