Birtha was one of the leading female rock bands performing during the early 1970's.  The band consisted of four women: Shele Pinizzotto ( guitar), Rosemary Butler (bass), Sherry Hagler (keyboards) and Liver Favela (drums).  All four members of the group performed lead vocals and harmonies.

Nice one Alex, these guys could actually play their instruments as opposed to some of the more celebrated chick bands of the day.
Rosemary Butler has done many sessions as a backup singer too.
Little Feat for one...
