Progressive Hard Rock act unfortunately now noted more as a conduit for various known musicians than any lasting impressions left by their albums. MAY BLITZ was created in 1969 by former BAKERLOO men bassist Terry Poole and drummer Keith Baker after their guitarist Clem Clempson had upped and left for COLOSSEUM, Joining them with the fresh band was front man vocalist / guitarist Jamie Black. Before MAY BLITZ got into the studio Poole departed to join VINEGAR JOE and Baker quit ending up in URIAH HEEP for their 'Salisbury' record.

Undeterred, Black pulled in bassist Reid Hudson and ex-JEFF BECK band, SOUNDS INCORPORATED and live session drummer for THE HOLLIES, Tony Newman. The band were soon snapped up by Vertigo Records.

MAY BLITZ soon splintered with Newman teaming up with THREE MAN ARMY before creating BOXER. The drummer would also appear on DAVID COVERDALE's 'Northwinds' album in 1978.

MAY BLITZ were formed by vocalist/guitarist Jamie Black who recruited Tony Newman on drums, (ex: Sounds Incorporated and Jeff Beck Group), and Reid Hudson (bass, vocals) in 1969. The original lineup featured bassist Terry Poole and drummer Keith Baker, from Bakerloo, but both left before recording anything for the band. Baker had a better offer from Uriah Heep, and went to record "Salisbury" with the band.
I was a little wary of this group's inclusion , because I remembered them as a power guitar trio , formed on the heels of The Jimi Hendrix Experience , Cream and Taste (Rory Gallagher's first band) , and thought of the others more hard-rocking groups such as Budgie , T2 and Clear Blue Sky all of whom where producing proto-metal music (some on the same label as MB's Vertigo) with the odd prog elements, but such is not the case as I rented out from the library , the 2 on 1 CD from BGOCD153.
