In 1965, England's premier music magazine, Melody Maker issues a fan vote for an All-Star band from the notable British Invasion groups of the time.
The top votes are for:
Eric Clapton on Guitar from the Yardbirds,
Stevie Winwood on keyboards from the Spencer Davis Group,
Jack Bruce on Bass from Manfred Mann
Ginger Baker on drums from the Graham Bond Org.
Little did anyone imagine that within a year it would almost come to pass. Elektra Records would tap Clapton and the rest of this line-up to form an All-Star sampler album including members froms many different bands. This group was led by Clapton (whose name was being spray painted as GOD on guitar at the time around London) and called the Power House! They would only record 3 songs for the showcase album and return to their own bands. Only Ginger Baker was unable to make the recording. Shortly thereafter however, everything would change.
