The History of Boston Rock and Roll

Here's an excerpt from the 1978 page:
Cindy Bullens: In a year when the percentage of woman vocalists with major releases jumped 90% from 1976, this young girl from West Newbury, Mass. debuted on United Artists records with the LP, Desire Wire. She started out as a background singer for disco hits like Disco Tex's "Get Dancin'" and then for Elton John, Rod Stewart and Bob Dylan. After playing Boston in the early seventies, she split, like many before her, to the west coast. She first recorded with Bob Crewe (of the Slay-Crewe team, who discovered Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon) and was soon off touring with Elton John after crashing a Rocket Records party. The lead cut, "Survivor", reached #56, 1978.
