Union City, Indiana
Rick Zehringer: guitar
Randy Zehringer: drums
Randy Jo Hobbs: bass
Robby Peterson: keys
Produced by Feldman, Goldstein & Gottahrer: 1965

Originally called Rick and the Raiders, these guys got their name from the B side of a Ventures single Walk, Donít Run that was called The McCoy. They had three major hit songs: Hang On Sloopy, Fever, and Come On Letís Go. Three members of the band backed Johnny Winter for a few years, beginning in 1970. (Rick Zehringer changed his name to Derringer).

2.   The Rolling Stones: Time Is On My Side (Jerry Ragovoy  aka Norman Meade)

Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham, 1964
Recorded at Chess Studios,  Chicago on November 8, 1964
Compilation Album produced, 1966

First recorded by jazz trombonist Kai Winding and his Orchestra in 1963, it was covered (with additional lyrics by Jimmy Norman) by both soul singer Irma Thomas and the Rolling Stones in 1964. The Stones recorded it twice: the British release was recorded in the UK June 1964 featuring an organ intro. This version was recorded when the Stones were in Chicago, at Chess Studios in November, 1964. This was one of two songs The Stones performed on their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance, October 25, 1964. The other was "Around And Around," a Chuck Berry cover.

3.   Rick & The Romans: Iím Alive (Clint Ballard Jr)
Rock & Roll comes to Newfoundland & Labrador: Three Blind Mice Music: no serial
Conception Bay NL
Rick Parsons: vocal
Leo Morrissey
Roy Hender
Dave Hillier
Produced 1966
Reproduced by Wayne Sturge: 2007
Originally released on 45 Independent ST 61 bw Greenfields

Rick & The Romans, who had been playing on the Newfoundland music scene for some time, decided that it was time to make a record. The problem was that they were low on financial resources. So what they did was pack up their van and head to Ontario where they found jobs picking tobacco, eventually arriving at Arc Records Studio where they realized they only had enough money for two hours of recording time. They only managed to get these two songs down on tape before time ran out.

4.   Iron Butterfly: Most Anything You Want (Doug Ingle)

Recorded at Gold Star Studios, Hollywood & Ultra-Sonic Studios, Hempstead UK
Recorded by Don Casale and Mixed by Bill Cooper
Released June 14, 1968

The band formed in 1966 and had an unstable line-up until the release of this, their second LP in í68. The success of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (selling over 30 million copies) meant better gigs, more touring. The band had been booked to play at Woodstock in August 1969, but got stuck at LaGuardia Airport. Their subsequent recordings tried to capitalize on the success of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida and although Ball, their 3rd album did rather well, they never got back to the garden. After being hit for not paying their taxes, the band decided to call it a day in 1971.

Songs in the Key of Life is the eighteenth album by Stevie Wonder. The double album became the best-selling and most critically acclaimed album of Wonder's career. In 2005, it was inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress, which deemed it "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

The Four Deuces were an American rhythm and blues vocal quartet, formed in the mid-1950s in Salinas, California. The band was started by lead singer Luther McDaniel, and recorded several songs before they broke up in 1959. While active, the Four Deuces had moderate but short-lived popularity in 1956, mainly along the West Coast, mostly due to the frequent radio airplay of their hit song, "W-P-L-J." which obviously hit the ears of a young Francis Vincent Zappa. Zappa has conceded, admiringly, that he could not have written a song any more absurd. They only released three singles before disbanding.

Recorded at Round Sound, Edmonton by Ted Richards

Starting out in Edmonton when they were teens in the early 60s, calling themselves The Ortegas and then The Royal Family, cutting a couple of singles in 1965, the band continually tried to re-invent themselves. They were one of the first Alberta bands to play Acid-Rock which meant no time for pop singles. Looking for a new name, they moved to Montreal in 1967 and called themselves Troyka (a three-wheeled horse carriage) since all three members had a Slavic heritage. After this album was released, they toured relentlessly through the States, opening for The Byrds, Blue Cheer, Savoy Brown, Canned Heat and Mountain. Their last show was at The Electric Circus in Toronto, 1970.

4.   Hank Davis: One Way Track (H. Davis)
Single: STACY 919X
Dry Heave AK / Montreal QC
Hank Davis: vocal, guitar
Produced 1960

Born and raised in the heart of Arkansas in a place where confederate money was used until the 1950s. In early 1955 Elvis Presley played the Dixie Bar 'n' Grill in Dry Heave and Hank Davis was in the audience. He noticed that the girls went crazy for Elvis and he decided to become a rock & roll star that evening. In 1956 Hank and his group went to Memphis and auditioned for Sun Records. After nearly two years they had heard nothing so they called the studio and were told, "I think we lost the tape." Later that night, Hank was so dispirited that he resolved to get a bus back to Dry Heave and work in his father's store. He got drunk near the bus terminal, however, and boarded a bus to Canada by mistake. He arrived hungover in Montreal the next day with no money for the return fare. He still had his guitar, however, and he got a Job playing at a local club, Le Mangeur de Merde (The Shit Eater).

Hank soon decided to make his home in Canada. His wild pulsating brand of rockabilly was an instant success. In 1963, while playing the Dead Moose Bar in Northern Ontario, they were spotted by Ed Sullivan who booked Hank for three appearances on his TV show. Unfortunately, a heavy snow fall and lack of gas money delayed to boys' arrival in New York by two months and an English group had taken Hank's bookings. The group was the Beatles and Hank had crossed paths with the famous once again. The Beatles were always grateful for this lucky break. "if Hank Davis hadn't got stuck in the snow," recalled John Lennon, "we would never have made it in the States."

Originally recorded for The Wizard of Oz on October 7, 1938, the song was re-recorded for commercial release in September, 1939 after the release of the film. The original movie soundtrack was not released until 1956 to coincide with the television premiere of The Wizard of Oz.

Judy Garland began performing on the Vaudeville circuit with her two siblings as The Gumm Sisters but suffering  jokes of their name they changed it to the Garland Sisters in 1934. Judy was selected in a 1935 audition with MGM for a screen test which eventually lead her to the lead roll in The Wizard of Oz.

Produced by David Briggs, 1970
Recorded at Sunwest Studios, Hkollywood CA by Barry Keene

Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier; February 4, 1948, Detroit Michigan)

Alice Cooper formed in Phoenix back in 1964 when they called themselves The Spiders which they changed to Nazz after moving to Los Angeles. Because Todd Rundgrenís band was already called the Nazz, they had to change their name once again. They chose the name "Alice Cooper" largely because it sounded innocuous and wholesome, in humorous contrast to the band's image and music. Later, for legal ownership reasons, Furnier officially changed his name to Alice Cooper, a move he now claims was the best one he ever made.
From the bandís second album, associated with Frank Zappaís Straight Records. This was during the bandís psychedelic phase. The band later claimed that this period was highly influenced by Pink Floyd, and especially the album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Glen Buxton said he could listen to Syd Barrett's guitar for hours at a time

The original Fentons band formed in Ottawa in 1984 and disbanded in 1990. About Paul Fentonís slide guitar playing: ďMan, this guy is a red hot slide player!Ē claimed Johnny Winter. Some of Paulís favourite slide players are (in no particular order): Tampa Red, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Rory Gallagher , Duane Allman , Johnny Winter, Elmore James, Brian Jones and David Gilmour from Pink Floyd. He formed a punk band called The Action in Ottawa which were notorious for being extremely loud. He also played in the Blushing Brides for a while before forming the Fentons.

The Fentons went down to the US to record another album with producer Mick Ronson and engineered by Todd Rungren but their recording company, Torrid Records, went bankrupt and the master tape went missing, thus never released.
