janet ferguson

aka: gabby, gabby furggy


     from: unknown

i traded e-mail with janet recently. she now works in some capacity for disney! (the very thought!). she appeared on george duke's album "the aura will prevail," in 1975, along with the albums by frank that she appears on. she said she has done no other vocal work up to this time. on the duke album, she is billed as "amanda b reckonwith."  she told me that george duke came up with the name. she also said she was expecting to see jeff simmons soon (he lives in seattle), and had recently spoken to cal schenkel, who still lives in the boston area.

i corresponded with janet briefly when i first got online in `94. she was indeed working at disney. of course, her husband is paul hof, former fz equipment manager.

i took a look at the 4' long poster that came with "burnt weeny sandwich" and there was something there that i had completely forgotten about.  they have a picture of a woman named gabby furggy with the rest of the group, and it credits her for singing "dit-dit-doo-way-doo" on "wplj".
