Produced by Gary Morris and The Ron Fisher Band, 1983

In looking up Ron Fisher one finds some amazingly inccorect information. Like: Ron Fisher from Toronto, ON has designed a plastic pizza case that would replace cardboard boxes and help reduce waste. Or “a former Canadian politician. He represented the electoral district of Saskatoon—Dundurn in the Canadian House of Commons from 1988 to 1993 as a member of the NDP.” Couldn’t find much about the NB guitarist at all.

Speak Over Music:

6.   Figgy Duff: Centennial Highway Reel – Cooley’s Reel

Formed by Pamela Morgan and Noel Dinn in 1976, it was their idea to collect real Newfoundland folk songs and tunes from the sources on the Island and play it folk/rock style, thus Figgy Duff were born. They stayed relevant until about 1993 when Noel Dinn died; Pamela Morgan kept them going through a transformative time. Still a band to this day, to be honest they don’t play very much anymore but when the time is right, they seem to emerge. This is from their second LP. Truly way ahead of their time!

Tamarack came together in the late 1970s, lead by James Gordon and Jeff Bird. Alex Sinclair, acting as their soundman, took over the guitar around 1980. Over the years the band recorded numerous albums of mostly original music capturing Canadian things, like truck driving, hockey playing, farming, discovering and founding. They went through a number of female bass players, beginning with Gwen Swick and ending with the late Molly Kurvink. They were a real going concern for a number of years, spearheading gigs throughout the United States. They lasted well into the current century.

Wrench Tuttle was included in the Canadian music critics top 100 albums of all time.

Wiseman was an original member of Blue Rodeo, leaving the band after they won 5 Juno Awards to concentrate on film and music production. He is credited with having discovered (somewhat) various artists, like Ron Sexsmith, Andrew Cash, Bob Snider and Sam Larkin.

Robin Peter Kendall Bachman b. Winnipeg MB Feb 18, 1953 / d. January 12, 2023 (69)

Randy Bachman’s younger brother. After Bachman left the Guess Who in 1970, he formed a short lived band called Brave Belt with Fred Turner, Chad Allen and Robin, who also went by the name Rob or Bob. This was the nucleus of Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Unfortunately, the Bachman brothers ended the band by suing each other over the use of the name which dragged on for years. I hope they reconciled some of it before Robin died. Randy claims that it was difficult to record Robin playing drums because he played so loud.

Recorded by Bill Porter in Nashville, Nov 13, 1956

James Travis Reeves b. Galloway TX Aug 20, 1923 / d. July 31, 1964 (40) Davidson County, TN

Jim Reeves died in the same plane crash as Patsy Cline. Known as "Gentleman Jim", his songs continued to chart for years after his death. He started playing baseball with the St. Louis Cardinals "farm" team during 1944 season as a right-handed pitcher. He played for the minor leagues for three years before severing his sciatic nerve while pitching, which ended his athletic career. Reeves began to work as a radio announcer and sang live between songs.  That’s what got him started in music. His first hit was with the song "Mexican Joe" in 1953, recorded for Abbott Records. Other hits followed, such as "Bimbo" which reached Number 1 on the U.S. Country Charts in 1954.

The next few years felt very uncomfortable for Reeves; he didn’t like the way he was singing and being recorded. He wanted to sing in a lower register with the mic touching his lips as he sang. Finally, in 1957, he recorded his way, much to the chagrin of the recording company. "Four Walls" not only scored Number 1 on the country music charts but scored Number 11 on the popular music charts as well. This recording marked his transition from novelty songs to serious country-pop music
