The Blackbyrds

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, January 1976

THE FIRST really big soul occasion for the year so far has been the recent highly successful concert appearances of Donald Byrd and the Blackbyrds. And with the success of the two recording elements new singles – 'Rock Creek Park' by the Blackbyrds and 'Change' by Donald – it gets funk off to a fine start for '76.
