In Memory of

||Providence, a six-piece
band from the Portland area that was in effect from about 1971 to 1974.
They released a single and an album entitled "Ever Sense the Dawn" in 1972
on Threshold Records (THS-9).
This was a really
sweet group, somewhat reminiscent of the Moody Blues, but with their own
individual style, very classically oriented. I am trying to track
down the rest of the band as I write this. I understand Bart Bishop
(younger brother of record producer and agent Randy Bishop) is working
in retail somewhere in L.A.

Andy Guzie was in Portland last I checked. Bob Barriatua is a doctor in Portland. The Tompkins have a website, gallopaway.com.
Guzie and Barriatua did a demo album called "Chroma" which is very good
