Still wrote: > Any info on this group? Hey there Margaret... I dont know if this will be of help to you, they were formed in 1969 for a new faces TV show in New Zaland (they reached the finals). In 1970 they had 3 hits "Gretel", "Pretty Girl" and "Auberey". Pretty Girl being the best selling single in NZ in 1970. In 1971 they disbanded. I have somewhere in my collection back in NZ a copy of there Album, but can't recall the title of it, it may have been selftitled. Hope this helps you out.

Great memories around those tunes. McClean wrote them, yeah? For MY money, Orange Skies is the cream of the Love pop crop. Thanks Richard. Isn't it amazing how much we know? And I'm NOT being sarcastic or ironic either!

So much so in fact that his name > often comes up as the father of that sound. At least in some > circles. Vinnie built his own pedals to get his unique underwater sound, BTW. Thats why it was unique. Nobody else had the pedals. Al Kooper -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- SPECTROPOP - Spectacular! Retro! Pop! End
