    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    This was rather an interesting project. Don Grady (whose real name was Don Agrati) had previously been the popular star of U.S. TV show 'My Three Sons' as well as working with a folk-rock outfit called The Palace Guard. He teamed up with a young L.A. producer/songwriter called Gary Zekley, who'd previously finished working with Jan and Dean, on an album, working under the name of Yellow Balloon. The album consisted of various out-takes from the Jan and Dean sessions, new work with session musicians and some work by the new band Grady hastily assembled for live appearances when one of the outtakes from the Jan and Dean sessions, the bright'n'breezy pop tune Yellow Balloon, climbed to No. 25 in the National Charts. Had it been released on a major label it would probably have been a bigger hit.
    For the live band, Frosty Green and Don Braught were duly recruited from Oregon's Rising Sons and Salem's Breakaways respectively, whilst Alex Valdez and Paul Canella had previously been in Tucson's Five Of Us. These disparate musicians were brought together by Grady, who'd noted the names of accomplished players whilst travelling the country doing telethons and on tour, with his Windupwatchband. (He'd previously toured on the back of his solo Canterbury 45 The Children Of St. Monica, which had been a modest hit in the Pacific Northwest. Incidentally his Windupwatchband featured Gil Rogers and Darryl Dragon (later with Bob Smith and Captain and Tennille), however these guys were not in Yellow Balloon.)
    After the Yellow Balloon disolved, Green, Braught, Valdez and Canella continued to play together as The Popcorn Explosion. Don Grady continued to record well into the 1970s under his real name Don Agrati. ~
