Later, after the death of Gerry Hall, the band became Cabbagetowne and released a few albums before Andrews went solo. Went on to play with Sandy MacIntyre’s band Steeped In Tradition and back Stompin’ Tom again on his last few tours. Still plays now and then but has dedicated his retirement years to painting.

Aynsley Thomas Dunbar (born Liverpool, 10 January 1946)

He started his professional career in Derry Wilkie and the Pressmen in 1963. In December 1964 he joined the Mojos till 1966. That is when he auditioned for Jimi Hendrix Experience opposite Mitch Mitchell – the latter won on Hendrix's coin flip. Dunbar then joined John Mayall's Bluesbreakers replacing Hughie Flint in the summer of 1966. He stayed with Mayall until the spring of 1967 (playing on the A Hard Road album), being replaced by Mick Fleetwood. After a short stint in the Jeff Beck Group Dunbar founded 'the Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation'. They issued four albums before disbanding. Dunbar then formed a band called Blue Whale and tried to get Robert Fripp to join (he refused) before becoming Frank Zappa’s drummer in the newly reconstituted Mothers of Invention. In 2017 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Journey.

David Russell Gordon Davies (born London, 3 February 1947)

AFL1-3603, the bar code for his first solo album away from The Kinks, fashioned after the RCA serial number of the album. It was mildly successful and lead to the release of two more solo albums shortly thereafter, but they basically flopped. He recently released an album with his son, Russ Davies.

Changed their name to Central Nervous System in 1968. Various players went onto to perform with Lighthouse and Peppertree.

Jim Crewe, rhythm guitar
Bob Battiste, bass
Joe Boulos, drums
Winston Blackmore, vocal
Produced 1965
Recorded in Boston Mass

The Ducats formed in 1959 in Port-Aux-Basques, Newfoundland. They first performed together at a benefit concert for victim's families of the Springhill Mining Disaster. One of the first NL rock bands to record – they had to make their ways down to Boston to do so. Known as “The Orange Marmalade Referendum" when they played USA gigs. The song was originally released on Rolling Stones 2 in 1965, this is probably one of the first covers of the song. The Du-Cats were Canadian and Newfoundland rock pioneers and received The Stompin' Tom Award (unsung hero) at the East Coast Music Awards in 2008.

And now for another album that should never have been recorded:

9.   Eric Burdon & The Animals: The Black Plague (Burdon / Briggs / Jenkins / Weider / McCulloch)
Winds of Change: MGM SE-4484
London UK
Eric Burdon: vocal
Danny McCulloch: bass
Vic Briggs: guitar, piano, vibes
Barry Jenkins: drums
John Weider: guitar, ivolin
Produced by Tom Wilson 1966
Recorded by Val Valentin with Ami Hadani and Ed Kraimer
Mixed by Gary Kellegrin and Ed Kraimer

The debut album by Eric Burdon & the (New) Animals after the original band broke up in 1966. This was when Burdon decided to move from blues to psychedelic music. Burdon dedicated the album to George Harrison of the Beatles, whose espousal of Hindu philosophy following a visit to India the previous year Burdon cited as an inspiration.

IMHO it’s totally out-dated and embarrasing. Definitely an album that should never have been recorded. Filled with poems, monologues and even an answer to the Hendrix song “Are You Expecienced?” called "Yes I Am Experienced".

10. Chubby Checker: The Twist (Hank Ballard)
Tops In Pops: 8 Top Hits only .99: Ultraphonic 4131 S
Spring Gulley, SC
Produced circa 1960

"The Twist" is an American pop song written and originally released in early 1959 (having been recorded on 11/11/1958) by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters. Dick Clark wanted the band to perform (lip sync) the song on his American Bandstand show but he was unavailable. Clark then got Chubby Checker on the show to do the song. The rest is history.

Ultraphonic Records of Toronto issued various 10 inch, 99 cent Eps of “8 Top Ten Hits” without mentioning the names of any artists.

11. The Diamonds: She Say Dom Dooby Doom (Mann / Anthony)
45 single bw From The Bottom Of My Heart: Mercury Records  71404X
Toronto ON
Dave Somerville: lead  d. 2015
Evan Fisher: tenor
Mike Douglas: baritone  d. 2012
John Felten: bass  d. 1982
Produced  1959

In 1953 Dave Somerville, while working as a sound engineer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Toronto, Canada, met three other guys one evening who liked to sing as much as he did. They decided to form a stand-up quartet called The Diamonds. The group's first performance was in the basement of St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Toronto singing in a Christmas minstrel show. The audience's reaction to the Somerville-led group was so tremendous that they decided that night they would turn professional.

After 18 months of rehearsal, they drove to New York and tied for 1st Place on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts. The prize of being guest artist for a week on Godfrey’s show led to a recording contract with Coral Records.  Biggest Hit: Little Darlin’ 1957

12. Eddie Hodges: Would You Come Back (S Sheeley / Jackie DeShannon)
45 single bw Too Soon To Know: Columbia Records 4-42697
Hattiesburg MS
Eddie Hodges: vocal

Samuel "Eddie" Hodges (born March 5, 1947)

In 1959 at age 12, Hodges became Mississippi's first Grammy Award winner for his contribution to the original Broadway cast soundtrack album of The Music Man for which he sang a solo.
He is probably best remembered for the title role in Michael Curtiz's 1960 film The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

He began his musical career in 1967, when he joined the band Kippington Lodge, along with his school friend Brinsley Schwarz. His first EP is Nick Lowe with Kippington Lodge "I Can See Her Face" in 1969. After leaving Brinsley Schwarz in 1975 Lowe began playing bass in Rockpile with Dave Edmunds.

Around this time Lowe became a house producer for Stiff Records. In 1979, Lowe married country singer Carlene Carter, daughter of fellow country singers Carl Smith and June Carter Cash and stepdaughter of Johnny Cash. The marriage lasted until 1990. In 1992 he performed in the ‘one album band’ Little Village with Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Jim Keltner.

In Canada "Stick It Where The Sun Don't Shine" hit the top 40.

Produced by Malcolm’s Interview and David Kenny 1987
Recorded by David Kenny at Ideal Sound Recorders

Malcolm's Interview (1985 and 1989) were an eighties English band driven by the rebellious aggression of both aged folk music and post-punk rock. They were extremely popular on the Canadian folk festival circuit in the late 80s. In 1989 they changed their name to God's Little Monkeys. They supported, and were at some time supported by, many now famous bands ranging from the Crash Test Dummies and The Waltons, Spirit of the West, The Proclaimers, The Farm, The Mekons, Billy Bragg, DOA, The Rheostatics, and more. Breakfast in Bedlam was the only album they released under their original name.

15. McGuinness Flint: When I’m Dead & Gone (Benny Gallagher/Graham Lyle)
45 single bw Lazy Afternoon: Capitol Records 3014
London UK
Tom McGuinness: guitar, dobro
Hughie Flint: drums
Dennis Coulson: keys
Benny Gallagher: bass
Graham Lyle: mandolin, lead vocal
Produced by Glyn Johns 1970
Recorded at Olympic Studios, London

Bernard Joseph "Benny" Gallagher (born 10 June 1945, Largs, Ayrshire) and Graham Hamilton Lyle (born 11 March 1944, Bellshill, Lanarkshire).

McGuinness Flint was a rock band formed in 1970 by Tom McGuinness, former bassist and guitarist with Manfred Mann, and Hughie Flint, former drummer with John Mayall. But the real stars of the band were Benny Gallagher and Graham Lyle (from the songwriting team of Gallagher and Lyle) who left in 1971.

The song was inspired by the life of blues musician Robert Johnson, hence the line in the second verse, "Hey there, Ladies, Johnson's free."

16. Ed Brydie & His Scottish Ramblers: Le Messe Polka (JS Skinner)

Angus MacKinnon: violin
Produced by Art Snider 1961

Featuring a Rambler American on the front cover with the band in tartan jackets in front of Toronto’s Casa Loma. It’s the car that gives the date of the recording away: the black Ontario license plate is from 1961. Byrdie had his own radio show on Toronto’s CKFH called Scottish-Irish Varieties.

Los Angeles CA

Ed King: lead guitar, vocals
Mark Weitz: keys, vocals
Randy Seol: drums
George Bunnell: bass
Gary Lovetro: bass
Lee Freeman: rhythm guitar
Produced by Frank Slay and Bill Holms 1966

The group originally named Thee Sixpence. When they recorded I&P, Greg Munford was visiting the studio and they got him to sing lead vocals. This is another example of a B Side that became the hit song. In this case, their only hit song. Ed King later migrated to Lynyrd Skynyrd.

In their early days of touring, the band members would often sit on "magic carpets" as their roadies carried them to the stage. Drummer Seol would rig up wrist gas jets to give the illusion that he was playing the bongos and vibes with his hands on fire, until the gimmick became too dangerous.

3.   Terry Thomas: Mary Bella Crawfish Esq. (Sid Colin)
Strictly T-T: London Records LL 3292
London UK
Terry Thomas: vocal
Brian Johnston: vocal
Produced by Terry Thomas 1958

Thomas Terry Hoar Stevens b. London 10 July 1911 – 8 January 1990

Well known British comedy (mostly) actor recorded this insane album just as he was becoming very popular. I can’t seem to find much out about Mary Bella Crawfish though.

Corey Glover: vocal
Muzz Skillings: bass

Their signature anthem "Cult of Personality", won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1990. They broke up in 95 but still re-unite to do shows. Mick Jaggar produced two of the songs on Vivid which is possibly why they got to open for The Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tour in 1989. Vivid was one of the most popular albums of 1988, reaching No. 6 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and certified double platinum by the RIAA.

Dan Lowe moved to Edmonton and formed Painter, which eventually morphed into Hammersmith. Lowe's later projects also included 451 Degrees and Prototype, then also became a production guru, working with the likes of Qwest, White Wolf, and George Fox, among others.
