An Anglo-Dutch project featuring ex-FOCUS man Jan Akkerman, the band would attract an enviable array of experienced Rock talent over a series of albums. FORCEFIELD also comprised ex-FANCY vocalist / guitarist Ray Fenwick. Ray had also been a member of the IAN GILLAN band in 1976 and also cut the bizarrely titled ‘Keep America Beautiful Get A Haircut’ solo album in 1971 (Decca SKL 5090). The FORCEFIELD debut comprised a clutch of re-worked well known Rock standards such as DEEP PURPLE’s ‘Smoke On The Water’, LED ZEPPELIN’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’, THE KINKS ‘Set Me Free’ and ‘You Really Got Me’ and CREAM’s ‘White Room’ and ‘Sunshine Of Your Love’. The featured musicians included the WHITESNAKE rhythm section of drummer COZY POWELL and bassist Neil Murray, SERGEANT vocalist PETE PRESCOTT and bass player Mo Foster.
