A highly-rated band who formed in Adelaide in 1965. Their diverse musical styles ranged from R'n'B to psychedelic rock to heavy rock. They were one of Australia's most popular bands of the sixties and their talent has continued to be recognised to this day.They formed out of the instrumental outfit The Mustangs who started playing raucous R'n'B material penned by their guitarist Mick Bower and took on vocalist Jim Keays at the same time.In early 1967 they moved to Melbourne and put out their eponymous debut album, which contained both sides of their first two singles to name some of its fine original material. It also contained a splattering of cover versions like I Feel Fine, Johnny B. Goode and My Girl.They started out as one of Australia's top R'n'B bands in the sixties and had moved into psych-pop territory towards the end of the decade. They had veered towards progressivism by the start of the seventies and Turn Up Your Radio in 1970 gave them their first and only Top 10 hit. This was pure pop, but on the flip side was Jam It Up, a Led Zeppelin-style heavy metal raver that didn't appear on album, until Raven included it on their 1987 Jam It Up! rarities album.By 1971 The Masters' had established themselves as one of Australia's finest progressive music acts. They were living in England in this era and that clearly helped keep them fully abreast of the latest trends. Their Choice Cuts album and Because I Love You 45 were both recorded at Abbey Road's No. 2 studio. The 45 gave them a No. 12 National hit. It was a strong song, superbly arranged and has stood the test of time well. The album could be termed hard progressive rock. Doug Ford's inventive guitar skills are in evidence on tracks like I'm Your Satisfier, Death Of A King and Song For A Lost Gypsy. Other songs which catch the ear are the haunting Michael, the latin-flavoured Rio De Camero, the pop classic Because I Love You and Our Friend Owsley Stanley III, which at times recalls the style of Jethro Tull (and is about the legendary U.S. underground manufacturer of L.S.D.).The same year The Masters' also released a live album, Nickelodeon. It was recorded just after they arrived back from England for an Australian tour in December 1970. It's notable for being one of the first live albums recorded in Australia, but in truth is disappointing. The better moments include a spirited version of Because I Love You and Doug Ford's Future Of Our Nation which features a series of his lead solo's. This track was issued as a 45 with a non-album cut, the folksy New Day on the flip. Much of the album was self-indulgent with the nineteen-minute version of Spooky Tooth's Evil Woman typical of the malaise. Now, ironically, the album is a sought-after rarity and has even been pirated, but if it's quality music you're seeking beware!
