Formed in New York's East Village in 1967, Elephant's Memory was a horn-heavy, hard-rocking outfit driven by impressive live performances and a versatile sound. A band of large and dynamic proportions, its reputation was founded on theatrical presence and a transient lineup that delivered rock and roll music laced with jazz, soul, psychedelia and pop. Singer, saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist Stan Bronstein and drummer Rick Frank were the original founders of Elephant's Memory and presided throughout the band's existence while working with a rotating cast of musicians, including Carly Simon as vocalist in 1968. Their surreal debut record, titled "Elephant's Memory", was released in 1969 to lukewarm commercial reception. While arguably best known for their contribution as backup band for two John Lennon and Yoko Ono albums, they also contributed two tracks to the 1969 "Midnight Cowboy" soundtrack and appear in a 1983 documentary titled "Hell's Angels Forever." Their final album, called "Angel's Forever", was released in 1974.
