Paisly dream

This one is almost impossible to find, because it's David Roback's second band, Opal, with Kendra Smith doing the singing duties on "Here the wind blows". Nothing of theirs is still in print, mostly because Kendra Smith has basically disappeared into the woods of Northern California, where my suspicion is that she's doing things of a pharmaceutical nature (heh) while playing Earth Mother.

You might better remember David Roback's third band, Mazzy Star. Kendra Smith was about halfway through Opal's first tour when she suddenly decided she didn't want to be in a band anymore, and went home. Robacks then asked one of Kendra's acquaintances, Hope Sandoval, to finish the tour as singer with them, and the band renamed themselves to Mazzy Star after the end of the tour.
