If You Grew Up In Winnipeg in the 1960's......

If you grew up In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in the 1960's there was a sharp divide between the South End of town, and the infamous North End. And there were two high schools that represented each part of town, and there were two bands that played at the high school and community club dances. In the South End of town, there was Kelvin High School, and the famous band was Neil Young, and the Squires. And in the North End, it was Chad Allan and the Expressions. Joining them after some time was Burton Cummings, from the Devrons, and they became The Guess Who. And it all seemed to start with Shakin All Over.

In retrospect, it was the best of times. You could drop into the Fourth Dimension coffee house and see people like Gordon Lightfoot playing, or you could sneak into the jazz clubs underage and see Lenny Breau do his wizardry on guitar, but nobody cranked it out quite like Chad Allan, the Devrons, and Neil Young. It was a glorious time to be a teenager. And if my memory serves me wrong, and it could because it WAS the sixties, or if I've got some of my facts not quite straight, well then first my apologies in advance, but I'll never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Check this music out, and begin to understand. You'll not regret it.

Till We Kissed

the song 'Till We Kissed' is the 'B' side to the 45 'Shakin' All Over'. it is the best song ever released by the Guess Who. Why couldn't they record more songs like that? They ruined themselves like the Bee Gees did with disco.
