In 1966, the fledgling band began hanging around gigs by The Groop, who were a favourite of Melbourne pop fans during 1966. Eventually, the group played their first live gig, which was headlined by The Groop. The new group immediately attracted the attention of their future mentors, particularly keyboardist Brian Cadd and singer Ronnie Charles. Somebody's Image quickly developed a strong following at Melbourne's premier venues and it wasn't long before the band came to the notice of Go-Set staff writer Ian Meldrum, who was already championing The Groop relentlessly in his columns. Meldrum took over as their manager.
Somebody's Image began their recording career with the single "Heat Wave" a cover of the Martha and the Vandellas song, but it failed to chart. Their second single was a version of Joe South's "Hush" which peaked at number #15. With Meldrum's support and hard work promoting the band, he helped them to secure a firmer recording deal with EMI Records. The band released "Hide and Seek" in 1968 which peaked at number #32.
In September 1968, Morris and Meldrum left the band and they recruited new singer/guitarist Brian Holloway (ex The Dream), but the band parted ways in 1969.
The band released three singles
