The concluding volume, ENCHANTED, Book 2 is slated for release in 2016. Check it out here at Noise Trade at http://books.noisetrade.com/la... band started life as the Reflections, a hometown vocal group in Indianapolis, Indiana, where they charted with a top 40 hit on Chicago's WLS in January of 1964 with a classic uptempo remake of "In The Still of the Night," originally recorded by the Five Satins. One week later the Beatles, "I Want to Hold Your Hand," came onto the chart at #40. The Reflections kept ahead of the Beatles rise for two more weeks until it was discovered their producer had lost their master, and they lost their place in history. They rushed out a record called "In The Beginning," by Larry Huff on Laurie Records but were forced to change their name to the Illusions.

When the group added musicians it changed its name to the Checkmates, finding their way to California and a new name, Stark Naked and the Car Thieves. They went on to play at the high profile San Francisco clubs in North Beach and rock star-studded clubs in Hollywood before landing a spot at Caesars Palace shortly after it opened in 1966. With their lineup of 3 lead singers, they went on to become a model for Three Dog Night. They were managed by Jimmy O'Neill of Shindig! fame, and Seymour Heller, who managed Liberace and several other stars. Signed to their private record label, AVI, distributed by NYC's Bell Records and published by Four Preps, Ed Cobb, their recording success seemed certain. Despite many sessions in the best Hollywood studios, that success eluded them. This Album, "Songs from Things We Lost in the Night," includes "In The Still of the Night," as well as "In The Beginning," and "Look Back in Love." along with the rest of the songs released during these years.
