I got Opal's Early Recordings released by Rough Trade in 1987 from The Brogues the other day. Opal was a band that included members of Paisley Underground bands The Rain Parade, The Dream Syndicate and (early) Green On Red. There's even a MySpace page dedicated to them here. It's a fantastic record and sounds much like David Roback's next project Mazzy Star, in which Hope Sandoval replaced Kendra Smith. Here's a psychedelic little track called "Lullaby" for you.
