Climax emerged from the Cleveland band The Outsiders ("Time Won't Let Me). There were a lot of twists and turns that led them astray. It's an interesting journey from Top 5 to obscurity that you can follow here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climax_(band)
BTW, Buffalo played a big part in breaking "Precious and Few".
October '71...months before it went national. #1 for a month after "Maggie May" spent six weeks there. I remember Jack Armstrong and DB talking how the song had hit first in Hawaii.
The promo ad for "Rock & Roll Heaven" referenced "first Hawaii, then Buffalo" as their prediction that the song would break like "Precious And Few"...only much quicker.
I only learned about the reason they didn't continue calling themselves The Outsiders a couple weeks ago, over on Forgotten Hits.
