Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s.
They released their first single "Maiden Voyage"/"See The Sun In My Eyes" on Polydor Records in 1969, but it flopped. However, their next single, "Resurrection Shuffle" on Capitol Records, made them household names. The brass section was Lyle Jenkins and Dave Caswell of the Birmingham band Galliard.
Their follow-up single "Can You Get It" lacked the general boisterous appeal of "Resurrection Shuffle", and failed to chart. Nevertheless, Ashton Gardner and Dyke persevered and recorded four albums
The trio finally split 1972.
