Hour One


1.   A Foot In Cold Water: Driftaway (Taylor / Machin / Naumann / Leggat)
Breaking Through: Anthem Records ANR 1- 1008
Toronto ON
Alex Machin: vocals
Paul Naumann: guitars
Danny Taylor: drums
Hugh Leggat: bass
Produced by Paul Naumann & A Foot In Cold Water 1977
Recorded by Mike Jones w/ Mark Grendel & Greg Marshall at Sounds Interchange, Toronto
Mastered at the Record Plant, NYC

A Foot in Coldwater was formed in Toronto in 1970 from three other bands. Leggat, Taylor, and Horne had been members of Nucleus, and the Lords of London. Machin and Naumann were in the band Island. Together, they signed a recording contract with Frank Davies of Daffodil Records, who named the new band "A Foot in Coldwater". This was AFCW’s last single, released on Ray Daniels’ Anthem Records.

In 1972, Daffodil released the band's first record album, A Foot in Coldwater. In 1973, Daffodil released the second album, The Second Foot in Coldwater. In 1974, Daffodil released a third A Foot in Coldwater album, All Around Us. This album included a shorter version of their 1972 hit "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want", which again made the Canadian singles chart. In 1976, Daffodil had filed for bankruptcy and the band no longer had a record label. In 1977, the remaining members of A Foot in Coldwater recorded a single, "Breaking Through" for Anthem Records; however, the single was a commercial failure and the band subsequently split up. Driftaway is the B Side.

Toronto ON
Tommy Danton: vocal
Nick Bassel: bass
Bill Mulhall: sax
Tom Gilboe: drums
John Stockfish: guitar
Produced  1957

Danton emigrated to Canada from the UK in the 1950s. He originally fronted big dance bands singing crooning ballads before he got into the rockabilly scene. As far as I can tell, he released three singles. They were released on an array of labels: Sparton, Dot, Karen, Barrel and Par Records. He died around 2005.

Ray Sonin, OBE (23 June 1907–20 August 1991) was a Canadian broadcaster, well known for his weekly radio spot on CFRB (the most listened to radio station in Canada at that time) called ‘Calling All Britons’. He was definitely the first North American broadcaster to play a Beatles’ song this side of the Atlantic, ‘Love Me Do’ in December ’62.

Guitarist John Stockfish later went on to play lead guitar for Gordon Lightfoot.

6.   The Esquires: A Touch Of Blue (Gary Comeau / Paul Huot)
Introducing The Esquires: Capitol Records - T-6075
Ottawa ON
Gary Comeau: lead guitar
Clint Hierlihy: bass
Paul Huot: guitar
Richie Patterson, drums
Produced by Clint Hierlihy - August, 1964
Recorded at RCA Victor Studios, Montreal

From Ottawa, The Esquires were signed to Capitol Records in 1963, and are considered to have been the first Canadian pop band to be signed to a major label. In 1964, they received the RPM Award, a predecessor to the Juno Awards, as Best Vocal and Instrumental Group. They became the opening act for some of the major performers of the day, including The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Dave Clark Five and Roy Orbison. Unfortunately, they only produced this one album.

7.   Five D: Dimentia (Five D)
Five D – Ottawa Rocks, Sir John A Years: Sound Investment Enterpirises D-11101
Ottawa ON
Jack Arsenault: rhythm guitar
Brian Bradfield: drums
Brad Campbell: bass, vocal
Dave Poulin: lead vocal
John Miron: guitar
Produced by John Pozer 1967

Another great Ottawa band that came together in 1963. When the Beatles hit they decided to go Mersey Beat with names like The Decades, B.C. And The Cavemen, and The Quotations. In 1966 they became the Fifth Dimension but just as they were about to release their first record, they were informed about the ‘Up, Up and Away’ band using the same name. So they shortened it to Five D.

The band were part of the televised 1967 Centennial Celebrations on Parliament Hill where Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were in attendance. Her Majesty later commented: "They are good, but loud!" They toured opening for the likes of The Who, The Troggs, Wilson Pickett and Ohio Express amongst many others. They broke up in 1970.

Dimentia was most likely recorded in 1967 but never released. I got this off a 1995 compilation CD Ottawa Rocks, Sir John A. Years (Sir John A. being a record company).

Jim Richardson: bass

If was a progressive rock band formed in Britain in 1969. Referred to by Billboard as "unquestionably the best of the so-called jazz-rock bands". In the period spanning 1970-75, they produced eight studio-recorded albums and did some 17 tours of Europe, US and Canada. If thus became one of the most highly acclaimed groups of the Seventies to never quite make the big time, despite good record sales and full venues.
