    A collage of the band members from the movie is shown below. The band was Meridian West and the musicians were, in spatial order:

    Guitar - Larry Vogt Flute - Julie Iger Roseman

    Percussion - Al Pimental Bass - Nat Johnson
    This band?

      There's an actual recording of a track from '69 on their website - really nice!

        I've sent them a message to see if they have any other recordings from the period - if they do, someone should really get them released.

          Surprising that hasn't already happened. Such a good track and very exposed in th film.

            They also appear on this gospel LP. Haven't heard their track, but the gospel ones have a bit of a lo-fi recorded live in a large hall sound to them...

              I've been doing some more sniffing around...

              Apparently they also recorded an entire album for Columbia shortly after Bullitt, which according to their drummer Al Pimentel "was perfect, but never released. I had a bad argument with Columbia records – which was my fault". I need to hear this album.
