  3. I grew up on most of those songs and picked up the thread somewhere. I don't recall exactly. In any case, her story is one I use now and then as a great example of an unsung female legend.

  4. antiahithophel I accidentally deleted your comment, so I paste it in here:

    "Dr. Callahan, you recently chided -- albeit ever so gently -- a commenter for not using the power of Google and Wikipedia to research his point.

    "I don't know if Neverfox did this, but if you copy and paste the songs into Google, the first link is: "Bass Hits: the official Carol Kaye website."

    But that's cheating!

  5. There were enough Glen Campbell tracks to fool me. Like, I did NOT know that he played on "River Deep, Mountain High" until just now.
