"The Likky Shrine"

This is very sweet: a Norwegian Incredible String Band fan has set up a little virtual 'shrine' to Christina 'Licorice' McKechnie (she was the one with the distinctive high-pitched voice, Robin Williamson's girlfriend and ISB member '68-'72...last seen venturing out across the Arizona desert, and currently on the Missing Persons list in California):

I suspect the same person might be behind this little two minute film montage of Licorice (embedded below, and set to "The Banks of Sweet Italy" from Earthspan, the last String Band album she appeared on). There are a few other String Band-related film clips over at YouTube.

Says her ex-brother-in-law Michael Lambert: "Likki's music always had a magical, elfin quality about it. With good reason. There is a magical, elfin quality about her. I hope she is well."
