This Trenton, New Jersey band was lead by brothers Lon and Derrek Van Eaton, previously with local garage rockers The Tree, who are best known for the subsequent music they made for The Beatles' Apple label. Along with drummer Tim Thay, the addition of guitarist Steve Burgh and singer Bruce Foster made Elisium in 1968, which later morphed into Jacobs Creek. Basing themselves in New York, they played at Andy Warhol's factory, opened for The Doors, and soon signed to Columbia, who placed them with producer Al Lawrence (perhaps best known for his work with Santana) The quintet's resulting album was issued in August 1969, complete with a lyric insert, and touched on pop, rock, country, blues, psychedelia and folk, with their instruments fleshed out with brass, sax, sitar and more. Unfortunately the label didn't promote it, and (despite encouraging radio play) it didn't sell.

The band continued to play around New Jersey, finally splitting up in March 1971. Remaining with manager Robin Garb, and maintaining the band's former base at 106 North Hermitage Avenue, Lon and Derrek put together some home-recorded demos as a duo. Garb shopped them around, and Apple's label manager, Tony King, liked what he heard. He duly recommended the duo to George Harrison, who arranged for them to be signed to Apple in September 1971, and went on to produce their album, Brother, released a year later. The sole album made by Jacobs Creek is a fine collection of acid-tinged rural rock, which first appeared in 1969. With arrangements encompassing electric guitars, horns and sitar, it's an eclectic treat for fans of vintage psychedelia.
