Clive John - You Always Know Where You Stand With A Buzzard - 1975 (Reissue 2004)
Keyboardist, guitarist, and vocalist Clive John was most known for his stint in the Welsh progressive rock group Man from the late '60s through the mid-'70s (before that, he had been in the group from which Man evolved, the Bystanders). In late 1975 he released a little-known solo album, You Always Know Where You Stand with a Buzzard. Like much of what Man had done, it was eclectic, with dips into singer/songwriter rock, blues-rock, riffs with echoes of West Coast psychedelic bands, and Frank Zappa-like fusion and absurdism. Clive John died in Swansea, Wales on August 24, 2011 after a lengthy struggle with emphysema.
