The Rare Breed (2)

When members of The Playboys and The Big Beats combined, Gainesville, Florida’s The Rare Breed was formed. Best known for their singles on the Cool As A Moose label ('In The Night'/I Need You' and 'I Talked To The Sun'/'Don't Blow Your Cool'), The Rare Breed also backed other musicians for recordings for D&B Records and Volt. Comprised of University of Florida students, The Rare Breed included rhythm guitarist and co-songwriter Jim García, now a successful lawyer. The band consisted of Bill Carter, lead guitar; Jim García, rhythm guitar; Ron Gause, organ and vocals; Randy McDaniel, bass; Paul McArthur, drums; and Randy Ratliff, lead singer. Also, from time to time, the personnel changed and they had Bryan Grigsby on sax and flute, Frank Birdsong on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, and one or two other singers.
