The Palace Guard didn't make much of a splash anywhere but Southern California. The band didn't chart nationally, but one of its songs, the folk-rock "Falling Sugar," was well-received regionally. The group debuted on Orange Empire Records, a Los Angeles-based label, with the single "All Night Long." Later, Verve Records picked up distribution rights to "Falling Sugar." The band moved over to Cameo/Parkway Records in 1966 and put out "Greed" and "Saturday's Child."
