Tin Pan Alley

Tin Pan Alley
Years active
since 1973
Supergroup originally known as "Caramel Mama". Disbanded in 1977, with sporadic reunions since 2000.
The four members were all proficient songwriters, session musicians and producers; despite their relatively limited success as a group, they are now considered as the major force behind the popularization of the so-called "New Music" (Japanese 1970's rock).
