Finally Catching Up With The Dillards
John Tobler, ZigZag, June 1976
THOSE OF YOU who possess that rare back number with Family on the front will perhaps also recall a lengthy treatise of mine about the Dillards. A make up job, as was made clear, due to the fact that the only Dillard I could talk to was an ex-Dillard in Herb Pedersen, who was over here as part of a splendid Johnny Rivers band. Thus, Herb told me what he knew of the group, and that was furiously expanded with rumour, American cuttings, and so on, to the extent where a reasonable outline (I hope) of the group resulted.
