Yes the Springfield and the Byrds are what got america going before the LSD Faze

Great group. I was at their good bye concert at the Long Beach Arena. It was on the same day as the last day of the roller coaster(Cyclone). After crappy waves that morning we were the last to ride on the roller coaster(we had to stay on it for an hour), then we walked around the corner to the 12 hour concert. Good friends, good buds, and great tunes. All of the local bands were there. Dr. John, The Hook, Spirit, Country Joe and The Fish, Airplane etc. They broke up at the same time as the Byrds and thus came Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. The rest of them formed Poco.
