Round the Back by Cafe Jacques. Formed in 1973 by guitarist Chris Thomson and keyboard player Peter Veitch, they signed to CBS Records in 1976
With drummer Mike Ogletree they recorded this debut album the following year with producer Rupert Hine. The sessions featured guest appearances by Phil Collins and Caravan alumni Geoffrey Richardson and John G. Perry.
Fusing influences as diverse as Caravan, Steely Dan and Genesis, the band’s debut album was an impressive work. Never issued on CD in the UK before now, this release coincides with the first Cafe Jacques concerts in many years at the end of August.
