Links To Peel
Taste built up a solid reputation in Britain and the USA in the late 1960s, with their albums and live performances being well received by critics and audiences. Alongside Yes, they appeared as a support act at Cream's farewell concert at the Royal Albert Hall in November 1968, which was compered by Peel. After that they became rock club and open-air festival favourites. Peel appreciated them - they were among the artists from Ireland he praised in a 1970 interview with an Irish magazine - and featured their music on his show. He had a great enthusiasm for Rory Gallagher's guitar playing and continued to follow his solo career after Taste dissolved in 1970.
