The Endless Note

Minstrels, Poets & Vagabonds – Northwind

Now this is one of the many gems I have discovered thanks to the above book.

“Northwind” developed in the early 70’s from the ashes of another Glasgow band “Power Of Music”.

Their well developed twin Les Paul guitar sound echoed the muse of “Wishbone Ash” in the new emerging melodic rock genre.

The band line-up for their only album “Sister, Brother Lover”  was – Brian Young (electric & acoustic guitars & vocals);  Colin Scott (drums); Hugh ‘Shug’ Barr (electric guitar); Tom ‘Tam’ Brannan (Bass and vocals); Colin Somerville (keyboards).

The album featured their “signature” song which you can enjoy below.
