Rod Edwards

Before the formation of Jade, Rod Edwards was a member of two bands:

  • The Picadilly Line (with Roger Hand and backed by luminaries such as Danny Thompson & Herbie Flowers) and
  • Edwards Hand (again with Roger Hand)
                of Edwards Hand's first album

The sole The Picadilly Line album & two of the three Edwards Hand albums were re-issued on CD and vinyl LP by Lightning Tree Records.

Lightning Tree Records is now defunct. However copies of these albums can still be tracked down, including at Forced Exposure (a US store) as linked above.

Edwards Hand recorded a third album in 1971 titled Rainshine which didn't see the light of day until 1973. At the time of writing it has not been re-released since. Lightning Tree Records did have a re-release in the pipeline before they ceased business.
