Dave Edmunds – guitar/vocals, John Williams – bass, Bob “Kongos” Jones – drums

Love Sculpture was formed out of the Cardiff band The Human Beans in 1968. This band released a single Morning Dew, the Tim Rose song. The band’s first single was River to Another Day which was soon followed by a very fast version of Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance. The latter entered the top ten in December 1968. Two albums were released on Polydor, Blues Helping and Forms and Feelings. These showcased the band’s blues style, of which the hit single was not representative. The first album was a collection of high energy blues covers in the main. The blues standards were given a different sound by Edmunds' electric guitar work.

Forms and Feelings was issued in 1970. This was more experimental with classical music themes. Edmunds admitted that the LP lacked a clear direction.

There were a number of further singles including the superb, psychedelic In the Land of the Few. However, the band split shortly after a US tour. Dave Edmunds has had a highly successful career both as a solo artist and as part of Rockpile. His hits have included I Hear You Knocking and Girls Talk. A "Best of" The Many Sides of Dave Edmunds was issued in 2008 including a version of Sabre Dance.
