曲作りとボーカルでは Natural Gas の主力ではなかった Peter Wood と Jerry Shirley が新たに作ったグループ。おいおい、大丈夫かよ と思ったが、大丈夫。 今回もボーカルでは全然主力ではないが、10曲中6曲の作者に Peter Wood の名がある。

Les Nichol は Les Nicol とか Les Nicholl と表記されていることもあって、はっきりしなかったんだけど、1960年代末期に Methuselah のメンバーでした。 Methuselah は解散後に 2つのグループになり、ひとつは John Gladwin と Terry Wincott の Amazing Blondel 、もうひとつが Les Nichol と Craig Austin の Distant Jim 。 その後は Coast Road Drive とか Leo Sayer に曲を書いたりしているようです。
 
 
Norwegian singer-songwriter の Even Johansen が Magnet という名前で2005年に発表した Hold On という同名曲もあって紛らわしい。

英米で今話題を集めているグループを総点検    東郷かおる子 
 
ところで最近イギリスの人がアメリカで受け、アメリカの人がイギリスで受けるなんて現象があるが、さしづめナチュラル・ガスなんてのは前者の例ですな。元ハンブル・パイ、元バッドフィンガーなんて人達がゾローッと集まって出来上がったバンドで、デビュー・アルバムを、フェリックス・パッパラルディーがプロデュースしている。形としては丁度バッド・カンパニーのデビュー当時風で、さほど派手なこともやらず、地道に堅実に音を創り上げている所は好感が持てる。このハード・ロック全盛時代に、ウロチョロとハード・ロックをやっていない所が又いいヨ。アメリカではセールス面で、あと一歩伸び悩んでいるらしいが、体制をととのえて次作で勝負に出るにちがいない。

Mark Clarke Interview 1997
 
You did the NATURAL GAS album with Jerry Shirley and a few others. That was a bit of lighter than previous stuff.
Mark Clarke: Yes, it was totally left field, really. It was something I wanted to do. 
 
Who instigated the whole project, was it yours ?
Mark Clarke: Yes, it was my project originally.
Joey Molland (the guy from Badfinger ) and I had been friends for years. I was planning to do a solo album, and Joey suggested that he was, so we said "let's get together!", and we did.

Joey Molland
 
 "We were just talking and having a laugh and I asked him, 'What are you doing?' He said, 'I’m going up to Jerry Shirley’s this weekend. I’m going to stay there and we’ll probably have a jam – why don’t you come with us.' I didn’t really know Jerry, but I thought it would be cool. So Mark calls him and Jerry says. 'Come on up.' We go on up to Jerry Shirley’s house. "  "We had a lot of fun, just playing rock ‘n’ roll songs and blues songs. The next morning Mark, Jerry and myself decided to put a band together.  "

 "We also got a keyboardist, a guy named Dave Kafinetti from the band Rare Bird. He went on to be the keyboard player in 'Spinal Tap'. What a knockout guy!" Kafinetti was replaced before the recording of the album by Peter Wood who co-wrote 'Year of the Cat' with Al Stewart." 
 
 "Felix was really nice, a real sociable guy and talented fellow. As far as a producer went, we really wanted Mal Evans to do it. But the label wanted Felix Papalardi, the bass player from Mountain who’d done Cream and all that – the label wanted him to do it. Apparently Felix wanted to do the project as well, so that was that. I think Mal was pretty disappointed actually."

In 1975, you formed Natural Gas. Why this band lasted for so short time? 

We came to America and went on tour and unfortunately for all of us, we got involved in some drugs and I think that was the main factor. That’s the reason we got out of control and the band broke up about a year and a half later. It had nothing to do with the personalities in the band, I really put that all down to the drugs. 

 
Dan Matovina:   Without You
After the tour (during July, August, and September, 1976), Shirley, Clarke, and Wood found apartments in New York City. They were quite content to situate there, but Joey wanted to stay in Los Angeles. The band broke up.
 
Billboard   (Jan. 8, 1977)
Joey Molland has departed Natural Gas to re-form Badfinger.  Les Nichol, who played with Leo Sayer, replaces him.
