Profile
East of Eden was formed in Bristol by Dave Arbus, Ron Caines, Geoff Nicholson, and Geoff Britton. They relocated to London in 1968 and were signed to Decca's progressive rock label Deram, releasing their first album Mercator Projected in 1969. The band went through a number of personnel changes during the 70s, and several of their albums only saw European release. They broke up in 1978, but reformed in 1997 and resumed recording new material. Arbus is also known for having played the violin part on The Who's hit "Baba O'Riley."
