Babushka Lady's There Is No River has been considered a classic in the underground fantasy prog-rock world. Kind of Hawkwind, Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull and Uriah Heap with some obvious Pink Floyd rip-offs. An average Babushka Lady song is 88 minutes in length. With 34 members (at one point 56), the band couldn't tour unless they all paid for their own tickets to see their own show. In July 1978, the band made it into the Guiness Book of World Records by having the most members to ever be found dead in one hotel room.
