Timebox were an English rock combo of the late 1960s that included vocalist Mike Patto and guitarist Ollie Halsall in their first of three joint band ventures. With aspiring chops and exploratory song-craft, the band issued a string of singles but never managed to get an album released during their three-year existence. Nonetheless, they recorded over two album’s worth of material that has since been compiled to much acclaim.

The final lineup of Timebox evolved into Patto and recorded four albums during the early 1970s.
