I think that one of the important attributes of Trapeze, beyond just out and out musical technique was their arranging skills...for three young guys it was brilliant, and Holland's parts were necessarily important in that way. With three members, everyone had to be exceptionally ...full and in the pocket to make it work. The dynamics in their arranging is so important to me.

Think about the drum part in Your Love Is Alright or Jury...(and so many more). Without those dynamics...drums were constantly laying out and kicking in ...or just high hat and then kicking in the bottom to start or re-start the groove. I don't know if they all arranged or if there was one boss, but it is very good and very important. Simplicity but perfect timing. Rock and roll.
