The Great Speckled Bird Flies Alone
Jerry Gilbert, Sounds, 24 January 1976
THE GREAT Speckled Bird, Canada's most underrated and misjudged supergroup, lives. The original band with Amos Garrett, Buddy Cage and so on have long gone but a transmutation are currently touring behind their original founder and leading light Ian Tyson. Tyson laconically refers to them as "Great Speckled Bird '75" and the moniker seems to fit.
