From Sacramento and featuring Napa valley native John Zimmerman on lead guitar, The Heard was a later incarnation of the Plague Ltd. By late 1967 Zimmerman had left and was replaced by Rick Harris, Spencer Stout also left around this time and the Heard became a quartet, recording their lone 45 for the Oregon based Garland label in 1968. In 2009 Frantic Records featured two previously unreleased 1966 recordings by The Heard, as well as three by the Plague Ltd, on So Cold !!! a CD collection of Sacramento garage bands. One side of the Garland 45 is included on Luv’s So Free, another CD release from Frantic Records.
