Product Information

Splinter were a two-man vocal group from South Shields, England, consisting of Bill Elliott (William Elliott) and Bobby Purvis (Robert J Purvis), who formed in the early 1970s.

They were connected with ex-Beatle George Harrison, (and Elliot had sung lead vocals on the Elastic Oz Band single, written by John Lennon).

The band had groups of instrumentalists to back them on each album.

Splinter was the first act signed to Harrison's Dark Horse Records label, when it was partnered with A&M Records.

The band's sound has often been likened to that of The Beatles (particularly Harrison and John Lennon) and Badfinger.

The duo's biggest success came with their debut album, the critically admired The Place I Love (1974), which contained the hit single "Costafine Town".

This was their fourth album.
