As part of this talented group of people, they contributed to numerous albums and sessions in addition to those released as Goldenrod. Some of these included Tommy Roe, Darius and backing the Association on their first two albums. Much of this session work was done on a "conveyor belt" system; with all the instrumental tracks being cut at Gary Paxton's studio, and vocals for the more well known acts cut at Columbia. All three had earlier played with Ballroom with Boettcher and together with Mallory, they formed the basis of the original line-up of Millennium.
Scheff contributed Dandelion Wine to the Millennium repertoire, but all three left when it looked like Millennium would turn into a 'proper' band rather than a studio project. Goldenrod are also thought to have backed Lee Mallory live. The Goldenrod album contains four elongated tracks consisting of extended and improvised jamming with mystical titles, such as Karmic Dream Sequences and Descent Of The Cyclopeans. The former was written by Curt Boettcher and Lee Mallory, and was later also recorded by Millennium.
Apparently the group first met while they were recruited to back The Fifth Dimension and they all went on to become top L.A. session men; Scheff also went on to back Elvis Presley and Benay appeared in Fun Zone in the seventies. 2) Goldenrod is an uncompromising power electronics noise collaborative project between Macronympha and Streicher. They have 3 releases through the Zero Cabal label.
