This upload was 3rd in the #classic rock chart and 10th in the #rock chart.

Welcome to an evening of dusty garage-rock vinyl rarities, in which all of the music has one thing in common: each song was recorded by Canadian bands! In the 60s, Canada had a flourishing and thriving garage-rock scene which seriously rivalled that of the USA and the UK, so in this episode we present: All-Canadian Mind Garage 3, a collection of pre-psychedelic Canadian Content. Tonight you’re in for a treat, Canuck-style, with teen angst and fuzz tones set on stun — all from a Canadian perspective! Featured contributors include the Ugly Ducklings, The Seeds of Time, The Northwest Company, Sparkling Apple, David Clayton Thomas & The Bossmen, Luke & the Apostles, and even Chad Allan & the Expressions. Shake Yourself Down!

There used to be a series of vinyl records (sadly never re-issued on CD), called "Highs In The Mid-60's." It covered Garage Punk/Psych of the 60's, but regionally: each album had the groups grouped by place. There were volumes on Texas, L.A., Ohio, Chicago, "The South," even Colorado. But never Canada! So, this show was like the missing piece, wonderful stuff, thank you! :) As far as "The Heart" go... that other group, Heart, used to claim they were from Vancouver, even though they were really from Seattle... cos they knew Vancouver was cooler. Rock On, Captain...

The Captain Maniac Show

Hi Johnny, and thanks for tuning in! Yeah, Heart (the Seattle group) played pretty much the same bar circuit as we did back in the 70s, and they even played at my brother's stag party back in 1974 (OK, we had the party at the same bar where Heart was playing). They moved up to Vancouver because Ann Wilson had a relationship with a guy who lived up here.
