For the musicians out there, here's the lyrics and tablature to White Bird

This photo is very rare from 1970
It shows the first personnel changes in the band with the loss of the original keyboardist and singer songwriter, Linda LaFlamme(the first Linda LaFlamme)..This shows the new keyboardest, Fred Webb...This was taken from an old Goldmine article long out of print and was very hard to reproduce..I tried different scanning techniques until I settled on a very high resolution upload and then scaled it back to normal size for viewing..It takes a minute to download, but it's worth it, as it has a very good image of Patty Santos, who is at the bottom..
