FRANKIE MILLER - Double Trouble [UK rock 1978]

Double Trouble is the fifth album by Frankie Miller. The album took shape in April 1978 at the Record Plant in New York, with Miller receiving backing from drummer BJ Wilson from Procol Harum, guitarist Ray Russell, two-man horn section Chris Mercer and Martin Drover, and keyboardist and vocalist Paul Carrack, who co-wrote five of the songs with Miller. Steven Tyler from Aerosmith also makes a guest appearance as backing vocalist.

ROOM 13 - Peaceful War [UK punk psychedelic 1980-82] Bevis Frond

After the demise of the Von Trap family, Room 13 rose like a phoenix from the ashes in the early 1980s. Sadly, it was a bit of a short-lived phoenix, as they only existed for a brief period before Nick's motorbike accident put an end to the band. Musically you could call them post-punk garage psychedelia if you really wanted an ill-fitting pigeonhole to squeeze them into - better to listen and decide for yourself. They released one incredibly rare 12" Single - Need Some Dub / Murder Mystery in 1982. This compilation comprises all of the studio cuts they recorded during that brief period and includes an LBC interview and their appearance on Jellybone Jury. One live recording exists which you can also find on this Bevis Frond site. The phoenix was to rise again in 1986 as the Bevis Frond, feeling altogether healthier.
