The Hi-Fives were a rip-your-ears-off garage rock blues group formed in Vancouver in 1961 and disbanded in 1966.-Members; Harry Walker (vocals), Tab Shori (lead guitar), Bill Papuc (bass), Larry Krachin (drums) and Freddy Carotenuto (saxophone).

the Hi-Fives released the ultra-rare "Mean Old Woman" on London 17200 in 1961. Earlier that same year they released another great garage rocker; "Fujikami The Warrior" on Hitt 003. Although both records have been released on various L.P. and C.D. compilations, the original 45's still appear on many collector's want list and are particularily difficult to find in M- condition as both 45's were great party records and usually played to death !--Mean Old Woman is a primitive rocker written by the boys in the band with a great saxophone solo from Freddy Carotenuto. Cold Wind is a blues number sung with a lot of soul by Harry Walker , there is an awesome sax solo from Freddy and bluesy guitar work from Tab Shori. A Knock-out package.
