Signed to MGM Records, their first LP, recorded at Phil Ramone''s Studio (A&R) New York received rave reviews. After extensive auditions, looking for the right " voice ", James Christian (House Of Lords) is added to the lineup, along with keyboard prodigy Jeff Batter and guitar virtuoso Scott Zito .
Equipped with full light show and special effects, the art rock band toured the Northeast US, to packed houses until 1976........... Because of commercial and non-commercial musical differences, that year, the group disbands.
