He subsequently moved towards the new possibilities being opened by psychedelic music as a member of Can. His drumming was prominent in the band's sound. Liebezeit is best known for his exceptional his incredible timing. The members of Can suggested that he was part machine. He sat behind the kit for each of the band’s 12 studio albums.

This particular album was Can’s last real one, and its first in over 10 years. It is also the first Can album since their debut LP which features Can’s original vocalist, Malcolm Mooney. His vocals are spectacular. Totally original.

CBC Broadcast Recording: CBC Records – LM 405
Toronto ON

Art De Villiers has been a prominent brazilian jazz guitarist in Toronto. Bobby Edwards, now living in Tottenham ON, must be the most recorded Canadian guitarist ever. He began sitting in to recording sessions for radio and television back in the 60s when he was still a teen. Since his own professional career took off at the young age of 15, Edwards has performed on over 1.000 television shows and countless commercial recordings, and scored for a large number of motion pictures. During the hey-day of studio work in Toronto, Edwards was among the first-call musicians.

He claims to have been making 6 figures by the time he was an adult. Had money flowing out of his pockets. He participated in two Command Performances before HRH Queen Elizabeth II, and has been a featured guitarist with Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Henry Mancini, Anne Murray, Paul Anka, and Kenny Rogers. By the mid 80s studio work was drying up; commercials were using sound bites and the money dried up. Here, he and Art Devilliers are captured on rare vinyl by The CBC on a broadcast recording with 3 other artists: Jodie Drake, Christopher Jane and Claude Blouin.

The lack of liner notes on Bonanza recordings should be criminal. They never seem to list anything of importance about their featured artist and certainly no info on who played on the recordings. Robert Pinard was a respected fiddler in the 1970s.
