The original Delivery - Phil Miller (guitar), Steve Miller (keyboards/vocals), Lol Coxhill (b. Lowen Coxhill, 19 September 1932, Portsmouth, Hampshire, England; saxophone), Jack Monk (bass) and Pip Pyle (b. 4 April 1950, Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, England, d. 28 August 2006, Paris, France; drums) - was formed in 1968 during the nascent British blues boom. Monk was subsequently replaced by Roy Babbington and in 1969 the unit was augmented by singer Carol Grimes. Delivery’s lone album, Fools Meeting, was released in 1970, but the members’ divergent interests pulled the band apart. Grimes began an erratic solo career, Steve Miller joined Caravan and Roy Babbington departed to Soft Machine via Ovary Lodge, while Coxhill embarked on an idiosyncratic path. Phil Miller meanwhile became an integral part of Matching Mole, Hatfield And The North and National Health, where he continued something of Delivery’s early innovations.
