In 1972, Mike and Lal Waterson (from the Watersons) joined forces to record an album for the Trailer label, Bright Phoebus, which is most unlike anything else they ever did, as it features self-penned songs (of which there are none on any of their other albums) as well as an all-star backing band. Joining Mike and Lal are folk-fusion luminaries such as Ashley Hutchings, Maddy Prior and Tim Hart of Steeleye Span, Richard Thompson, and Dave Mattacks of Fairport Convention, as well as traditionalist Martin Carthy. The album has remained out of print since 1985.

After dramatic developments in december 1965, when Holland’s most popular instrumental band The Jumping Jewels lost their name in a court case against their old manager Herman Batelaan, bandmembers decided to start with a new name in which the two “J” ‘s had to return. Instantly a new single was released, two covers from the first LP of The Kinks: Baldheaded woman coupled to Mystifying. As leadguitarist Hans van Eijck didn’t like beatmusic – he’d rather stick to the old instrumentals – he left The Jay-Jays two months later after the band did a very important TV-show promoting their first single. He was replaced by Leo Bennink, who used to play with The Black Albinos and Rene & his Alligators. The record was an instant success though, spurting into the Top Ten and getting the band a lot of work.
