    Sure, I remember Klaatu... from the 1951 motion picture, The Day the Earth Stood Still. Michael Rennie played the part of Klaatu... :D

    There was recently a thread about these guys. Google yields fantastic results. Great band of Canadian studio musicians. The Beatles thing was kind of a speculation-gone-wild that the record company didn't do much to quiet since it helped sell records. The first album is classic, the second "Hope" is pretty good, too. That's all I've heard. Nice bass playing.

    Big fan. Obviously. First album had the late Beatles feel. Favorite song off it. Subrosa subway. Second album I think they sent a score to the london philharmonic not saying what it was intended to be used for. It was returned and they added the remainder of the tracks and there's some fantastic lead guitar over the full orchestra/marching band. a little weird. the next albums were more commercial.

    "Back in 1870..."

    I won a copy of that record on AM radio back in the day. Damn I'm OLD.

    "Risking all to ride his dream, a wind machine".
     
  19. Yes. My girlfriend at the time was convinced this was a Beatles reunion. I was equally convinced that it was some clever marketing ploy designed to sell records.

    I've got all of their LP's and a 3 or 4 CD's.

    One of my favourite all time bands.
