June 1970 to December 1971
Mel Galley (gtr/vcl); Dave Holland (drm); Glenn Hughes (bss/vcl).
Toured US extensively from December 1970 through 1971, supporting e.g. the Moody Blues. Their first gig, in Houston TX, was a huge success with two sold-out concerts and ZZ Top (!) opening. Touring in the southern parts of the States turned out to be the most successful. They went back to UK in December 1971.
