And Now for The Particulars

2.   Love Sculpture: You Can’t Catch Me
(Chuck Berry)
Forms And Feelings: Parrot Records 71035
Cardiff, Wales UK
Dave Edmunds guitar
John David - bass
Rob 'Congo' Jones drums
Produced by Dave Edmunds, Mike Finesilver & Pete Ker, 1970

Love Sculpture was founded in Cardiff in 1966 by former members of The Human Beans. They are best known for their 1968 novelty hit "Sabre Dance" by Aram Khachaturian, which reached No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart in December 1968 after receiving air play by British DJ John Peel. The US/Canadian version of their 2nd album, Forms And Feelings, also featured a recording of "Mars" from Gustav Holst's The Planets, but Holst's estate refused to license the tune for the UK version. Edmunds shortly went on to further number one hit success with "I Hear You Knocking", and collaborated heavily with ex-Brinsley Schwarz bassist Nick Lowe, eventually forming the band Rockpile with him. "You Can't Catch Me" is a song written and recorded by Chuck Berry, released as a single in 1956.

Produced by David Rubinson, 1968
Recorded by Don Puluse and Glen Kolotkin - August 30, 1967 - February 5, 1968

This is from the second Grape LP for Columbia which was marketed as a double album. Actually, these were two separate albums marketed together: the first disc is Wow and the second called “Grape Jam” featuring an in-studio jam session with Al Kooper and Mike Bloomfield.

Dewey Martin: drums
Bruce Palmer: bass
Produced by Charles Greene, Brian Stone, 1966
Recorded July to September 1966 by Tom May, Doc Siegel, James Hilton, Stan Ross
Mixing: Buffalo Springfield, Charles Greene, Brian Stone

From the first Buffalo Springfield album by this 3/5ths Canadian band in 1966. Great bass playing drives this in jam, probably more typical of what the band were like back then as opposed to what was produced on the rest of this album. The band never liked the way it was produced, feeling that it didn’t adequately reflect what they were like live. But it seems to come across quite well on this record.

6.   Mothers Of Invention: It Can’t Happen Here
(Frank Zappa)
Freak Out: Verve Records V-5005-2

Produced by Tom Wilson, 1966
Recorded by Val Valentin at Sunset-Highland Studios of T.T.G. Inc, Hollywood

From Frank Zappa’s first album with The Mothers, released as a double album in 1966. This is the 3rd movement of the suit, Help, I’m A Rock. Everyone thinks that “It Can’t Happen Here” but they’re wrong; it just did happen here. This song may be 55 years old but….

Freak Out! was honored with the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1999.

7.   Jørgen Ingmann & His Guitar: Apache
(Jerry Lordon)
45 Single bw Echo Boogie: Atco Records 6184
Copenhagen DK
Jørgen Ingmann: all instruments
Produced 1961

Jørgen Ingmann Pedersen (26 April 1925: 21 March 2015) aged 89

He was influenced by American guitarist and recording studio pioneer Les Paul. In the mid-1950s he set up his own studio where he developed techniques of multi-tracking and distortion, using his own accompaniment on bass and drums, and began recording under the name Jørgen Ingmann & His Guitar. Ingmann's 1961 version of Apache (originally recorded by The Shadows) charted at #1 in Canada on the CHUM Chart

8.   Downchild Blues Band: Can’t Lose What You Never Had
(McKinley Morganfield)
Straight Up: Special Records: 9230-1029
Toronto, ON
Don Walsh: guitar
Rick (The Hock) Walsh: vocal
Jim Milne: bass
Paul Nixon: drums
Produced by Alan Duffy & Bill Bryans, 1973
Recorded by Terry Brown at Toronto Sounds Studios
Mixed by Alan Duffy and Bill Bryans

Richard ‘Hock’ Walsh b. Dec 19, 1948 / d. Dec 31, 1999 Toronto (51)

Here’s their basic line-up before Hock Walsh was fired the band in 1974. He founded it with his brother Donnie in 1969 and was fired on numerous occasions (the last time being in 1990). Hock was a founding member of the Cameo Blues Band, house band at the Hotel Isabella in Toronto.  He was lead vocalist on the first 3 Downchild albums. He also appeared on 1989’s Gone Fishing.

Kelly Littleton: drums
Produced by Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials and Bruce Iglauer, 1989
Recorded at Streeterville Studios, Chicago by Justin Niebank and Jay Shilliday

Ed Williams b. Chicago April 8, 1955

This was from the Imperials’ 2nd of 3 album releases between 1986 - 92. A pupil of the great slide guitarist JB Hutto who carried the torch of Elmore James. Their style evokes the playing of Jeremy Spencer and Hound Dog Taylor who were ardent followers of Hutto and James as well.

10. Ever-Lovin’ Jug Band: Just Can’t Wait
(Minnie Hart / Bill Howard)
Tri-City Stomp: Duke of Erb Records WHRC 12-01
Kitchener ON
Minnie Heart: vocal, banjolin, violin, jug, kazoo, bass

Willie Ames: cello, tenor guitar, vocal
John Smith: clarinet
Produced by Bill Howard & Minnie Heart 2012
Recorded at the Duke of Erb
Mixed by Matthew Knischewsky
Mastered by Harris Newman at Greymarket Mastering

I met these people up at Summerfolk in Owen Sound and they quickly put this album into my hands. Unlike most jugbands, they don’t cherry pick the typical jugband songs; they write their own material in the spirit of the them. They understand the concept, sound and times of the original Memphis based jugbands of the 1920s and 30s. While I’ve never asked, I’m certain that singer Minnie Hart took her jugband name from two of her faves: Memphis Minnie and Hattie Hart, both of whom were backed on disc by Will Shade’s Memphis Jug Band.

Jack Blades: bass: lead vocal
Brad Gillis: guitar, vocal
Produced by Pat Glasser, 1982
Recorded by John Van Nest at Allen Zentz Recording
Mastered by Brian Gardner at Allen Zentz Recording

Dawn Patrol is the debut studio album by Night Ranger released in 1982. The band was named Ranger during the recording of the album. The first issues of the album were printed and ready to be shipped when it was discovered that there was a country band from California with the same name. 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.

Their next single, Show Me Girl, was not released on this side of the Atlantic; our next Hermits’ hit was this one. Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat was followed by Silhouettes, Mrs Brown, Wonderful World and Henry The VIII in quick succession in 1965, establishing them as one of the biggest bands to invade North America from the English north.

Canadian Production: Paul White

Michael George Smith b. 6 Dec 1943 Edmonton UK / d. 28 Feb 2008 (64) Aylesbury UK

Hailed as one of the best voices in British rock n’ roll, he was the lead vocalist for the Dave Clark Five. Smith first met Dave Clark when they were both members on the same football team for the St. George Boys Club. By his mid-teens, Smith had developed a strong vocal delivery, while idolising Little Richard, among other American rock & roll stars. At age 17, while working for a finance company, Smith was invited by Clark to join his band. Due to his role as lead singer, Smith was considered the main star of the band. He died 11 days before he was to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Produced by Elliot Mazer, 1968
Recorded by Fred Catero
Engineer: Val Valentin

Ellis Island was the sophomore release by this Yorkville (Toronto) band featuring their new bass player, Brad Campbell, recruited from local Toronto band, The Last Words, after replacing Denny Gerrard. This was right after the band’s disastrous performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 when ‘everything that could go wrong, did go wrong’. Somehow I found this album to be a little a little disjointed, never finding that magical groove that had driven the band from Toronto to New York and Los Angeles, only to crash in debt and flames. The album was produced by Elliot Mazer who would later go on to work with Neil Young.

Peter Tosh b. 19 October 1944 Grange Hill, Jamaica / d. 11 Sept 1987(42) Westmoreland, Jamaica

Mystic Man is my favourite Peter Tosh album. Just after it came out, in 1979, I got to see him play at the Ontario Place Forum, in Toronto (with the revolving stage). Reggae was still new to most of us, Bob Marley was the only Reggae name most of us knew back then. Held together by Sly and Robby (bass and drums), the album, in my opinion, is perfect in every.

Al Laurence Di Meola b. July 22, 1954, Jersey City, NJ

When he was eight years old, he was inspired by Elvis Presley and the Ventures to start playing guitar. His teacher directed him toward jazz standards.
