Cam-Pact

Cam-Pact started as a Tamla Motown/Stax soul group in April 1967, before progressing through teenybopper and psychedelic stages and on to heavy blues.

The band endured many lineup changes but the second version of Cam-Pact featuring Mark Barnes, Greg Cook, Trevor Courtney, Keith Glass and Chris Stockley was the most successful line-up.

In late 1967, they were spotted by entrepreneurial doctor and would-be pop Svengali Geoffrey Edelsten, whose family owned the Edels record shop chain. He signed them to record a single and their debut 45 Something Easy was released in February 1968, rising to #22 in the Melbourne Top 40.

Their subsequent singles – Drawing Room (May 1968), Good Good Feelin’ (September 1968) and Potion of Love (June 1969) – were all fine examples of late-60s psychedelic pop.

By late 1968, Barnes had left and Glass was playing bass. Glass and Stockley had also left Cam-Pact by the middle of 1969, with Stockley joining Axiom and then The Dingoes.

Camp-Pact’s last single was Zoom Zoom Zoom, released in September 1969.
