Amen Corner: Farewell to the Real Magnificent Seven

The Amen Corner was a Welsh R&B-tinged pop band of the 1960s featuring singer Andy Fairweather-Low, organist Blue Weaver, guitarist Neil Jones, bassist Clive Taylor, saxophonists Allen Jones and Mike Smith, and drummer Dennis Bryn. They scored the first of their six British chart hits with "Gin House" in the summer of 1967. "(If Paradise Is) Half as Nice" went to number one in early 1969. By then, Fairweather-Low had become a teenage heartthrob and the band had switched management and record companies, but they split up by the end of the year.
-- William Ruhlmann, All-Music Guide

Amen Corner's version of "The Weight" from Farewell to the Real Magnificent Seven was also included on the compilation Greatest Hits (Amen Corner, 1978, Immediate 2004) and the 2CD British anthology If Paradise Was Half as Nice (Castle 91056, 2000).
