Musical interlude: Back street love (Curved Air)

Its a Saturday morning and time for a musical interlude. My choice for this week is from Curved Air a band formed in 1970 which attracted a cult following both here and the United States. This particular song was their most successful single and reached number 4 in the charts in 1971.

As a schoolboy I recall being rather taken by the lead singer Sonja Kristina, who despite her Swedish name was actually English coming from Brentwood in Essex. Sonja's first major appearance had been in the musical Hair when it opened in 1968 and featured on the album performed by the original cast.

The band are still going and you can find out more about them at their official website: here
