_________________________________________

Motor City hard-rockers Third Power were led by singer/guitarist Drew Abbott, later a longtime staple of Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band. Also featuring bassist Jem Targal and drummer Jim Craig, Third Power formed in 1969, quickly emerging as a favorite on the local club circuit thanks to their bone-rattling sound; an LP, Believe, was recorded for Vanguard in 1970 but after it flopped commercially the trio went their separate ways. In addition to Abbott's involvement with Seger, Targal later recorded a solo record, Lucky Guy.
