Jonathan Kelly's Outside - ...Waiting On You 1974

In 1973, he formed Jonathan Kelly’s Outside, with Snowy White - on guitar and Chas Jenkel - on bass among the members. Snowy White went on to play with Pink Floyd, Peter Green, Thin Lizzy, and Chas Jenkel and was central to the wonderful British funk of Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Led by Ledingham, this line-up made one album together, which was 1974’s ...Waiting On You.

"Waiting On You" was something Jonathan had always wanted, at heart he was always a bit of a Rock and roller.  This album cover was designed by Tim Staffell. However, this album wasn't as warmly received and Jonathan was hurt by some of the criticism of it, the music press wanted him pigeonholed as a folk singer. A single was also released to coincide with this album called 'Outside' backed with 'Waiting on You'. Jonathan was particularly fond of Outside because it encompassed the musicians and styles which he enjoyed and which had influenced him and the type of music they played covered rock through to jazz and not forgetting the soul influences!
