Captain Beyond's self-titled debut LP 1972
Captain Beyond  1972 (USA)
Most self-conscious "supergroups" in rock history were better on paper than record, and most failed to live up to their hype.  While the latter is probably true of Captain Beyond (they never got famous),  the former is not.  This group actually made interesting and original music, a combination of early 70's proto-metal stylings with complex song structures and fantasy lyrics from the prog world.  On this particular record the supergroup consists of Deep Purple's original singer (Rod Evans, who sang Purple's early hit "Hush"), two guys from Iron Butterfly (Lee Dorman & Larry Reinhardt ) and Johnny Winter's ex-drummer (Bobby Caldwell.)  They did continue on until 1977 and made two more albums with ever-shifting lineups, niether of which is as good as their debut (which originally had a groovy 3D cover!)
