Clover Discography

Clover had a two part career, the first in the late 1960's and early 1970's in the US and the second in the later 1970's in the UK.

The group was formed in San Francisco in 1967 when Johnny Ciambotti joined up with John McFee, Alex Call and Mitch Howie who were members of a group called the Tiny Hearing Aid Company. They performed around the Bay Area over the next two years eventually signing with Fantasy in 1969. They recorded two albums and one single for Fantasy in the early 1970's. Eventually an expanded line-up of the group moved to the UK in 1975 or early 1976. There they released two further albums. The group broke up in 1978 after returning to the US.
