Turnquist Remedy were a band that embodied the fluid guitar sound and vocal harmonies so prevalent of the late 60's and early 70's. Turnquist Remedy played together from 1968 to at least 1971, possibly later. Band members were Michael Woods, Murphy Scarnecchia, Scott Harder, and John Maggi (Larry Vilaubi, Larry Knechtel, and George Semper played on the album).
They toured Northern and Southern California extensively during these years. Research shows they played together as early as December 13,1968 at The Bank in Torrance, California and as late as August 1, 1971 at the San Diego Sports Arena. We have also heard a rumor that they appeared on the 1960's drama show "The Mod Squad" as a hippie band; however, this has not yet been confirmed. Michael Woods went on to play with America in the late 70's and early 80's while John Maggi later performed with String Cheese.
Larry Knechtel was a session musician best known for his work with Simon & Garfunkel (piano on Bridge Over Troubled Waters), The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds, Smile), and Bread. His electric bass guitar riffs on The Byrd's "Mr. Tambourine Man" are now legendary. Special thanks to Al Schmitt for his assistance in this project.
