|New members Tony Gross (guitar), Mark Boatman (Bass), and Dan Odum (lead vocals) join founding members Roger Boyd and Steve Huston on "US 1". Odum had previously been a band member back in the early 70s when he played drums and sang for Head East until he was drafted into the Army. The album was recorded at Long View Farm in North Brookfield, MA where the following year the Rolling Stones would rehearse for their upcoming tour in support of the "Tattoo You" album. "US 1" has never been issued in CD format. However, former Long View Farm owner Gil Markle has made the songs from this album downloadable in the media library of his Studiowner.com website. A music video for "You'll Be the One" can be viewed in the media libary and on YouTube.
