Decades before N.W.A and Daryl Gates -- years, even,before the 1965 Watts Riots -- this interracial dancehall band of African Americans, Chicanos, Caucasians, Asians, and a Native American broached the unlikely notion of a truly integrated Southern California. During a longtime residency at Pomona's Rainbow Gardens, they played sweaty rock'n'roll and R&B, documented here with a rare, raucous live LP, plus six period 45s (including kooky party-starter "Olive Oyl").
