Released in October 1969, the 2nd album from this underrated Welsh band is generally regarded as the more ‘progressive’ of the two records released under the Eyes Of Blue name. This time the band focused on more complex structures (including some Eastern influences) and instrumental interplay (check out the 9 minutes opener ‘Merry Go Round’), with plenty of psychedelic guitar, some classical guitar, organ, mellotron and great vocals as well. lt’s worth noting that the sleeve notes were supplied by Quincy Jones. In 1970 the band changed the name for Big Sleep and released one, very rare, Spanish-only single ‘Largo’ and then the whole album called ‘Bluebell Wood’ (1971). This CD has been carefully remastered and expanded with two rare single tracks!

================================================================================

Following on from their earlier collaboration with Buzzy Linhart, the Eyes Of Blue also worked with Quincy Jones when they contributed to the unreleased Toy Grabbers film score. Later they also appeared in the film Connecting Rooms as well as playing on the soundtrack, but the film wasn't given a general release in the UK. Wyndham Rees was eased out of the Eyes Of Blue before the spring of 1969, having reputedly contributed little to the band. He was present during most of the Chappell Studios early recording sessions for the group's second album In Fields Of Ardath but was gone by the time they gravitated to more modern eight-track facilities. It was released in November and is generally regarded as the more successful and 'progressive' of the two albums released under the Eyes Of Blue name. Quincy Jones supplied the sleevenotes for their second album. The record has also been described as having "Pop, R&B, jazz, classical, psychedelic, and Eastern influences." A fair sprinkling one must admit. In a further collaboration, John Weathers, who had recommended the band to Lou Reizner, and his co-Eyes Of Blue members Gary Pickford-Hopkins and Phil Ryan also helped out when Welsh based band Ancient Grease entered the studio to record the 1970 album Women And Children First. In an attempt by Mercury's UK A&R chief Lou Reizner to revitalise the Eyes Of Blue, the group released their final album under the name Big Sleep but the group never performed live under the new name, and folded within months of its release. The album, Bluebell Wood (later reissued on one of Cherry Red Records’ sub-labels) is accomplished enough but the quirky nature of the production does sometimes fail to integrate the music into a seamless whole. The Eyes Of Blue played their farewell gig at the Gwyn Hall in Neath during the summer of 1970, bowing out in style and on home ground. The fortunes of Phil Ryan, John Weathers, Taff Williams and Gary Pickford-Hopkins can be followed through incarnations of Man and other acts from the Man family tree. Phil joined Pete Brown in Piblokto! before moving on to Man, and John joined Gentle Giant, spent time with Phil in the Neutrons, and then became Man's longest serving drummer after the band reformed in 1983.
