Originally called “Games For May”, this was Floyd’s second single which reached number 6 on the British pop charts. It has been recorded by Grapes of Wrath, Martha Wainwright, Judy Dyble to name a few. It was apparently written with a young fan of the band in mind: Emily Young.

The song was written for the 1964 MGM film, The Americanization of Emily, starring Julie Andrews and James Garner, was recorded by Frank Sinatra with Nelson Riddle arranging and conducting on October 3, 1964. The song later became a jazz standard whether played instrumentally or with a singer. It’s been recorded by Tony Bennett, Barbara Streisand, Andy Williams and tons of others.

Paul Simon: 12 string guitar
Art Garfunkel: vocal
Produced by Bob Johnston, 1966
Recorded by Roy Halee, Aug 22, 1966

"For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her" has sometimes been thought to be named after poet Emily Dickinson, who is referenced in another song on the record, "The Dangling Conversation." In 2014, a Rolling Stone readers poll ranked it among the duo's best compositions, with the magazine declaring, "Over the years, fans have recognized it as one of the duo's sweetest love songs." It’s been recorded by Glen Yardbrough, Johnny Rivers, Ricky Nelson, Cliff Richard and David Essex.

Auburn, Maine / Nashville
Lenny Breau: lead guitar
Richard Cotton: bass guitar

In Between: Featuring Gord Sinclair & Rob Baker: indie
Kingston ON
Miss Emily: vocal
Gord Sinclair: bass

Rob Radford: drums
Kelly Prescott: bg vocals
Produced by Gord Sinclair, 2017

Miss Emily aka Emily Fennell, started performing in Prince Edward County in Suzanne Pasternak’s folk opera, Minerva. The 12 year old singer played to role of the youngster, Minerva, and eventually grew into the role of adult Minerva. Her voice was powerful, even then! It was always her aim to be a musician and this lead her into the blues. Her latest album (which she says she hopes to release on vinyl one day) was co-written and produced by two members of Tragically Hip.

7.   John Cale: Emily (John Cale)
Fear: Island Records ILPS 9301
Garnant, Wales
John Cale: keys, bass, vocals
Brian Eno: synth sounds

Produced by The Zombies, 1968
Recorded at Abbey Road and Olympic Studios, London by Geoff Emerick and Peter Vince June 1 to July 10, 1967.

Based on a short story by American author William Faulkner, pubished in 1930, A Rose For Emily retells the story about living and dying alone, unloved. Interestingly, it parallels Eleanor Rigby in many ways.

9.   Stompin’ Tom Connors: Emily The Maple Leaf (TC Connors)
The Northlands’ Own: Dominion Records LPS 21006
Halton Hills, ON
Stompin’ Tom Connors: guitar, vocal
Produced by Dr. Tom Connors, 1968

This was the second version of Tom’s first album. The first had been issued as The Northlands’ Own Tom Connors (not quite Stompin’ yet!) on Rebel Records. The original producer, John Irvine, butchered it up by trying to add electric bass to the songs himself (although he couldn’t play the instrument!). When Tom regained the rights to the album, the original Rebel recording master couldn’t be found (conviently for Irvine) so Tom had to re-record the entire album again for Dominion. It has since been reissued on Boot, A-C-T and  Capitol Records but mistakenly called Northlands Zone. Apparently, Tom wasn’t too happy about it being mis-used.

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, the 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. Was a favourite of ex-CIUT programmer Rohinton Medhora.
