It was just sort of a late sixties hippie-rock pop single, it got lots of
AM airplay for a while, not sure how high on the charts. When I got hybrid
Vigor I knew I recognized her name from somewhere, but couldn't place it.
Last night my daughter was listening to some oldies station and they played
that song and annouced it, that's when the light came on - but I was
doubtful, that was a *long* time ago! That's why I asked.
