I agree with Danny that music and Boyd r priceless. What if his talents had not payed off as it deserves to be. The best part is to bring your talent in front of the world. Then its upto them to give it due recognisition or not.Anyways i m waiting for CD.

"Going back to the mid-Sixties, I've heard more than any one man's fair of singer-songwriters, so it takes a lot to get my attention. Mark Abis got my attention. His melodies are original, his voice warm and distinctive, a real musical sensibility is obvious, with literate lyrics to boot. My vote for one of the best of the new generation."

Boyd has a good head for what was happening in the Sixties, and after Nik Cohn's definitive "Rock from the Beginning" my hope is that his White Bicycles will be essential reading. He seems to point something up thats been ignored: music is a social product and as good a means of tracking what a society is doing as any wall painting.

Lord have mercy...Linda's sure got moxy & chutzpah. That's an "every woman's moment" if I ever heard one!


If anyone is interested in the fundamental differences between genders, Joe's "relationships-ectomy" from his bio would be one of the most vivid examples. Fascinating man, for sure - but Linda is equally fascinating.

Women recognize that people we love influence us as much as any tune, song, or band.

Boyd is typical of the many "patrician" types who populated the music business in the 60's. Smokin dope with someone on W.3rd St in 1964 turns into magically being the 'recruiter' of the 'folk rock super group' the Lovin' Spoonful in whitebicycles.
What BS! You go Linda!
