I used to run up and down Yorkville sticking my head into the clubs to catch glimpses of the bands. I wasn’t quite old enough to get in but, I loved the scene. I remember sticking my head into The Flick and seeing The Stitch In Tyme; they looked and sounded so good. Doing Beatle tunes, which I thought very classy, they had great vocals and a polished presence; to me, watching them was a real “big time” event.
The amazing vocals and carbon copy arrangement that we could all identify with (they even had the echo trick when the vocal hit “LIFE”), will remain in my music mind forever. Click (Flick?) and journey back to 1966 with me…
Personnel as determined: *John Yorke vocals; Grant Fullerton vocals, guitar; Bob Murphy vocals, keyboards; Donald Morris vocals, bass; Pinky Dauvin vocals, drums.
*Of special interest: Bruce Wheaton would replace John Yorke on vocals/guitar just after this record was made.
*I have absorbed, inhaled and envisioned every note of this music; this music which has allowed my musical candle to burn incessantly for decades; a musical candle causing a burn that feels so GOOD; a hurt allowing me to create until I can’t. I gratefully acknowledge my Canadiana musical roots with this blog.
