Melbourne singer Terry Dean formed country rock band Bluestone in 1972 after enjoying a successful solo career. The band’s initial line-up included Terry Dean on lead vocals and guitar, John Creech (a founding member of The Mixtures) on drums and vocals, Ted Fry on bass and vocals, and Mike Burke on pedal steel. Bluestone was heavily influenced by west coast American country rock including artists like The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Eagles, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris and other influential songwriters, as well as performing and recording much of its own material.
The band’s first album, self-titled Bluestone, was released on the Bootleg Records label in 1974, and helped to cement the band as a major force in Australian country music. The single from the album, Wind and Rain, was a hit across Australia.
