Q What's going on these days with one of my favorite singers from the 1970s, Maria Muldaur? And was that her real name?
—John Karlson, Alma, Mich.
Muldaur, who was born Maria Grazia Rosa Domenica D'Amato, had a smash hit single in 1974 with "Midnight at the Oasis." Now 63, she lives in San Francisco and continues to record and tour. Her latest CD, Heart of Mine: Love Songs of Bob Dylan, was released to rave reviews last year.
