    zzyzx by alphadiabetic - instrumental rock. I discovered this when a few tracks were free downloads on Amazon. I know nothing about the band. Unfortunately, the music is only available as a download from multiple sites or as a CDR from Amazon

    Yr by Steve Tibbets - discovered this in 83 when it was playing in a record store while I was shopping. Bought it before leaving.

    This album from 1980 on Rocket Records by Johnny Warman, featuring a line-up of Johnny, Jerry Marotta, Tony Levin, Larry Fast, Dave Lawson, and pg guesting on one track. One of the best Hugh Padgham productions you've never heard, fabulous music but hard to categorise. Everyone I have played this to has loved it.
    I opted for this title because it came first, but in the words of Yoda, 'There is another'.

    Good album, though it doesn't quite capture what a great live band they were, sheesh I saw them so many times. Definitely one of my fave Toronto bands from that era, bought the cd of this last year!

    I really love the Bees (a.k.a. A Band of Bees), but they don't seem to have made much of a commercial impact at least here in the States. I guess you could say that they have sort of a retro 60's sound, but they combine a diverse range of different influences in a really fresh way: psychedelia, soul, ska, blues, Brazillian music, folk, etc. They have a great organ driven sound that's complimented by lots of inventive instrumental flourishes. Free The Bees and Octopus are both brilliant.

    I have both of those on vinyl and really like them. Really nice sounding lp's, too!

    good grief, there's some great stuff in this post I have never heard about before. The few samples I was searching for in youtube already made me a happy man :D

    thanks!!

    Was listening to Antidote by Jenny Toomey today and thought of this thread. Not a single dud on the album. Beautifully written, played and recorded.
