COZY POWELL’S HAMMER
Lost Reel Masters/John Peel Session 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Lost Reel Masters; 1984 Studio Recording Session. Very good soundboard. BBC Peel Session; October 15, 1974; broadcast October 29, 1974. Very good radio broadcast.

English drummer Cozy Powell made his name with many major rock bands and artists like The Jeff Beck Group, Rainbow, Robert Plant, Brian May, Whitesnake, Emerson, Lake & Powell, and Black Sabbath. Powell had appeared on at least 66 albums, with contributions on many other recordings. Many rock drummers have cited him as a major influence.

To cash in on his chart success the drummer formed Cozy Powell’s Hammer in April 1974. The lineup included Bernie Marsden (guitar), Clive Chamen (bass), Don Airey (keyboards) and Frank Aiello (Bedlam) on vocals. Clive Chamen was replaced on bass by Neil Murray in the band in early 1975 for the RAK Rocks Britain Tour. “Na Na Na” was a UK No. 10 hit, and another single “Le Souk” was recorded but never released. - wikipedia

  4. It’s Clive Chaman, not Chamen. He was in the Jeff Beck Group with Cozy
