This band originated in San Diego and evolved out of Gerry and The Gerritones and The Palace Pages in mid-1966. Their line-up went through a number of changes with Pinney and Willis leaving in the summer 1966, being replaced briefly by Penrod and Morris. After their first album Danny Weiss left in August 1967, to form Nirvana, which never got off the ground. He then auditioned for Electra's Project Supergroup. Penrod and DeLoach left the following month, with Penrod re-joining Weiss in Project Supergroup and DeLoach recording a solo 45. 'Project Supergroup' became Rhinoceros in February 1968.
Their second and most successful album, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, was recorded by Braunn, Dorman, Bushey (ex-Voxxmen) and Ingle. This remained near the top of the U.S. album charts for over two years and is generally thought to be the first album to go platinum. The title track, a seventeen minute composition of Doug Ingle's, comprised the whole of one side. Although the lyrics of the remaining tracks like Flowers and Beads and Termination sound dated today, they also accounted for the album's enormous popularity in the flower power era. Ingle's organ work (his father had been a church organist which accounted for the classical influence in his writing), is always to the fore. This gave the group a similar sound to The Doors and his classical influence is particularly evident in My Mirage.
The album's phenomenal success proved too much for the group to live up to. In late 1969 Braunn was replaced by twin guitarists Mike Pinera (ex-Blues Image) and Larry Reinhardt (a former associate of Duane Allman). This new line-up recorded the live album and Metamorphosis but was unable to arrest the group's decline. They eventually dissolved on a farewell tour in 1971. Like so many other West Coast groups, they were to reform to cut two unsuccessful albums in 1975.
Mike Pinera went on to Ramatam, New Cactus Band and Thee Image.
