Opal was a psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, CA. The group was formed by David Roback (ex-Rain Parade) and Kendra Smith (ex-The Dream Syndicate) in 1982 under the name Clay Allison. Changing their name to Opal, they released their sole LP, "Happy Nightmare Baby" in late 1987. Smith left the band the following year mid-tour. Roback went on to form Mazzy Star while Smith later re-emerged as a solo artist.
