Hervorragende Harmonie Vocals treffen auf grandiose Instrumentierungen .
This band started in the mid 60s and had their first big hit in 1966 with:
ALONG COMES MARY followed by CHERISH; WINDY; NEVER MY LOVE or 1968 with
SIX MAN BAND (goes more into hard psychedelic influenced Rock).
The band was able to great harmonie vocals like a choir with a grandiose handling of their instruments
and fine arrangements, like you will hear on the Live Album.
They played the first great (for me the better one) Rock-Festival in Monterey.
They released 8 LPs + some compilations till split around 1972 or 1973.
Style: Harmonie-Beat-Pop with psychdelic influence
