King Harvest

Formed in New York City c.1972, King Harvest was best known for its one US hit single, Dancing In The Moonlight, in 1973. The group consisted of three keyboardists, Ron Altback, Sherman Kelly and Davy Doc Robinson, plus Ed Tuleja (guitar), Tony Cahill (bass), Rod Novack (saxophone) and David Montgomery (drums). All had been involved previously with other bands and done session work. In 1972, they signed to the small Perception label. Their first single was Altback's Dancing In The Moonlight, a soulful pop song that he and Robinson had performed with their earlier group, Boffalongo. It reached number 13 in the US in early 1973 but King Harvest's future singles were unable to match its success. Only one other, A Little Bit Like Magic, charted, reaching number 91 in 1973. The original line-up recorded one album titled after the hit single, which reached number 136 in the US. The group made other singles, but by the mid-70s had disbanded. A new version of the group was formed in 1976, and included four original members. With support from Beach Boys members Carl Wilson and Mike Love, they were signed to A&M Records and made another album, but, failing to achieve any hits, they subsequently broke up. Tuleja played on Dennis Wilson's 1977 solo PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE while Altback and Robinson performed with Love in his band Celebration.
