Caleb Quaye was too talented of a musician to stay with Elton John's band. Teaming up with Ian Duck was the basis for the chemistry of the band. Their music was unique and very tight. Coomb Gallows is as masterful a ballad as you will find. The album flows and the musical talent of Hookfoot is heard on every cut
If you have never heard of this band the first two albums, Hookfoot and Good Times Coming, are essential Hookfoot. All of the first three albums have a different feel. "Hookfoot" has more acoustic than "Goodtimes". Movies and Coombe Gallows, great playing. Well worth a listen. These guys are great musicians.
Hookfoot was a quintet formed at the end of the '60s as a recording unit by a half-dozen session players associated with Dick James' publishing and later with his DJM Records label. They never made much of an impression on the charts, despite their work being licensed to A&M Records, through which they released four LPs in the U.S.A. Ian Duck (vocals, harmonica), Dave Glover (bass), Roger Pope…and acted a while as Elton Johns backup band
Hookfoot - Living In The City
I should also point out that Caleb had a hand in John Kongo's 1971 breakthrough LP (the one with "He's Gonna Step On You Again"). Truly an underrated musician and songwriter, that man...
My most favorite track from this underrated band. The vocals still keep giving me shivers after all those years.
One of the most beautiful ballads ever!
