Happy birthday, Marty Balin

Marty Balin, born Martyn Jerel Buchwald on January 30, 1942, is best known for his time with the Jefferson Airplane and its successor, Jefferson Starship. While driving my car on a day in 1966 I heard the song "It's No Secret," which introduced me to the group. I was really impressed by Balin's strong and unusual tenor voice.

I like Balin's songs, the best of which convey a strong sentimental streak with which I identify.

So, it's no secret, Marty...happy 68th birthday!
