the Edison Electric Band's sole album combined some blues-rock, R&B, and psychedelia, though it didn't chart or get much attention upon its release on the Atlantic subsidiary Cotillion in 1970. Formed in 1966 in Philadelphia, the group played on the local circuit and did some gigging in San Francisco in the summer of 1968 before landing a deal. They split up shortly after their LP, Bless You, Dr. Woodward, came out, though several of the members continued to be involved with the music business. Keyboardist Mark "Froggy" Jordan played on Van Morrison's Tupelo Honey; guitarist T.J. Tindall toured with the Chambers Brothers and became a session man for top Philly producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff; and bassist Dan Friedberg played with Bonnie Raitt.
