From The Nest (AJP LPS-5160) 1970
Reissued on CD: Dodo DDR 517, 2001

Probably from New York, this short-lived outfit was obviously influenced by Iron Butterfly. Their album features prominent organ and all their material was original and penned by Lawrence Engstrom (sometimes with the help of Kimball Lee). It was produced by the famous jazz musician Ahmad Jamal. From The Nest is now rare and sought after by some collectors.
