In 1964 when acts like The Beatles
and The Rolling Stones
were invading North America from Britain, there was a similar but lesser known invasion happening in South America
but the bands were coming from... Canada
Groups like the Bay Street Strollers
, Nick and Friction
, and The Last Words
were big in countries like Ecuador, Peru, Brazil and Venezuela but there was no bigger Canadian group down there than Johnny & The Apologies.
The group has kindly re-issued two of their hits for the purposes of This Is That and we would like to offer them to you for free download
You can grab 'Aurora Borealis In Her Eyes' right here
and you can grab 'Mr. Prime Minister' right here.
Special thanks to Steve Bays for unearthing these gems and re-mastering them for this historic anniversary.
