Linda practicing for the Mary’s Garden sessions, in Mary Festinger’s back yard, Palo Alto, CA, 1976.
Entropy Service was Linda’s first band. Veteran performers Peter Langston and J.B. White helped Linda to overcome her stage fright, which was substantial. This photo is a good indicator of how seriously they took the music business in those days.
Judith Cook left the band after the first year. She was much missed. They continued as a trio.
