Biography

This Los Angeles-based group, initially called the Smiths, comprised of Gayle McCormick (1949; vocals), Rick Cliburn (guitar), Alan Parker (guitar), Larry Moss (keyboards), Jerry Carter (bass) and Robert Evans (drums). Their brand of folksy pop is best heard on A Group Called Smith, which included their 1969 US Top 5 hit, a cover version of the Shirelles hit, ‘Baby It’s You’, produced pseudonymously by Del Shannon. The sextet also contributed their version of ‘The Weight’ to the million-selling soundtrack of Easy Rider when rights to the Band’s original version, as featured in the film, were withheld from the attendant album. By 1970 McCormick, Moss and Carter had been joined by Jade Hass (bass) and Ed Beyer (keyboards), but the group’s short-lived fame was fading and they broke up soon afterwards, leaving McCormick to pursue a solo career.
