Merlin formed in late 1973 and released a self-titled album on CBS in 1974.
The group also released a handful of singles – Put My Spell On You, Alright, Wild Cat and What a Funny Way To Fall In Love – with two reaching the top twenty.
Merlin supported David Essex on an extensive tour in 1974, with Gary Strange replacing Paul Taylor on bass. The group disbanded not long afterwards.
Jamie Moses eventually became a member of the Brian May Band and toured as second guitarist on the Paul Rodgers and Queen tour.
