More information: Previously unreleased vintage studio tracks spanning 1976 to 1978.

Beginning in the early 1970ís and continuing until 1980, this relatively unknown band from Houston managed to record a collection of songs that are the musical expression of the word Chameleon. Twisting and turning, changing colors, leaping out of your speakers at times with unbridled ferocity - this band will hold your attention throughout the 70+ minutes contained on this disc.

Musicians Spencer Clark (guitars, vocals), Mike Huey (drums), Craig Gysler (keys, vocals), and Rick Huey (bass) rounded out the mid 70ís line-up with a key change being made later in 1978 with the addition of Marty Naul (Oz Knozz) on drums.

The bandís sound and style reflect the artists they listened to and loved yet at the same time they managed to craft their own unique tones. One may hear reflections of Peter Gabriel era Genesis, Canterbury heavyweights Camel, King Crimson, Dixie Dregs, and Eloy in their music.
