One hit wonders! After recording Little Girl for a small regional label, Hush Records, Bell Records picked up the song and it reached the Billboard top ten. Because of that, Bell Records offered them an album deal. The album was recorded in three weeks and the band then embarked on a nationwide tour supporting among others, Paul Revere & the Raiders, the Young Rascals, and The Yardbirds.

Wednesday was formed in Oshawa in 1971 by high school mates Mike O'Neil and Paul Andrew Smith. They originally played the Ontario circuit playing covers of contemporary hits and 1950's standards. By the time they'd honed their live chops in 1973 they had remade the Wayne Cochran song "Last Kiss". This time Driscoll hand delivered the single to radio stations where CFTR-AM played it immediately and indefinitely. 1050 CHUM-AM jumped on the track and the song went to No.2, giving way to an avalanche of Canadian radio support.

This buzz spilled over into the US market and the record made Billboard's 'Hot 100'. The song would go on to sell well over 200,000 copies. The band was awarded a 'RPM Maple Leaf Award' for outstanding sales (1973), and were nominated for several Junos as well.  "Fly Away" made it to a respectable No. 21 on the charts.

He’s just sent me promo material for his latest project, an album recorded with his wife, Marla. While it’s going to be released in August, the LPs won’t be ready until the fall.

Paul Whaley: drums
Leigh Stephens: guitar
Dickie Peterson: vocals, bass
Produced by Abe Kesh (Eric Albronda), 1968
Recorded by John MacQuarrie at Amigo Studios, Hollywood, 1967

Known as ‘The Loudest Band In The World’. "Blue Cheer" was the name of a variety of LSD made by chemist and Grateful Dead patron Owsley Stanley although the name existed earlier, as the name of a well known laundry detergent. Drummer Whaley was the band’s drummer from 1967 when it was reduced from a 5 man band to a power trio. Summertime Blues was their only charted song. Rumor has it that they were so lound, they were forced to record outdoors. The band had a fortress of amps that could turn the air into cottage cheese! Some reports claimed that while recording their second album, outdoors on San Francisco’s pier 57, they were so loud that people on boats 14 kms away were complaining about the sound.
