Sand (10)

Profile:
Country rock band from the early 1970s. The band was formed in Portland, Oregon; eight sides were cut in Los Angeles in October of 1972; for Andy Williams' Barnaby Records. The album, released in 1973 and distributed by MGM, featured two single-sided LPs in a gatefold cover with a sticker that read "One Record Album on Two Discs For Continuous Flowing SAND", with the intention that both discs could be put on a turntable with a changer and played straight through without having to flip the disc.

Although it was an excellent effort, the combination of the wrong label (Barnaby was not a "rock" label, being otherwise occupied with Everly Brothers reissues and Ray Stevens LPs, and didn't know how to promote them) and the wrong distributor (MGM was in the midst of its infamous artist purge and in preliminary sale talks with PolyGram) cause the record to sink.

After a follow-up album in 1973, the band went their separate ways, but Rich Gooch and Jack Charles went on to some fame after joining Quarterflash. Sand was inducted into the Oregon Music Call of Fame in 2014.
