Johansen produced much of the material, but a composition by Hans Jørgen Høines secured the group's breakthrough. At the end of 1969 The group entered the competition Talent 69, arranged by NRK (The Norwegian Broadcasting), and with the song «Mother Nature» they won. The single was published before Christmas 1969, and the album Dedicated To The Bird We Love was recorded the next year with Mikkel Aas as producer. In the studio the trio was strengthend by Helge Grøslie (organ), Sture Janson (bass) and Espen Rud (drums).
Before the album was released, the members had split and gone in different directions: Johansen left the music-business and became a teacher. Walle started ►Hole In The Wall, and later joined groups like ►Saft, ►Flying Norwegians and the American group Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Singh was not granted residence permit in Norway, and left for Denmark where he became a lawyer. Read more on Last.fm.
