Juicy Lucy - 1969-1972 (4 albums)

Juicy Lucy is a British blues rock band officially formed on Oct. 5th, 1969 after the demise of a band called The Misunderstood. The band name was inspired by a character in The Virgin Soldiers (1966) by Lesley Thomas. The band immediately notched a top 20 hit with their cover of "Who Do You Love" by Bo Diddley. Their self titled debut feel just short of hitting the top 40 on the U.K. albums chart. The cover featured a burlesque dancer named Zelda Plum, naked except for the covering of fruit. The band had multiple lineup changes before recording their 1970 album "Lie Back and Enjoy It." (#53 on the U.K. albums chart) 1970 also saw them appear at the NME poll winners concert.
1971 saw the release of "Get a Whiff a This", and in Aug of that year, Juicy Lucy appeared at the Whitley Festival. The constant turnover took it's toll on the band both creatively and commercially with another significant lineup change befor the recording of 1972's "Pieces", which was recorded with a make-shift lineup. The band broke up shortly after. They reformed and produced new material from 1995 until 2010,
