Skin Alley were a British progressive rock band founded by Thomas Crimble and Alvin Pope. The band, comprising Thomas Crimble, Alvin Pope, Krzysztof Henryk Juszkiewicz and Bob James, were signed to CBS Records for their eponymous 1969 debut and its 1970 follow-up, To Pagham & Beyond.

Only for completionists (0%). Apparently the sessions of To Pagham and Beyond suffered from some unrest: bassist Crimble left in the course of recording (headed for Hawkwind) and was replaced by ex-Atomic Rooster bassist-singer Nick Graham (an important reinforcement for SA), the production is not quite up to the debut (same person for both albums) and with an orange nonsense gatefold artwork, finally. CBS dropped them soon after its release. Although the SA sound remains relatively intact, the songwriting seems a bit weaker (but nothing really noticeable, but the tracks tend to drag on a bit) and all tracks are 7 minutes.

Skin Alley boldly announced their arrival with their eponymous debut in March 1970. Three months after it hit the shops, the group was back in the studio working on its follow-up. It was at this point that bandmember Thomas Crimble departed for Hawkwind, with ex-Atomic Rooster bassist/flutist Nick Graham taking his place. This shake-up in the lineup led to an equally momentous shift in sound, as the new-look band now moved toward a more improvisational style

Skin Alley's 1970 second album To Pagham and Beyond is a continuation of the z-fusion brilliance of their first release Skin Alley. Long and complex intricate compositions with fluid musicianship, fueled by unique vocals, were their modus operandi. Skin Alley were pioneers of the jazz-rock-fusion sound and would disband in 1973 after a too short career and four albums. Even though their journey was brief, the music they made is certainly a viable measurement of importance
