Daniel David Kirwin (b. Brixton UK, 13 May, 1950 – d. London June 8, 2018)

Only 17 when he came to the attention of Fleetwood Mac in 1967, he was left holding the flame after Peter Green and Jeremy Spencer left the group. Bare Trees was his swan-song album, released just before he was fired for drunken behaviour. By then, Christine McVie (Perfect) and Bob Welch (guitarist) were in the band, writing pop songs. The winds were changing and the Mac obliged, leading them in a new direction. This album perfectly expresses Autumn feelings.

2.   The Beatles: Revolution (Lennon / McCartney)
45 single bw Hey Jude: Capitol Records Canada Mono - 2276
Liverpool UK
John Lennon: guitar, vocal, scream, handclaps
George Harrison: lead guitar, bg vocal
Paul McCartney: bass, Hammond organ, bg vocal
Ringo Starr: drums, handclaps
Nicky Hopkins: electric piano
Produced by George Martin 1968
Recorded at Abby Road Studios, London

Three versions of the song were recorded in 1968, all during sessions for the Beatles' self-titled double album, commonly known as "the White Album": a slow, bluesy arrangement (titled "Revolution 1") that would make the final cut for the LP; a more abstract musical collage (titled "Revolution 9") that originated as the latter part of "Revolution 1" and appears on the same album; and the better-known, faster, hard rock version similar to "Revolution 1", released as the B-side of the "Hey Jude" single. Although the single version was issued first, it was recorded several weeks after "Revolution 1", as a re-make specifically intended for release as a single.

Revolution" later appeared on the 1970 US compilation album Hey Jude, the first time the song was issued in stereo. Lennon disliked the stereo mix, saying in a 1974 interview that the mono mix of "Revolution" was a "heavy record" but "then they made it into a piece of ice cream!

L’etanger got together in 1980 and managed to release 3 Eps in the next 6 years. Who would have known at the time that two of these ‘Punks’ would become members of parliament? Charlie Angus and Andrew Cash managed that feat. Angus left the band in 1986 to begin putting a new band together, one that he would call The Grievous Angels while Andrew decided to put The Andrew Cash Band together.

5.   The Guess Who: Undun (Randy Bachman) 1969 *

Winnipeg MB
Randy Bachman: guitar
Burton Cummings: flute, piano intro, vocals
Garry Peterson: percussion
Jim Kale: bass
Produced by Jack Richardson 1969
Recorded by John Woram & Dick Baxter at RCAs Studio A, New York City

I once interviewed Randy Bachman and he told me that quite of few Guess Who songs he wrote were influenced, partly, by the guitar licks he learned from a very young Lenny Breau when he was living in Winnipeg in the 1950s. Undun is a perfect example of that. Canned Wheat was really the first Guess Who album to bring the band into their big hit era. It was also the second album they released in 1969, the other being Wheatfield Soul which was their first full album release featuring the vocals of Burton Cummings.

The two had originally begun working together as professional musicians in 1963 and had been managed for a short time by future True North Records founder, Bernie Finkelstein. Ryan and Yeomans, originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, had been in an early Canadian garage band, The Amen, with drummer Bucky Berger.

Jackson Hawke's first single, released in 1976, was a double-sided hit called "You Can't Dance" backed with a version of Van Morrison's "Into The Mystic". The band's 1977 single, "Set Me Free", peaked at number 54 in Canada, and went to number 11 on the CHUM Chart in Toronto.

I’ve known Robert for decades but I only recently found this EP in a second hand record shop. There is an address on the cover for the Robert Priest Fan Club! He lived at Toronto’s Bain Apts Co-op (where I reside) for a good long time and I knew nothing about his fan club!

This is the track on this vibrant album that was produced by Ed Stasium with Mick Jagger’s assistance. (The album won a Grammy and went double Platinum). It was Jagger who rescued the band from oblivian. They had a difficult time securing a major record deal, coz they were black, heavy-metal artists until Jagger took them under their wing and saw them signed to CBS. Since Vernon Reid was originally from the UK, they decided to use the British spelling for their name.

Keith Richards stated in a 1971 interview: "I never dug it as a record. The chorus was a nice idea, but we rushed it as the follow-up. We were in L.A. Los Angeles, where "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" was recorded, and it was time for another single. But how do you follow-up "Satisfaction"? Actually, what I wanted was to do it slow, like a Lee Dorsey thing. We rocked it up. I thought it was one of Andrew Loog Oldham's worst productions."

This is the soundtrack to the Pistols’ film Rock ‘N’ Roll Swindlewhich was released after John Lyndon (Rotten) had left the Pistols. They used his vocals from a 1976 demo and re-recorded the music tracks. So why did they choose to play a Monkee’s song?
