    Looking for an American band whose only album was released in a British prog label

    The name just escapes me: there was a early seventies band, either from New York or New Jersey, whose only album was only released in one of the elite prog labels of the time. I thought it was Vertigo, but I didn't find them on their lists. I know they were mentioned with a five star review in one or Record Collector's magazines retrospectives on prog or proto prog rock and their album is fantastic, kind of a similar style -I would say- to Blue Oyster Cult and the like, but included keyboards in their mix. The singer had a rough voice, a la Captain Beefheart or the Edgar Broughton Band.

    Found it. Haystacks Balboa, from 1970. The band included Leslie West's brother.
