Artist: Ian And Sylvia
Release: Great Speckled Bird
Date: 1970
Genre: Country/Folk
Sylvia is from Chatham. Born Sylvia Fricker.

Ian & Sylvia join a country-rock band! The new name may suggest a more dramatic change than what we actually hear, for the album flows quite naturally from their previous forays into country. Another fine album. (One problem with the CD is that the writing credits don’t distinguish between Ian & Sylvia Tyson, crediting them simply to “Tyson”, so you don’t know for sure who wrote what.)Source

Credits:
Amos Garrett
: lead guitar
Buddy Cage: steel guitar
N.D. Smart II: drums
Ken Kalmusky: bass
David Briggs: piano
Produced by Todd Rundgren.
