New York, USA-based contemporaries of the Vagrants and the Myddle Class, this superior R&B outfit comprised Danny Kortchmar aka Danny Kootch (b.
6 April 1946, Larchmont, New York, USA; guitar), John McDuffy (organ/vocals), Dickie Frank (bass) and Joel ‘Bishop’ O’Brien (b. 1943, USA, d. 9 September 2004, Los Angeles, California, USA; drums). The quartet completed three excellent singles during its brief existence, which included a notable version of ‘Lost In The Shuffle’, also recorded by Blues Project. McDuffy replaced Al Kooper in the latter act following the King Bees’ disintegration in autumn 1966. Kortchmar and O’Brien resurfaced in the Flying Machine, a band which also featured James Taylor, and were eventually reunited in Jo Mama in the wake of the guitarist’s spells in the Fugs, Clear Light and City.
