    I love me two Collectors albums... some of the greatest psych-prog out of Canada... and right up there with the best

    And yes, they evolved into Chilliwack with their first two albums (you can delve safely in their second album) that were highly enjoyable psych with some amerindian touches at times

    Unfortunately, by their third album, they'd all changed it to become a late 70's AOR band.

    Having grown up just south of the border, we listened to Canuck radio all the time and I'm quite familiar with Streetheart, Chilliwack, etc. Even the Stampeders.

    Loverboy's debut was decent but the decline was steep. I do remember the video for "Notorious" being the rage late night on MTV because it was nothing but one stunning and scantily clad woman after another. It made J Geils "Centerfold" seem tame. All you can find on YT now is a sanitized version.

    I had to look it up. Chilliwack. Always thought that was one of the weirdest names for a band.

    Chilliwack being a Salish term meaning "valley of many streams" and the name of a city east of Vancouver in the Fraser River valley.

    Now I get it but it's still weird. Learn something new every day, eh? Didn't like the song posted very much but I'm a dick so whatever.

    Here's yet another Canadian trio that's more obscure, but they're still out there. Think of a wacky version of Triumph fronted by an Elton John cosplayer.

    only their debut is worthy of interest (pretty heavy, I think)

    One favorite Canadian band is called Exciter. It's 80s speed metal.

    You're thinking of Annihilator. First three albums are great!

    They were previously called Hellrazor, right? Either way, check out Annihilator!

    Anyone remember Fludd -"What An Animal"? Also a couple of very good Canuckster 90s bands: Moist, and The Tea Party. TTP were terrific live as well.

    Fludd was the pre-Saga band of Jim Crichton, Steve Negus and Peter Rochon (the guy responsible for that legendary Moog solo on "Humble Stance").

    I used to love Chiliwack's "My Girl." Such a great pop song.

    Sort of one-upsmanship of Chicago, since they had a string section in addition to the brass. I like that song too. I have the Good Day album, too, which is cool. A little more string-heavy, in that the brass section was much reduced (just sax/flute and trombone), giving the strings more space to shine.

    Yeah, I might've said BS&T instead

    Loverboy ~ Notorious

    WildsideLB.jpg

    Nobody mentioned this one!

    Wildside is an album released in September 1987 by the Canadian rock band Loverboy. This was the first album that the band had released that did not go platinum, signaling a significant decline in the band's popularity.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wildside_(album)


    (co-written by John Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora)


    Hey, hey, hey

    Well there's a lone wolf out on the prowl tonight
    Lurkin' in the shadows, always out of sight

    I said, little girl, don't you hesitate, cause you're usin' live bait
    Senorita, solitaire, you got a certain kind of savoir-faire

    Cause you're notorious (notorious), everything you want
    Everything you need
    Cause you're notorious (notorious), every mother's nightmare
    Every schoolboy's dream

    Everybody by name, every trick in the book
    Everywhere that she goes she gets those dirty looks

    I said, little girl, don't you hesitate, cause you're usin' live bait
    Senorita, solitaire, you got a certain kind of savoir-faire

    Cause you're notorious (notorious), everything you want
    Everything you need
    Cause you're notorious (notorious), every mother's nightmare
    Every schoolboy's dream

    Lock me up, I want to be your prisoner
    Lock me up, I want to be your slave

    I remember back in the day that much was made about Paul Dean being 36 when he made the big time. He must be well into his 70s now.
    I played in cover bands from 1981 until 1985 and I played many a song by them and they always went over well.
    Pretty stupid lyrics for the most part though. I liked their overall sound. The drummer really stood out.

    He's 73, according to Wikipedia.

    Andy Summers was something like 40 when the first Police album came out. I remember reading that in the liner notes of the Message In A Bottle box (which I only got like last year, I think) and being taken aback by that fact,, but once I thought about it, it made sense, given the career he had in the 60's, there's no way he could have been 20 years old or whatever "rock stars" are supposed to be. I guess it just surprised because he certainly didn't look like he was in his mid 40's at the time.
