If you can find it, look for an album from 1975 by Freeman and Lange, called Freeman and Lange. It's a Flying Fish recordingm #011. I have it on vinal, but my turn table doesn't work, so I can't get all the lyrics to to song, Non-smokers Liberation Frant Anthem by Don Lange. It's a great song--very funny. I just remember one line that comes near the end of the song:

Before your next nico-fit Take a stick of dried beef You can chew it; you can suck it And it won't stain your teeth

Freeman and Lange were an excellent duo and great songwriters and guitarists. They were an Iowa group based around Iowa City. I don't have any idea what happened to them. For some reason, I think Lange moved to Chicago.
