Chicken Shack is a British blues band founded 1965 in Stourbridge, UK by Stan Webb (guitar, vocals), Andy Silvester (bass), and Alan Morley (drums). They were later joined by Christine Perfect (vocals, piano) in 1967. Chicken Shack was one of the early wave of British blues revival bands, their lineup has undergone many changes, Stan Webb being the only constant member. Perfect was with the band between 1968-69 and featured on their first two albums before leaving to join her future husband John McVie in Fleetwood Mac. Webb and Silvester also played in Savoy Brown for a few years when 'Shack was on a break. Webb also formed the short-lived band Broken Glass, which released one album. Chicken Shack's sound is defined by Stan Webb's excellent blues guitar work which is well displayed on their excellent debut album 40 Blue Fingers Freshly Packed and ready to Serve. Their fifth album, 1972's superb Imagination Lady was more focussed on heavy blues-rock than their other work. Outstanding albums include 40 Blue Fingers..., OK Ken, 100 Ton Chicken, Accept, Imagination Lady and the 2005 compilation The Complete Blue Horizon Sessions.
