Harmony Grass came into existence in September or October ’68, mainly because the name we’d had for many years, Tony Rivers and the Castaways, had earned us a great reputation, as a ‘live’ band, but apart from a few visits to the low end of the ‘Top 40’, hadn’t helped us to get the ‘big one’. We started to think that maybe the name was holding us back. The first record we released under the new name ‘Harmony Grass’, was a hit! Sadly, this spelled the end for ‘old’ name, but this record received the one thing the ‘Castaways’ records had never had, and that was serious airplay!!
