    That's OK, I wanna see the '60s footage. Yeah, the Mynah Birds: a Sly-ish funk band with Rick James and Neil Young! They got signed to Motown (!) but James (aka James Ambrose Johnson, from Buffalo, NY) was AWOL and got busted before they could do an album. Hopefully the tapes will come out in Young's archive series. Thx for taping this! I'll hook you up.

    Update:

    EMI Music Canada will release a DVD and companion CD
    based on "Shakin' All Over," the two-hour documentary
    about Canadian pop music in the '60s that airs tonight
    (Jan. 30) on CBC Television at 8 p.m. ET.

    Sales will benefit the charity MusicCan, a national
    music education program implemented by the Canadian
    Academy Of Recording Arts & Sciences.

    "It's going to have a life beyond the TV special,"
    says noted Toronto music journalist Nicholas Jennings,
    who wrote the book "Before the Gold Rush -- Flashbacks
    To The Dawn Of The Canadian Sound" (Penguin Books), on
    which the film is based, and served as the writer and
    associate producer of "Shakin' All Over."

    Details have yet to be worked out with EMI such as
    track listing and additional content, but Jennings
    says the DVD and CD should be out this year, "maybe
    the spring, maybe the summer."

    Jennings, the former music critic for Maclean's
    magazine and current music editor for Inside
    Entertainment, conducted more than 60 interviews for
    the documentary and licensed as many songs.

    He was also able to dig up such rare clips as David
    Clayton Thomas & The Shays on NBC's "Hullabaloo,"
    Halifax garage band The Great Scots on "American
    Bandstand," Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Young and Joni
    Mitchell in separate performances on BBC's "In
    Concert," Murray McLauchlan at the Riverboat club,
    Bruce Cockburn on CBC's "Rock II," and Steppenwolf on
    "The Ed Sullivan Show."

    "There's tons more that we edited for the TV show,"
    says Jennings. "Would EMI want the DVD to feature full
    performances? I guess it all comes down to budget."

    Many of those finer points "Shakin' All Over" producer
    Pierre Touchette of Montreal-based Amerimage-Spectra
    will be working out with EMI, namely vice-president of
    marketing Rob Brooks and director of catalogue
    marketing Warren Stewart. Jennings expects to have
    input as well.

    Jennings has an existing relationship with EMI Music
    Canada stemming back to the late '90s when label
    president Deane Cameron hired him to write the
    company's anniversary tome, "EMI Music Canada -- Fifty
    Years Of Music 1949 to 1999" (Macmillan Canada), which
    came out in 2000.

    "Deane is a fan of 'Before The Gold Rush.' That's why
    he commissioned me to do the EMI history book, but
    beyond that, he also cares passionately about Canadian
    music history," says Jennings. "I really respect Deane
    because he has been a huge champion of Canadian music
    and heritage."

    Both books are now out of print.

    However, Jennings is hoping that "Before The Gold
    Rush," which came out in hard cover in 1997 and
    paperback in 1998, will get back into circulation. "A
    lot of people love the book and want it to be back in
    print. I was very lucky that it got into a lot of
    libraries before it went out of print. It's just a
    matter of do I find another publisher or do I publish
    it myself?" he says.

    The idea for "Before The Gold Rush," -- initially
    titled "Yorkville Daze" which was deemed "too
    Toronto-centric" by Penguin, according to Jennings --
    came to him in 1996 after he interviewed the five
    music veterans inducted into the Juno Awards' Canadian
    Music Hall Of Fame that year and found a common thread
    of Yorkville.

    In separate interviews for his Maclean's magazine
    article, David Clayton-Thomas, Denny Doherty, John
    Kay, Domenic Troiano, Zal Yanovsky each brought up the
    Toronto district "as this looming presence" in their
    early careers.

    Jennings had his own history with Yorkville, having
    worked part-time at the Riverboat club in the '70s
    while he was a journalism student at Ryerson
    Polytechnical Institute, and witnessing show by the
    likes of Dan Hill, Colin Linden, Cockburn, Lightfoot,
    and McLauchlan.

    He decided to write a book on the Yorkville and Yonge
    Street scenes before anyone else did.

    "I tried convince my publisher, Penguin Books, back
    when the book was published that people would love a
    CD too, but Penguin couldn't envision it; they
    couldn't see a way to make that happen," says
    Jennings. "I tried to involve some record labels and
    some people in the industry were very excited about
    the idea, but it never came to fruition."

    From the time the book was published in 1997, Jennings
    was approached by many film and television producers
    to turn the book into a documentary or even a series.
    "None of those approaches led to anything because none
    of those producers could get the financing or a
    broadcast commitment," Jennings says.

    That changed in 2001 when he was approached by
    Touchette, who worked for the TV production side of
    Amerimage-Spectra. Among its many entertainment
    ventures, the company has recorded performances at the
    Montreal International Jazz Festival, and more
    recently produced DVDs such as "Diana Krall - Live at
    the Montreal Jazz Festival" and "Creating The Lord of
    the Rings Symphony."

    "He optioned the book and hired me to write the
    documentary," says Jennings.

    Joining Touchette were producers Nick Orchard and
    Randolph Eustace-Walden and executive producer Luc
    Chatelain. The project also became a co-production
    between Amerimage-Spectra and Vancouver's Soapbox
    Productions. And Gary McGroarty (2000's documentary
    "Stand Up And Be Counted") was brought in as the
    director.

    "Gary completely shared my passion for getting as much
    Canadian music from the '60s on the screen," says
    Jennings.

    Touchette got a broadcast commitment from CBC
    Television and he and McGroarty were given access to
    the broadcaster's massive archives.

    Initially, Jennings says CBC wanted the film to focus
    on who he calls the "Mount Rushmore of Canadian music"
    -- Young, Mitchell, Lightfoot and Cohen.

    "That's not really doing justice to the '60s and the
    wealth of music that this country produced, so we dug
    our heels in and started going into the archives,"
    says Jennings. "There's not a lot of great material
    left from the '60s and most of what does exist resides
    in the CBC archives."

    More than half the footage in "Shakin' All Over" is
    from the CBC.

    With the mass of material they had assembled of
    Canadian music from the '60s, Jennings began talking
    with Ross Reynolds at CARAS, the organization that
    presents the Juno Awards, and with Graham Henderson of
    the Canadian Recordings Industry Association (CRIA)
    which represents the companies that create,
    manufacture and market sound recordings.

    "CARAS was immediately interested because they are
    developing the Juno Hall Of Fame, and CARAS and CRIA
    both wanted to find a way to see this TV special made
    into a DVD," relays Jennings. "It's a challenge, of
    course, because the licensing of songs is incredibly
    expensive and this show has 60 of them, so CARAS
    wanted to play a role in this and it will wind up
    being a charitable project along the lines of a "Oh
    What A Feeling,'" he says, referring to the 1996 and
    2001 box sets produced by CARAS to celebrate the 25th
    and 30th anniversary of the Juno Awards.

    "The CARAS charity is (for) music in the schools which
    I'm very pleased about because I really see this
    documentary has a real educational role to play. It
    has that kind of value," says Jennings.

    "Shakin' All Over" is the first of a planned
    three-part series Jennings is making with McGroarty on
    the history of Canadian pop music, tentatively titled
    "Maple Music."

    "The format that was used for 'Shakin' All Over' will
    carry the series through," says Jennings. "The next
    part will begin in the early '70s and bring us up to
    the birth of music television in the mid '80s and the
    third will be the mid '80s to present."

    CBC has been offered the entire series.

    Jennings is also developing two television performance
    specials on Canadian Celtic music acts Leahy and
    Natalie MacMaster. "Gary and I are the creative
    producers and Amerimage-Spectra will be the producer,"
    he says.
