Leicester, England-based Black Widow formed in 1969 from the ashes of blue-eyed soul band Pesky Gee! Jim Gannon(vocals,guitar, vibraphone), KipTrevor (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Zoot Taylor (keyboards), Clive Jones (woodwinds), BobBond (bass),and Clive Box (drums) played dark, allegedlysatanically inspired rock along the lines of Black Sabbath, and gainedplenty ofattention and controversy for their theatrical live sets. Black Widowmade the U.K. Top 40 with their 1970 debutalbum,Sacrifice. Despite, or perhaps because of, the focus on their occult trappings, they moved awayfrom their dark rootswith their1971 self-titled album and continued this trend with the following year's Black Widow III. By this time, however, lackofcriticaland label support, plus many lineup changes, caused the group to falter. Late in 1972, after losing their deal with CBSRecords,Black Widowrecorded Return to the Sabbat, a self-produced set that did not see the light of day until 1999, when itwasreleased by Blueprint Records. A tributealbum, Come to the Sabbat, appeared later that year as well. « hide
