They formed in Los
and got their break in 1971 from the Philharmonic conductor, Zubin
Mehta. They released their self-titled
debut album in 1975, which was engineered by Alan Parsons and nominated for
a Grammy award for Best Engineered Recording. It also produced their first charting singles "Nice,
Nice, Very Nice" and "Holdin' Onto Yesterday". In 1977 they appeared in and arranged The Beatles'
"Magical Mystery Tour" for the film All
This and WWII. The
following year they started to see real success when their "How Much I Feel"
reached No. 3 in the charts and this was equalled again by "The Biggest
Part of Me" in 1980. They
participated in the recording of the first album by The Alan Parsons
Project. Their album One Eighty was released in 1980 and
received three Grammy nominations.
In 1982 they sang the song "Poor Rich Boy" on the Arthur soundtrack. They split up
after poor sales of their fifth album in 1982 but reformed as a touring
band around 1989 and released an anthology and a further album in the mid
1990s. They are currently still
touring with the members also concentrating on solo careers.
