Malcolm Tomlinson (b. London UK 16 June 1946 – d. Toronto 2 April 2016)

Malcom was a neighbour of mine for many years, until he passed away in 2016. He started out in the early 1960s playing drums in London in a band called ‘The Panthers’. In January 1963, he joined Jeff Curtis & The Flames. The group recorded a five-track acetate with legendary producer Joe Meek before Tomlinson left (in mid-1964) to join ‘The Del Mar Trio’. In February 1965, the group recorded 4 tracks for EMI at Abbey Road. Two months later, they changed their name to ‘James Deane & The London Cats’. In June 1966, Tomlinson joined forces with two members of ‘The Noblemen’ which changed its name to ‘The Motivation’.

By the end of the 60s Tomlinson moved to Toronto  with his former colleague from ‘Jeff Curtis & The Flames’, guitarist Louis McKelvey. They formed the group called ‘Milkwood’ which performed at the legendary ‘Toronto Rock and Roll Revival’ at Varsity Stadium on 13 September 1969. The band also recorded an unreleased LP for Polydor Records. The pair also appeared on another unreleased LP, this time by Toronto singer Jay Telfer. McKelvey and Tomlinson then formed another new band based out of Toronto, Damage, but this was short-lived. Tomlinson played in a succession of local bands, including Syrinx, and a latter day version of Rhinoceros.

Originally released on 45 Independent ST 61 bw Greenfields

Rick & The Romans, who had been playing on the Newfoundland music scene for some time, decided that it was time to make a record. The problem was that they were low on financial resources. So what they did was pack up their van and head to Ontario where they found jobs picking tobacco, eventually arriving at Arc Records Studio where they realized they only had enough money for two hours of recording time. They only managed to get these two songs down on tape before time ran out.

Gordon Waller died of a heart attack on 17 July 2009 at the age of 64.

This band consisted of family and friends from Perth County, Ontario. They released two decent albums in the 1970s of a variety of styles, from fiddle tunes to Cajun music, kids songs and blues. I think there’s even a drum solo on one of the albums. They signed with MCA for their next album release in 1974, produced by Gary Buck, but it failed to chart so they broke up the band.

Stéphane  Greppelli b. 26 January 1908 Paris FR / 1 December 1997 (89) Paris

Greppelli is best known as a founder for the ‘Quintette du Hot Club de France’ with guitarist Django Reinhardt in 1934. It was one of the first all-string jazz bands. He has been called "the grandfather of jazz violinists". Grappelli recorded a solo for the title track of Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here. This was originally made nearly inaudible in the mix, and so he was not credited on the album which, according to Roger Waters, would have been "a bit of an insult". However, a remastered version with Grappelli's contribution sounding fully audible can be found on the 2011 remix of ‘Wish You Were Here.’

Jean-Luc Ponty b. 29 September 1942, Avranches, France

In 1969 Frank Zappa composed the music for Ponty's solo album King Kong: Jean-Luc Ponty Plays the Music of Frank Zappa (World Pacific, 1970). In 1972 Elton John invited Ponty to contribute to his Honky Chateau (1972) album. At the urging of Zappa and The Mothers of Invention who wanted him to join their tour, Ponty emigrated with his wife and two young daughters to the United States and made his home in Los Angeles. He continued to work on a variety of projects – including two of John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra albums.

This song has been recorded by various Irish artists who believed that this was some sort of traditional folksong. However, it was written and recorded by Glen Reid out of Burk’s Falls, Ontario. He started playing in Toronto when he was only 17 in a band called Brannigan’s Boys which made one album for the Dominion Records label in 1970. That was when he wrote My Green Valleys! As a multi-instrumentalist, Reid became a session player for Dominion and later for Boot Records. His association with producer / musician Fred McKenna lead him to the set of CBC TVs Singalong Jubilee, which Reid appeared on for a couple of seasons. He was also a sideman for the John Allan Cameron Show, Harry Hibbs Show and The George Hamilton IV Show.  It’s been recorded by The Wolftones, Tommy Makem, The Irish Rovers and about 30 other artists.

Recorded at Original Sound Studios in Hollywood

In late 1968, Corbetta and Webber formed the band Chocolate Hair. The original single release was a 5:58 version with no edits but an early fadeout, almost immediately after the last verse. This was later trimmed down to 2:58 (for radio airplay only) in which the entire organ and guitar solos are edited out. When "Green-Eyed Lady" started climbing the charts, the single was reworked one last time to include a shortened piece of the organ/guitar break; this became the common 3:33 version used by radio stations today.

Produced by Chris McKhool 2017
Edited for Vinyl by John “Beetle” Bailey at The Drive Shed Recording Studios, Toronto
Mastered by Peter Letros at Wreckhouse Mastering and Paul Gold at Salt Mastering

Violinist Chris McKhool was putting out some pretty interesting solo albums in the early 2000s when he met up with flamenco jazz guitarist Kevin Laliberté and that’s when everything began to click. Fusing their wild sounds with world music, they formed the basis of the Sultans of String. Since then they’ve released several well received albums that have generated a lot of interest. What a treat to finally hear them on vinyl!! It’s a totally different experience. Ten Years of Music is a compilation album of earlier works but it sure works to my liking.

Wiffen had a very strange career, lasting from the early 1960s until today, during which time he has only released three albums, sometimes decades apart. This song was recorded specifically for the CBC radio program ‘Touch The Earth’ hosted by Sylvia Tyson. It’s the last song on side 4 of this double compilation album.

EXTRA EXTRA Just got an amail from Bill Garrett with the inside scoop on this:

Hi Steve,

For the record (so to speak)

Small correction here re. The Best of Touch The Earth album.
Paul Mills produced Sides 1,2 and 3 and I produced the all the tracks on Side 4.
This version of “Cool Green River” showed up later on Wiffen’s “Songs From The Lost and Found” on True North.

The session was recorded at Toronto’s CBC Studio 4S
Engineer - Larry Morey
Producer - Bill Garrett

Players were:
Mike Francis - Guitar
Pat Godfrey - Piano
Ron Dann - Pedal Steel
Kim Brandt - Bass
Dave Lewis - Drums

Also for the record, I love the way you provide the history of the tracks you play.

All the best,

Bill Garrett
