The Wind in the Willows was an American band which included Deborah Harry as a back-up vocalist.[1] The band took its name from British writer Kenneth Grahame's, The Wind in the Willows, a classic of children's literature.[2]

The band's only album, the self-titled The Wind in the Willows (1968, Capitol Records LP2956),[3] grazed the charts at #195. The band broke up shortly after failing to achieve commercial success or critical acclaim. Harry subsequently achieved fame and success fronting the new wave band Blondie which she founded in 1974 after leaving another band, The Stilettos.

Wind in the Willows recorded a second album which was never released. The whereabouts of the tapes are unknown. According to Cathay Che's biography on Harry, it has never surfaced, but Harry was said to have contributed more vocals than on the first album, as well as writing lyrics for a track entitled "Buried Treasure".
