A third album was recorded in 1971 but never released, and the group disbanded later that year. At that point, Chuck Brucato and Al Galich recorded a pair of songs under the Rustix name ("We All End Up In Boxes" and "My Peace Of Heaven") backed by the Funk Brothers. Both were released in 1971, and both backed by a Rustix outtake from their 2nd album sessions ("Down Down"). They were inducted into the Rochester Music Hall Of Fame on April 24, 2016. The surviving band members regrouped for the occasion. They performed Leaving Here, Can't You Hear The Music Play, Free Again & Lady In My Dreams. Band members that performed were Chuck Brucato, David Colon and Vinnie Strenk. Bassist Ron Collins was there, but did not perform due to his health. They were joined on stage by Joe Brucato and members of his band as well as Prime Time Funk. (en)
