This Birchmount (a subsidiary of Quality Records Ltd.) compilation LP features six artists from Thunder Bay, Ontario's Gaiety Records, including Tomorrow's Keepsake and The Plague,
Love & Obey" by The Plague is a British Invasion-inspired garage rock number complete with organ and a stinging guitar solo, while Sandi Shore's "Like A Madness" (my favourite song here) is more like Petula Clark-style pop.
"My Love Stood By Me," by Duncan & Fife (actually American expats Gib Guilbeau and Darrell Cotton recording under a pseudonym), is
Duncan And Fife
My Love Stood By Me / Winds Of Yesterday From the archives of Canadian producer extraordinaire Don Grashey! Beautiful folk-psych from Gib Guilbeau (Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers) and friends, formerly known as The Dudes. Much in demand in collector circles.
Don Grashey, the Canadian Ed Cobb (Standells, Chocolate Watch Band, etc.), not only produced the cream of the mid-sixties crop of Canadian garage, punk, psych and pop artists (The Plague, 49th Parallel, Checkerlads, White Knights, Dewline, Lexington Avenue - who became Jarvis Street Review - , Tomorrow's Keepsake, Jerry Palmer, NRG, Merriday Park, Portland Street South, Souls of Inspyration, Lyn McEachern, to name a few),
he also discovered top international country singers Loretta Lynn, Myrna Lorrie and Carroll Baker. He also ran several of his own labels including Zero, Gaiety and Golden Eagle, as well as leasing masters to everyone from Abbott to Venture, including majors like RCA Victor, Sparton, etc. Not too bad!
And "So Much In Love With You" by Regina, Saskatchewan's The Checkerlads (Robert Frei -guitar, b/g vocals, Harvey Franz - drums, Arnold Rippliner - lead vocals, bass, rhythm guitar, Robert Bucholtz - organ, b/g vocals) is a nicely-sung, poppy, melodic rock number
