Mastered at Sterling Sound NYC by George Marino

Canadian rock band formed in 1969. Originally based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In early 1970 the band relocated to Montreal and was signed by Aquarius Records. They recorded and released their debut album “April Wine” in September 1971.

In mid-1977, April Wine was booked to play a charity concert at the El Mocambo Club in Toronto. Co-headliner on the bill was a band called "The Cockroaches," who turned out to be The Rolling Stones. April Wine's performance was captured by The Stone’s producer Eddie Kramer (Zeppelin & Hendrix), who was there to record the Stone’s album “Love You Live”, and released as the album “April Wine Live at the El Mocambo”. The band got its first chance at touring the U.S. following the El Mocambo gig, first opening for The Rolling Stones, then for various popular headliners, including Styx and Rush.

Recorded by André L’esperance & André Marchand

Up until this time the band were a quartet playing trad music in a traditional way. With the addition of contrabasse and piano they started to swing a little more, opening the door to a jazzy horn section that would totally transform them into a dynamic force that nobody could compete with. Recipients of 3 Junos and numerous Felix Awards (in Quebec). Although they have no original members left, the band continues to wow audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

3.   Canadian Beadles: I’m Coming Home
Three Faces North: Tide Records TLP 2005

Vic Miller: guitar
Paul Case: drums

Produced 1964

Origin:  Sarnia, Ontario (group); Vancouver, British Columbia (Vic Miller); Kingston, Ontario (Paul Case); Sarnia, Ontario (Bruce Pollard)

Recorded 3 singles as The Blue Echoes 1964 & 1 LP as Canadian Beadles 1965
Also recorded 2 singles under the name Vic, Paul and Bruce

A Merseybeat-influenced band, as hinted by their name, whose records are now very sought-after and collectable. They started out in early 1963 as The Blue Echoes and came from Sarnia, Ontario, but also spent some time in California.

Canadian Beadles from Sarnia (Ontario) included in its membership three guys named Vic Blunt (Ralph Miller, guitar, played in The Blue Echoes, Mojo Men, The Frantiks, Center Stage), Paul Case (drums) and Bruce Pollard (drums, vocals, previously played in The Stacatos, later - in The Soul Survivors).

Recorded for the "Tide" label in the US, in which Ralph Miller sent a tape to with recordings of group as The Blue Echoes, in 1963, playing in the style of "merseybeat". The head of Tide, Ruth Christy, was impressed and invited them to come to the US, which they did. It was there, at the beginning of 1965 before a show in the Los Angeles "Coliseum" (which was held under the name "KFWB's Beatle Alley") that they decided to call themselves The Canadian Beadles. As a trio they enjoyed great success in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas since Vic, Paul & Bruce (the name they began using at the end of 1965) could sing just like The Beatles.

Recorded Live at the El Mocambo, Toronto 1976 by Eddie Kramer

Love You Live is a double live album by The Rolling Stones, released in 1977. It is drawn from Tour of the Americas shows in the US in the summer of 1975, Tour of Europe shows in 1976 and performances from the El Mocambo nightclub concert venue in Toronto in 1977

The Stones decided to round out the live album by adding a second album, with live club recordings performed at the El Mocambo Club in Toronto on 4 and 5 March 1977. The intention was to play a set of the sort of classic blues and R&B covers that sealed their reputation back at the Crawdaddy Club in London in 1963. However, Keith Richards arrived late for scheduled rehearsals as he and his partner Anita Pallenberg had been arrested for possession and trafficking of illicit drugs in Richard's Toronto hotel room.

Despite these legal troubles, the shows themselves went well enough, though thesong versions that appear on album are heavily overdubbed. Only "Around and Around" is not overdubbed.

The band Thee Deuces was originally formed in 1964 in Almonte south-west of Ottawa as an instrumental group who performed for nearly a full year at Inter-Provincial Hotel in Hull, Quebec as the house band.

By the summer of 1967, the band decided to update their name - The Heart - and their sound by adding former Luke & The Apostles keyboardist Peter Jermyn. But Jermyn would leave again in 1968 to form The Modern Rock Quartet with former Esquires members Doug Orr and Robert Coulthart. The Heart then recruited Corbin and Arseneault from The Five D for one more single called "Yesterday Was a Dream" on RCA at Christmas that year. The act lasted only until the Spring of 1969.

Sir John A Records - Named after Canada's first Prime Minister, was a label that existed for less than 2 years. Formed to celebrate Canada's centennial year in 1967 by local Ottawa personality John Pozer and musician/artist Ron Greene - the label tapped into some of the Ottawa area's hottest up and coming bands. The records issued on the label were very limited pressings of 100 - 500 quantities.
