The American Breed - 1968 - Lonely Side of the City
The American Breed was an American rock band that was formed in 1966 and disbanded in 1969. The group was formed in Cicero, Illinois as Gary & The Nite Lites. The group's greatest success was the single, "Bend Me, Shape Me," which reached number five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1968. The song, written by Scott English and Larry Weiss, was a remake of a recording by The Outsiders that had been released the year before. The group also appeared on the 16 December 1967 episode of the television show American Bandstand, along with Pink Floyd. Lonely Side of the City is the fourth and final studio album by the group, released in the fall of 1968. For their last album, the group decided to move more towards a soft rock approach. However, the group had all but fallen out of favor with the music public, and the album failed miserably. "Walls" was the only single released from the album, and, after releasing several more non-album singles, including the last official American Breed single, "Can't Make It Without You" (1970), the group officially disbanded.
