Fabulous Rhinestones

The Fabulous Rhinestones were an R&B-based music group formed in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA in 1971 by ex-Illinois Quickness Press guitarist/singer Kal David and ex-Electric Flag (and Bob Dylan, Al Kooper, and Mls Davis) bassist Harvey Brooks. They transferred to Woodstock, NY, where they used members from the Band plus some of their very own fellow Chicago bluesmen, including Paul Butterfield, and had been signed by maker Michael Lang — the co-producer from the Woodstock event — to his personal Just Sunlight label. The group cut three LPs on the next 3 years, which received essential raves without offering in huge amounts — in addition they got considerable publicity playing on a single bill using the Allman Brothers, Stevie Question, as well as the Doobie Brothers, but their most noticeable gig was most likely playing a 1971 antiwar rally in NY with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. They split in the middle-’70s and David later on used Etta Wayne, Al Kooper, and Johnny Streams. The Fabulous Rhinestones’ function has been put together for reissue on Compact disc in Japan in the 21st hundred years.
