phonogram news, May 1977:


Clover's recently completed residency at London's Nashville Rooms has been one of the most successful musical events in the capital in recent months. The list of rock stars who have joined the band on stage include Graham Parker - and of course The Rumour - the whole of Southside Johnny's Asbury Jukes and Southside Johnny himself; Thin Lizzy; Nick Lowe; Dave Edmunds the list is endless. The point is that Clover are one of the most respected musical bands on the concert circuit at the moment.

Since their arrival in this country from their native San Francisco nine months ago, Clover have completed tours with Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a load of gigs by themselves - and gained a lot of friends in the process. Their reputation preceded them via their session work in the States, notably that of steel guitarist John McFee, with albums including Steve Miller's "Fly Like An Eagle", and work with The Grateful Dead, Boz Scaggs and many more.

Now their first British album "Unavailable is out in this country, and from it comes the group's latest single, "Love, Love", which gives just a taste of what draws musicians - who should, after all know - to want to play with one of the best American exports in years.
