Настоящий диско раритет

Информации об этом коллективе или музыканте нет фактически никакой
Даже если уважаемый всеми сайт http://e.discogs.com/ размещает следующее:

When it comes to music the name Quartz is relatively common. While researching for this page I found many groups with the name Quartz, particularly a rock outfit from England. This album and all those associated with it rank up there as one of the more obscure and unknown.

Besides having a nice hit with "Beyond The Clouds" and the epic "Quartz," the self-titled album gives no information on who were the players on this 1978 French release. Production and writer credits go to C. Quartz, now we don't know if this an actual person or a nom de plume? The fact that there is no singers or musicians listed on it makes honoring Quartz a near impossible task.

A second album in 1979, released on Polydor (first was on T.K./Marlin), yielded no disco hits. "Camel In The City" failed to chart and is nearly impossible to find. Whoever was responsible for the Quartz albums has our appreciation and respect.

То уже, что можно добавить?

Известны только 2 альбома.
Музыка без сомнения будет интересна любителям Space и Saint – Preux.
