Born in a New York suburb, songwriter extraordinaire Margo Guryan ironically enough grew up to create one of the most exquisite and appealing, if little heard, one-shot "California" (although actually recorded on the East Coast) soft-pop gems of the kaleidoscopic late '60s (copies have fetched upwards of 200 dollars on the collector's circuit), before gradually disappearing from the scene. Despite the brief shelf life of her commercial career, her musical legacy actually proves far-reaching, stretching across various decades and serving several roles, from serious composer to reluctant performer to songwriter-for-hire and producer to teacher. Her single released album also resonated throughout the pop underground of the 1990s and beyond, serving as a primary inspiration for bands and artists like Wondermints and Linus of Hollywood.
