Santangelo sang with Zevon on two 1966 Lyme & Cybelle singles, three of whose four songs she also published with him. The to begin those singles, the raga-rock-tinged “Stick to Me,” produced #65, but Zevon still left the act following the follow-up, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “IN THE EVENT THAT YOU Gotta Go, Move Today,” flopped. Lyme & Cybelle continuing with Wayne Erwin acquiring Zevon’s place, and Erwin and Santangelo sang in the 1966 Lyme & Cybelle one “Tune 7″/”Write IN THE EVENT THAT YOU Get Function,” made by Curt Boettcher. This edition of Lyme & Cybelle extended to a complete music group before Santangelo was terminated by Erwin. All six tracks through the Lyme & Cybelle singles (like the types sung by Santangelo and Erwin), aswell as many Lyme & Cybelle demos (all with Zevon) and early Zevon demos, show up on the Warren Zevon The First Periods compilation.
