After playing in the Dr. Feelgood band for most of the 70s, Johnson started his own band Solid Senders and released the Solid Senders album, which in Amercan was credited to Wilko. After this album he renamed his band The Wilko Johnson Band and released various albums during the 80s and 90s.

In 1973, Baker became pregnant and announced her intention to withdraw from music business. Grashey convinced her to continue, and the pair traveled to Nashville to record four songs. Her first top ten record came from that session, "Ten Little Fingers", a song about a little girl, written by Don Grashey; this song remains one of her most popular songs to this day.

Dominic Michael Guarasci (b Port Arthur, Ontario November 1, 1925 – September 12, 2005)

In 1959, Chuck Williams heard Loretta Lynn perform at a backyard jam session held in a converted chicken coop in Vancouver, British Columbia and told his friend Grashey about it. Grashey believed she was 'terrific' and signed Lynn to Zero Records on February 1, 1960. Grashey produced Lynn's first recording session which took place in Hollywood in March, 1960 and resulted in the hit single "I'm A Honky Tonk Girl."

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.

Michael Bernard Bloomfield (b. Chicago July 28, 1943 – d. San Francisco February 15, 1981)

While still in High School, Bloomfield put his first band together: The Hurricanes. He was expelled after his band performed a raucous rock and roll song at a 1959 school gathering. Bloomfield had attended a 1957 Chicago performance by blues singer Josh White, and began spending time in Chicago's South Side blues clubs and playing guitar with such black bluesmen as Sleepy John Estes, Yank Rachell,and Little Brother Montgomery. He first sat in with a black blues band in 1959, when he performed with Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson at a Chicago club called the Place. He performed with Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and many other Chicago blues performers during the early 1960s. Michael used to say, 'It's a natural. Black people suffer externally in this country. Jewish people suffer internally. The suffering's the mutual fulcrum for the blues.'

In the 1960s he was asked to join the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. In 1965 he was asked to back up Bob Dylan on Highway 61 Revisited. He backed Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival that nearly ended in a riot. In 1967 he helped form a short lived but amazing band Electric Flag who performed at the Monterey Pop Festival. After this he went solo, recorded with Al Kooper on the seminal album Super Session. Then he got addicted to heroin and had to stop performing. He was found dead behind the wheel of his Mercedes, with all four doors locked after an apparent drug overdose in 1981.

Nephew of blues slide player JB Hutto. Guitar Player called the band "a snarling boogie-blues machine." Alligator Records offered them the chance to record a track, "Young Thing", for a compilation album, New Bluebloods (1987). However, producer and label owner Bruce Iglauer encouraged them to record additional material, and they cut a full album's worth of material at that single afternoon session, released as Roughhousin' in 1986. The Blues Imperials lasted until the early 90s when Lil’ Ed went solo, only to regroup again in 1999.

Gary Harold Lee Levitch, July 31, 1946, Los Angeles son of Jerry Lewis.

In 1965, Gary Lewis was Cash Box magazine's "Male Vocalist of the Year", winning against nominees Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Gary Lewis confirms that "She's Just My Style" is the song of his that gets the most airplay today on radio. He told interviewer in 2013 that he sought to emulate the style of The Beach Boys with the recording.

"That's exactly what we were going for too. Even before we started writing it we said 'Let's go for The Beach Boys thing; a little rock and roll with a lot of harmony and I was really happy the way we pulled it off."

The recording also has the distinction of being the very first session that legendary studio drummer Jim Keltner played on

While appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, Gary screwed up while lip-synching this song. Gary was up front, on guitar, singing the vocals; when he thought the song was about to end cold, he stepped back, away from the microphone. However, the song had another bar to go and he had to rush back up to the mike to finish up.

"Mr. Tambourine Man" was written and composed by Dylan in early 1964 after attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The Byrds recorded their version of it in April 1965 (the only song by The Byrds that featured The Wrecking Crew musicians instead of The Byrds with the exception of Roger (Jim) McGuinn on guitar). In August 1964, the band's manager Jim Dickson acquired an acetate disc of "Mr. Tambourine Man" from Dylan's publisher, featuring a performance by Dylan and Ramblin' Jack Elliott. To further bolster the group's confidence in the song, Dickson invited Dylan to hear the band's rendition. Dylan was impressed, enthusiastically commenting, "Wow, you can dance to that!”

This song has been performed and recorded by many artists, including: Judy Collins, Odetta, Melanie, and William Shatner.

Released on 24 May 1968, the LP peaked at number one on the UK Album Charts on 29 June, where it remained for a total of six weeks. The packaging was a parody of Ogden's Nut-brown Flake, a brand of tobacco that was produced in Liverpool from 1899 onwards by Thomas Ogden. The album was originally released on vinyl in a circular novelty package of a metal replica of a giant tobacco tin. This proved too expensive and not successful as the tins tended to roll off of shelves and it was quickly followed by a paper replica with a gatefold cover.
