I was in Annakonda for about two years. We traveled mostly the in the NW, Alaska and Hawaii. This was the show band days. Stan Morris and I joined the band in about 1973 or 74.  I played a little drums but mostly sax, congas and I was a front man. Kind of a comedian.

Paul Rosenberg, December 2005

I was one of the original members song writer, vocals and keyboards.  A song I wrote on the B side of a 45 we put out was called Sonic Boom and flip side (I wrote) called Wheedle's Groove was re released by Light in the Attic Records in Seattle on a CD entitled Wheedle's Groove, released world-wide.  A few months ago, Quincy Jones used the song, Wheedle's Groove, in a TV special he did on CNN.   I am sending along the link to that special he did
