Graham John Clifton Bond (Born: October 28, 1937, Romford, Essex, England--
Died: May 8, 1974, Finsbury Park Station, London, England) was a influential blues keyboardist. He was found dead of an apparent suicide beneath a tube train at the Finsbury Park Station in 1974.
Bond was an innovator, described as "an important, under-appreciated figure of early British R&B", along with Cyril Davies and Alexis Korner. Jack Bruce, John McLaughlin and Ginger Baker first achieved prominence in his group, the Graham Bond Organisation.
After the break-up of the Organisation, Bond continued to exhibit mental disorders, with manic episodes and periods of intense depression, exacerbated by heavy drug use. Moving to America, he recorded two albums and performed session work for Harvey Mandel and Dr. John among others, but he returned to England in 1969.(wiki)
His second US album "Mighty Grahame Bond" released on Pulsar Records (AR- 10606).I chose "Water, Water","Freaky Beak" and "Baroque". Enjoy!!!
