Opal was a band in the mid 80's and were part of the Paisley Underground scene. Originally called Clay Allison, the band featured David Roback, Kendra Smith and Keith Mitchell. After one single, they released the remaining Clay Allison tracks under the band's new name, Opal, on the 1984 Fell from the Sun EP. Another EP, Northern Line, followed in 1985. These EPs were later compiled and released as Early Recordings. Hope Sandoval joined the band shortly after and they became Mazzy Star. This is a re-issue of the long out of print release.
