There is a passage in Vivien Johnson's book on Radio Birdman where Ron and Dennis Thompson are returning from these shows, just gassed on the possibilties inherent in their new supergroup, little understanding at that point that the Birdman guys were already moving on to new careers. I think Ron took it pretty hard, but I know he and Deniz remained friends. Ron had tried to get Deniz to stay in Ann Arbor in like 1977 when he was visiting family on a break from school in Australia, but Deniz just brushed it off as Birdman had just recorded their first LP and he couldn't imagine being in a different band.
That New Race LP is top notch IMO. Closes the circle on the 70s Aussie/Motor City connection in a spectacular manner.
Here are some recent ones:

-"The Don Shirley Point of View"-Don Shirley
-"S/T"-Quadrant ft. Joe Pass, Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, & Mickey Roker

-"The Prisoner"-Herbie Hancock
-"S/T"-George Russell Sextet ft. Don Ellis & Eric Dolphy
-"Blue Vibrations"-Dave Hamilton
-"S/T"-Spyro Gyra (cheesy, good for cleaning up the crib for New Year's Eve)
-"Voyeur"-David Sanborn (ditto; had to lighten my mood a bit after more serious, somber stuff listened to earlier)
-"Dark Side of the Moon"-Pink Floyd
-"Legalize It"-Peter Tosh
-"A Real Mother For Ya"-Johnny "Guitar" Watson

The Three Sounds - Soul Symphony
Bronx River Parkway - San Sebastian 152
Timmy Thomas - You're the song I've always wanted to sing
Shuggie Otis - Inspiration Information
Shuggie Otis - Here Comes Shuggie Otis
Just read the Wax Poetics interview with Shuggie Otis so I was inspired to listen to his records. I also put on the Al Kooper "Introducing Shuggie Otis" album but didn't make it all the way through that one - excessive blues noodling jams.
Yeah, except all parties were aware that 2 of the guys were in medical school/residency, and that all activities revolved around the medical stuff. The guys in Birdman were used to it, I don't think the Detroit guys took it seriously until they saw that group evaporate under the same circumstances. My impression was that the Aussies never saw it as more than a one-off event.
Royal Brothers Band - The Singing Guitar
Ami Koita - s/t
Magical Power Mako - Super Record
The Miracles - Hi...We're The Miracles
