The first line up was Del Davis (lead vox, percussion), Papa Curvin Merchant (drums, lead and back vox), Max Macmillan † (bass), Doctor Bogarth (keys, back vox) and Wolfgang Timpe (guitar, back vox). Later Del Davis left and Curvin took over the complete lead vocals. Wolfgang Timpe left too and was replaced by Micho Correa (guitar, flute, percussion). In the end of 1976 Alan Tatham joined in for a while as second drummer, making Curvin stand in front as only-singer for some part of the program, and some other part was played with two drummers - including some remarkable double drum solos. On a few gigs also percussionists like Antonio Augusto or Thommy Goldschmidt (from Fusion Band "Karthago") joined in as guest musicians.

In summer of 1977 the band split and Curvin went on world tour with "Boney M."

In 1980 "BROADWAY" came back togethter originally for two concerts to raise the costs of a lost court trial. They went down so good that some more gigs followed in 1980 and 1981 (again with Wolfgang Timpe on guitar).

In the rehearsal Doctor Bogarth brought up the idea of playing the bridge in "Don´t let me be misunderstood" in a Reggae riddim, and ever since then Eric kept the Reggae bridge in "Misunderstood".

High Crack  1978

A Jazz-Rock fusion project Doctor Bogarth joined for a short time.

The line up is not remembered, but an anecdote to tell:

"High Crack" were rehearsing in an old farm house ("Hof Hirschberg") near Kassel, and Bogie was using an old milking stool from the cow stable (consisting of a three-legged massive iron bottom and a raw wooden seating surface) as seat at the keyboards.
