Mainly a group of studio musicians, Gator Creek (Mike and Kathie Deasy, Dee Barton and Ray Neapolitan along with sometime members Michael Omartian and Kenny Loggins) recorded their only album, self-titled, in 1970. In that release was "Dirty Boogie" used in Clint Eastwood's "Play Misty For Me" and the second track "Danny's Song" (K. Loggins) written for Kenny's brother Danny on the birth of his son Colin. A year later it was also on the debut album for Loggins and Messina, "Sittin' In".

Anne Murray's cover version of "Danny's Song" in 1972 reached the top ten.
