Scottish band Beggar's Opera started out as an organ based proto-prog unit, sounding similar to ELP or The Nice, thanks to Alan Park's Hammond histrionics. Their first 3 albums are all highly recommended, but something happened and the direction of the band changed radically, for the worse unfortunately, in terms of progressive music anyway.

Beggars Opera were a progressive rock band from Glasgow, Scotland, and were formed in Glasgow in 1969 by guitarist Ricky Gardiner. Ricky Gardiner (guitarist) went on to play for David Bowie on the Low album and with Iggy Pop on the Lust for Life album as well as the famed Idiot tour of 1976. He co-wrote The Passenger with Iggy Pop. Alan Park (organist) worked with Sir Cliff Richard for many years as musical director.

The Stones forsook psychedelic experimentation to return to their blues roots on this celebrated album, which was immediately acclaimed as one of their landmark achievements. A strong acoustic Delta blues flavor colors much of the material, particularly "Salt of the Earth" and "No Expectations," which features some beautiful slide guitar work. Basic rock & roll was not forgotten, however: "Street Fighting Man," a reflection of the political turbulence of 1968, was one of their most innovative singles, and "Sympathy for the Devil," with its fire-dancing guitar licks, leering Jagger vocals, African rhythms, and explicitly satanic lyrics, was an image-defining epic.

When they made "Beggars Can't Be Choosers", the band had already begun to move away from the overtly progressive style. The album seemed to signal the end of the band, but five years later came "Lifeline", a 1980 album that did not include Ricky or Pete. The project was the result of a revival conceived by former Beggars' guitarist Gordon Sellar. He was keen to bring the brand into the new decade with a high tech glossy sound, while retaining the Beggars' rock roots. The line-up also included Linnie Paterson back on vocals with Alan Park (keyboards), Colin Pattenden (bass) and John Hollywood (drums).

After more than two decades of contributing with his voice and songwriting on studio albums, it's finally time for Apollo to deliver his first solo album. And it's been a long road leading to "Waterdevils". Waterdevils is a weather phenomenon. It's a small, weak whirlwind over water that's pretty rare. You never know where you'll see it or if you'll see it again. In a way it's a tribute to all of those who have contributed to this album. They showed up, unexpectedly and they might show up again, or maybe not, you just never know. Like waterdevils.

Yet another good melodic bluesy hard rock, pop-metal, and arena rock along the lines of Def Leppard and Bon Jovi that got lost and overlooked in the hair band shuffle of the early 90's. Beggars & Thieves is certainly not a metal release, but for those rare moments of mellowness, a good listen from start to finish. Bassist Phil Soussan also played with Ozzy Osbourne and Dio. Drummer Bobby Borg was also played on Warrant's "Belly to Belly Vol. 1." Louie Merlino was in a band with Dana Strum (Slaughter) in the mid 80's.
