Blodwyn Pig - Pigthology
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Blodwyn Pig the British rock band formed by Mick Abrahams (vocals, guitars, formerly of Jethro Tull) Jack Lancaster (saxes, flutes, violin and wind controllers) Andy Pyle (bass) and Ron Berg (drums), have released an anthology featuring re-mastered recordings of the band's most beloved and successful songs (Dear Jill, See My Way, Drive Me) and previously unreleased materials. Blodwyn Pig in its first form was a legend in rock history, hitting the top of the LP charts in Britain and elsewhere around the world. The members received new inspiration when Cameron Crow used the recording of Dear Jill in his movie Almost Famous. The original Blodwyn Pig consisted of Mick Abrahams (vocals, guitars), Jack Lancaster (sax, flutes, violin and wind controllers), Andy Pyle (bass) and Ron Berg (drums), and was later joined by Jethro Tull's Clive Bunker on drums. Many bands credit Blodwyn Pig with being a huge influence at the start of their careers. One member of Aerosmith was recently quoted in Rolling Stone as saying "there wouldn't have been an Aerosmith if there hadn't been a Blodwyn Pig" and there are many fan sites across the Internet that still attest to the band's popularity. Several Bands recorded covers of Blodwyn tunes, the most noted being Joey Ramone's version of See My Way. The band played alongside Led Zeppelin, The Who, Procul Harem, BB King, Miles Davis, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd and Joe Cocker at the Isle of Wight rock festivals and the Reading rock festival. The Pig completed two successful American tours playing venues like Fillmores, numerous universities and the LA Forum. Most of the recordings on Blodwyn Pig's, Pigthology are from this period. Pigthology was produced, compiled and mastered by Jack Lancaster and Mick Abrahams.
