A late sixties Hollywood hippie type rock band. Barcelona and Keith later played in Edge, who issued an album in 1970. The American Revolution album, produced by Harley Hatcher, is quite heavily orchestrated with pleasant vocal harmonies, particularly on In The Late Afternoon, Rainbow In The Rain and Love Has Got Me Down. Some of the songs have a psychedelic taint, but it's predominantly rather good psych-pop.
Producer Harley Hatcher, was an exploitation film composer, member of Mike Curb's gang and as an army buddy of Elvis he sang in ad-hoc groups with the King.

Where can I get that song on your player"Everybody's Gotta Live"????

Incredible song. I cant seem to find it. I need that song on my Ipod and if possible on vinyl!

Also do you know any other songs like that with a guitar and just people singing in the same vein with the sort of chants in the background?

Cheers man. I love yor Blog. Best regards
