Abaco Dream was a rock group from New York City.
The members were Paul Douglas, David Williams, Dennis Williams, Frank Malo, and Mike Sassano. They had a single Hot 100 hit in 1969, the Sly Stone written "Life and Death in G & A", which peaked at #74 while charting for six weeks (A&M 1081). Another single from the group, "Another Night of Love/Chocolate Pudding", did not chart when released in 1970.
Sly and the Family Stone
Some musicologists believe that "Life and Death in G & A" is actually a performance by Sly and the Family Stone. They note the similarity in performance of this song to other Family Stone songs, and the dissimilary between this song and other Abaco Dream releases. The song also appears on the CD compilation Listen To The Voices: Sly Stone In The Studio 1965-1970, issued by Ace Records. The vocals are attributed to Joe Hicks, who in 1970 performed a cover version for Stone's Stone Flower label.
