The New Breed

From Sacramento, CA, the brand new Breed recorded several British Invasion-influenced pop-garage singles in the mid-’60s that did well within their hometown and some other pouches of North California, but went unheard elsewhere. Among the many good but relatively colorless rings of their type, they at least experienced good flavor in material, documenting a version from the obscure Lennon-McCartney track “I’m In Like” (which have been a English strike for the Fourmost), and covering Randy Newman’s “I AM Incorrect Before” when the vocalist/songwriter was basically unfamiliar. The stomping “Green Eyed Female,” a Sacramento strike, was their finest original track. The group pursued a far more psychedelic path after 1966, and transformed their name to Pleased for an recording on ABC in the past due ’60s. In the 1970s, they converted into Redwing, who documented several LPs for Dream. If the brand new Breed are pointed out at all ever sold books, it is because bassist Tim Schmit became a member of Poco in 1970, and the Eagles in 1977.
