Album Notes
Avalon USA started in 1989, when Jeff Kalmar and Joel Pirard agreed to start a new band together. After having played in ORION, (with John Curtin) they had a good idea of what they could come up with. \"We scouted around searching for the people that would eventually make up the band, careful to avoid the \'weak links\' that had broken up our other band, \" Jeff stated. Bruce Henninger, was recruited from an advertisement in a musicians\' journal, and the search for a bassist continued. For a short time that spot was filled but the demands of the music soon brought about more change. John Curtin had been sitting in from time to time and eventually came aboard as bassist/lead guitarist, soon followed by Dan Bonadeo. Thus the birth of the band.

Gigging furiously, AVALON USA even devoted time to a YES tribute show, all the while writing new powerful material, and re-doing a number of ORION songs. For the first time, this collection will put the studio tracks of their 2 previous releases, \"Five of the Best\" and \"The Dreamer and the Dream\" together on one disc.

My older brother was into these guys from his college days. He had a few tapes he made at shows, (with the band\'s permission) and so I always wanted to hear them in a studio. This stuff is a bit retro now, but damn! what playing!
