45 Single: Hickory Records – H 1269X

Dean Mathis: piano, lead vocals
Mark Mathis: bass
Larry Henley: guitar, drums
Produced 1964

Maggie, my wife, was born and raised in England. She remembers going to a teen drop-in centre with a friend. They had a few records and Bread and Butter was blaring regularly. She claims that no-one danced to it. Together between 1964–1974, The Newbeats sold over one million copies of Bread and Butter in the U.S. Their only other hit song was Run, Baby Run.

Hickroy Records was a US label formed by Roy Acuff and his partner in the Acuff Rose Music publishing firm Fred Rose around 1955.

Produced by Norman Petty, 1960

Charles Hardin Holley b. September 7, 1936, Lubbock, Texas / d. February 3, 1959 (22) Clear Lake, Iowa

Despite Holly's numerous contributions to rock 'n' roll, a 1957 interview with Vancouver disc jockey Red Robinson suggests that the singer questioned the longevity of the genre. When asked whether rock 'n' roll music would still be around after six or seven months, Holly replied, "I rather doubt it."

Though his professional career spanned just two short years, Holly's recorded material influenced Bob Dylan, who, at age 17, saw Holly perform on his final tour. The Rolling Stones had their first Top 10 single in 1964 with a cover of Holly's "Not Fade Away." The Beatles chose their name as a kind of homage to The Crickets, and Paul McCartney has since purchased Holly's publishing rights.

She made her first recordings for Art Snider’s Chateau Records in 1962 (as did Gordon Lightfoot two years earlier). As he did with Lightfoot, Snider took Hervey to Nashville, took her to meet Chet Atkins who was impressed enough to produce her. It was Atkins that got her the RCA recording contract. She won awards, like Top Country Female Artist, but couldn’t keep pace with the changes in pop music and retired in 1968, moving to Vancouver and getting into acting on TV.

When asked if Germans pronounced the band "Motuuuurhead", Lemmy answered "No, they don't.

The band decided to name themselves Night Ranger after the song that Jack Blades had written for the album. The record company destroyed the copies with the band name Ranger. Their first three albums, Dawn Patrol, Midnight Madness, and Seven Wishes, all reached RIAA Platinum status and garnered the band international fame.

Producer Not Listed, 1963

Charlena was the first pop song by a Canadian group to hit No. 1 on the country’s most respectable radio station, 1050 CHUM where it topped the chart for two weeks. It was recorded in the offices of Arc Records before they had their own studio. Claims George Semkiw (to Bill King): “That was a real coup because up till then, CHUM would not play Canadian records.”

With metal garbage pails lifted off the floor and stuffed with rags to stifle any sound the band started recording. There were no overdubs. Everything was laid down on a mono tape recorder. The process took a few hours, stopping each time there was any error or to move microphones. One take was ruined with a passing train roared behind the building. The band was so successful in the Toronto area that they were asked to open for the Rolling Stones on their first visit, in 1965.

Winnipeg MB

Ron Paley: keys

Produced by Ron Paley, 1968

Recorded at Century 21 Studios, Winnipeg

The Eternals formed in Winnipeg around 1961.

Hailing from Rosa, Man., the Paley brothers hooked up with Steinbach's Hildebrand boys in the early '60s. Playing rock 'n' roll in a strict Mennonite community was pretty audacious for the latter brothers. Ron Paley recalls John purchasing a Fender amplifier from a local merchant in Steinbach. "It was his pride and joy but when the store owner found out John was using it to play rock 'n' roll, he came to his house, retrieved the amp and gave John his money back."

In 1968, they opened “Century 21 Studios”, the first professional multi-track recording studio in the region. John Hildebrand became the recording engineer while Ron Paley supervised the technical installation and operations of the recording equipment. The band basically called it quits in the early 70s to get more into the business side of things.

Ryder next appeared fronting a band named Billy Lee & The Rivieras, which had limited success until they met songwriter / record producer Bob Crewe. Crewe renamed the group Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels who had hits like ‘Devil With The Blue Dress On’, ‘Jenny Take A Ride’ and ‘Sock It To Me.’ Ryder was the last person to perform with Otis Redding, singing "Knock On Wood", on December 9, 1967, in Cleveland, Ohio, on a local TV show called Upbeat.
