Thijs Van Leer and his group Focus are mainly remembered in the U.S. for their crazy raver “Hocus Pocus” which is a pity as they continue to be a great mostly instrumental progressive band.  Their first Dutch single (1971) was this quasi-Tull sounding flute instrumental written by then guitarist Jan Akkerman and was a #10 hit in Holland.  It was finally released in the U.S. on the Focus 3 double album in late 1972 (on CD it has been tacked on to their first LP In And Out Of Focus).  Van Leer has also released some excellent solo albums including his 1972 classical flute album Introspection. 21. Ian McDonald has a list as long as your arm of records he has played on (including the T Rex hit “Bang A Gong [Get It On]”) plus he was a founder of Foreigner.  For fans of progressive rock, he will be forever a founding member of King Crimson playing mellotron, keys and winds on the classic In The Court Of The Crimson King (1969) before leaving.  After the nasty album intro song of “21st Century Schizoid Man”, the gentle “I Talk To The Wind” is a jarring contrast.  McDonald duets with himself on flute to start to song.  McDonald also plays some nice flute on the song “Atmospheres” by the band Fireballet on their debut album Night On Bald Mountain.  The one song per group rule nixes some excellent work on flute by Mel Collins on later albums. The late Chris Wood might have a case in challenging Ray Thomas for the title of second most remembered rock flautist.  Also contributing to other artists’ recordings such as “1983… (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)” by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Traffic wind-man Wood was a versatile musician.  Wood’s flute playing on the traditional “John Barleycorn” might be his best work, but this early Dave Mason sung single from 1967 remains a psychedelic fave of your R&R Dentist.  Wood struggled with drugs and alcohol addiction finally passing away at age 39 in 1983. Yet another discovery back in the day of my pal DC, this is another album that was slow to reveal its charms back in 1971 to a long-haired kid who wanted to rock.  On their debut album the band was Jon Field on flutes and percussion with Tony Duhig on guitars and Glyn Havard on bass, vocals.  Apparently Duhig and Field met in the ’60s while driving forklifts at a factory in the U.K. and bonded over a love of African music and jazz. In 1978 the late AOR singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg teamed up for an album with jazz flautist Tim Weisberg – Twin Sons Of Different Mothers.   The album was a #8 charter in the U.S. with the single taken from the LP “The Power Of Love” making it to #24.  This cover of the old Hollies composition (from 1966) received a fair amount of FM radio play back in the day as well.  Trivia buffs may find it interesting that Weisberg’s first recording was playing flute on “French Song” for the 1969 LP The Monkees Present. Spill the Wine is a San Francisco Bay Area based band that is committed to spreading joy through booty-shaking music. school music programs were some of my fave activities as a kid and I can only assume that during this virus this activity has been curtailed. My favorite blog of all time! ( Log Out /  ), but on their second album Getting To This (1970) on the second track “Variations On Nainos” he made like Ian Anderson and played flute.  Mick Abrahams never captured the magic of those two albums again with his self-named band or with the reformed Pig. Eric Burdon and War originally released Spill the Wine written by Papa Dee Allen, Harold Brown, B.B. The group formed in Newcastle-on-Tyne, a port city and coal-mining hub in northeast England. Jamaican Zen Ska?  Donovan Leitch’s lyrics could be a bit obtuse, but the catchy island arrangement with a flute riff played by Harold McNair is simple and direct.  This was a #11 single in 1967 in the U.S. (#8 U.K.).  McNair who passed at age 39 in 1971 (lung cancer) was from Kingston, Jamaica and was mostly known for his jazz recordings.  As a session player he was found on many Donovan records plus Nick Drake’s Bryter Layter, etc. Dedicated to the memory of Raymond David Daniel ℗&© 2001 Surfdog, Inc.

Ann Wilson of Heart has played flute on a number of their songs including “Crazy On You” and “Love Alive”, but on this song she has a bit more of a role (though still not major).  While it would have been more illustrative of Ann’s flute prowess to use the song “Sing Child” (where she makes like Ian Anderson on the break), I frankly don’t like the track.  This song is from the debut album by Heart Dreamboat Annie (1976 in the U.S.).
