Happy birthday Allan Sherman (1924), Dick Clark (1929), (Noel) Paul Stookey (Peter Paul & Mary) (1937), Shuggie Otis (son of Johnny Otis) (1954) and Billy Idol (Generation X) (1955). Tiny Tim died today, a while back.

Amazing to find this slice of 1971 for sale – at a swap meet no less! Looks to be 5 new releases from Elektra (US). Siren was licensed from Dandelion Records in England, but all the others seem to have their origination in Elektra (US).
