• Students at a teacher training college in the King’s Road, Chelsea, Five’s Company found themselves at the very epicentre of the mid-Sixties pop revolution. Signing to Pye, they released a trio of 1966 singles that defined the concept of Swinging London as succinctly as any of the band’s higher-profile competitors.

• Having completed their studies, Five’s Company broke up the following year, with bassist Bob Brunning joining the nascent Fleetwood Mac – although the nexus of the band did briefly reconvene in 1968 to cut one of the earliest concept albums, The Ballad Of Fred The Pixie.

• That LP and those three singles are now joined by a clutch of fascinating demo recordings and the group’s cancelled fourth single, the psych-pop nugget ‘Friends And Mirrors’, as Grapefruit Records proudly presents the first-ever Five’s Company anthology.

• The release features a 16 page booklet with some priceless period photos and memorabilia as well as the band’s story, with reminiscences from chief member Edward Broadbridge as well as the late Bob Brunning.
