Little is known about this male-female duo, who put out an obscure, ordinary pop-folk-rock album around 1967 somewhat in the mold of a more pop-oriented Ian & Sylvia (or more arcanely, somewhat like the duo Jim & Jean, themselves a more pop-oriented Ian & Sylvia). The LP was produced by Huey Meaux, noted overseer of numerous fine records from the Texas-Louisiana region, which might mean St. George & Tana were from that area (though the arrangements don't sound especially Texan or southern). Although there were covers of three relatively well-known songs ("High Flying Bird," "The Shadow of Your Smile," and Richard Farina's "Reno Nevada"), most of the material was credited to either John Campolongo or Sacks/Campolongo. It thus seems reasonable to guess that St. George might have been John Campolongo and Tana might have been Tana Sacks, but the scant sleeve notes give no definite clues.
