Biography

Kelly Green (vocals/harmonica), Gary Ray Thompson (guitar), Thomas Beaudry (bass), Larry Zelanka (keyboards) and Rick Stevens (drums) emerged from the hard rock circuit in Detroit, USA. In 1970 they scored a surprise transatlantic hit with their powerhouse interpretation of ‘The House Of The Rising Sun’, based on the Animals’ highly original arrangement, but to which they added a searing, guitar-strewn approach, reminiscent of contemporaries the MC5 and Stooges. The single reached number 7 in the US and number 4 in the UK, but the group’s subsequent chart entries, ‘Sing A Song For Freedom’ and ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ (both 1971), were confined to the lower regions of the US chart. It confirmed a suspicion that the song, rather than the group, was responsible for that first flush of success. By the time of their final album in 1975 for Fantasy Records only Stevens remained from the original line-up.
