Opal (2) ‎– Happy Nightmare Baby. Label: SST Records ‎– SST 103. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. I really like this album a lot. It's mellow, darkish and relaxing all in one great album. It's not meant to be commercial or listened to by the masses but the few lucky that have it and have heard it know it remains in a closet in your mind forever and for whatever reason. Something about it touches me and in a good way. They went on to form Mazzy Star and this album was proof of good things to come. Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.

For one thing, Opal was very much its own band, with Kendra Smith's particular lyrical visions of mystic power and universe-scaling dreams and nightmares its own entity. As is her singing, though she's got less of Hope Sandoval's wistful drift and more focused control - check out the brief "A Falling Star," where the comparatively stripped-down arrangement places her singing in the foreground, notably without much in the way of echo.

Happy Nightmare Baby, Opal's first full-length album, was released in 1987. Smith left the group during the Happy Nightmare tour after a show in Providence, Rhode Island. Roback continued with vocalist Hope Sandoval, playing shows as Opal and planning an album to be titled Ghost Highway but in 1989 this band became Mazzy Star and Ghost Highway was presumably released as She Hangs Brightly. Kendra Smith released a number of solo singles, EPs, and one album before retiring to the woods of northern California.
