In 1969, AMETHYST recruited Mike WAUGH (bass), who could take John Ike WALTON (drums, percussion), one of the members of early Elevators. They signed with an independent record label Sonobeat, that were familiar with John, with their band name changed into COLD SUN. Their one and only album 'Dark Shadows' was recorded during 1970, with a new drummer Hugh PATTON instead of John, but what a pity COLD SUN could not release this album then for the sake of Sonobeat's bankruptcy, and they broke up in 1973 like the sunset.
