Keats

Keats were a short-lived British rock band. Released in 1984, the eponymous self-titled album might be considered as an Alan Parsons Project off-shoot. It was produced by Parsons and includes the core band members that feature on most of the Project albums: Ian Bairnson, Stuart Elliott and David Paton. Moreover, Colin Blunstone provides vocals and Peter Bardens (ex-Camel) supplies keyboards including on four of his own compositions. Richard Cottle also provided additional keyboard parts, as well as saxophone and synthesizers. The idea was to create a band – Keats – that could exist separately from the Alan Parsons Project and give more recognition to the key members.  Eric Woolfson formed the Project with Alan Parsons whom he originally managed and was also key in bringing about Keats including the band name (after his favourite restaurant). Keats, the self-titled, Alan Parsons-produced album features hits "Turn Your Heart Around", "Night Full Of Voices" and "Hollywood Heart".
