Axiom - The Axiom Archive 1969-1971
The band's formation in May 1969 brought together a team of experienced and talented musicians, headed by ex-Twilights vocalist Glenn Shorrock and ex-Groop singer/songwriter/keyboard player Brian Cadd.

Heavily influenced by The Band, Axiom delivered textured, mature and engaging country rock, pop and soul. Their success was immediate with the release of three classic Australian Top 10 hit singles - the enduring A Little Ray of Sunshine, Arkansas Grass and My Baby's Gone all remain fresh and appealing in the 21st century.

Here are the beginnings of the harmony-rich country rock sound that Shorrock took with him into the internationally successful Little River Band (LRB) and that Cadd explored further as a member of the early 1990s incarnation of the Flying Burrito Brothers.

This first-rate collection presents all the hits, the complete 1970 Fool's Gold album and the best tracks from their second album If Only (recorded with Shel Talmy in London).
