Peter Anders and Vinnie Poncia began their career as the Tradewinds, a psychedelic pop duo who wrote music for artists such as the Ronettes, the Crystals, and other Phil Spector projects. They changed their name to the Innocence in 1967, releasing an eponymous album that was promoted by their label as a "good time" album in the vein of the Lovin' Spoonful. They broke up after the one release. ~ Bradley Torreano, Rovi
