Sweet Thursday


Harvey Burns - Drums
Alun Davies - Guitar, Vocals
Nicky Hopkins - Keyboards
Jon Mark - Guitar, Vocals
Brian Odgers - Bass


Sweet Thursday (Polydor 2310 051) 1969; reissued on CBS (65573) 1973, and on CD - M.I.L.Multimedia Ltd./SONY Special Products, MIL4000/A33504, 1998.

A short-lived minor-league supergroup of sorts, Sweet Thursday featured supersessionman Nicky Hopkins on keyboards and Jon Mark (of Bluesbreakers fame) on vocals and guitar. Their sole, self-titled album (from 1969) was extremely derivative of Bob Dylan's 'Blonde on Blonde' period, with hoarse vocals, piano-organ arrangements, and weary, slightly abstract narratives and love songs.
