In 1972 Bobby Harrison had just disbanded his blues/rock outfit Freedom and recorded his first solo LP. Among the many first-class musicians who featured on that album was Micky Moody, then lead guitarist of Juicy Lucy. That collaboration inspired the formation of a completely new group to play American inspired funk and R & B: Snafu.

Bobby Harrison was of course the drummer with Procol Harum and appeared on the classic single,
"A Whiter Shade Of Pale". Micky Moody's first band included Paul Rodgers on bass and vocals who later became the lead singer of the acclaimed Free. In turn he was replaced by Bruce Thomas, later of Quiver and Elvis Costello's Attractions.

In Snafu, Harrison and Moody were joined by Terry Popple, drums (later with Van Morrison), Colin Gibson, bass (formerly with Ginger Baker's Airforce) and keyboard/fiddle player Pete Solley. The band's musical influences ranged from the Allman Brothers to Little Feat. They had some success as a live act, and the two albums presented here on CD for the first time date from 1974.

Moody went on to join David Coverdale's Whitesnake whilst Bobby Harrison recorded an album in Iceland with jazz-funk outfit Mezzoforte "Solid Silver" (also available on Angel Air).
