Bear

From: Boston, MA, USA

This Boston band was originally called Children Of Paradise and recorded the theme music for an early Brian De Palma film, ‘Greetings’ starring a young Robert De Niro. Members included Eric Kaz (keyboards, vocals), Steve Sols (lead vocals), Artie Traum (guitar, vocals), Skip Boone (bass), Darius Davenport (drums).

They released one single and a solo LP titled ‘Greeting, Children Of Paradise’. This awesome LP is a perfect blend of jazzy folk-psych and amazingly has yet to be officially reissued on CD.

Artist information sources include: The book, ‘Fuzz, Acid, and Flowers Revisited’ by Vernon Joynson.
