Information/Write-up

This Montreal-based act established a firm reputation in the early 1960's in the local club scene playing Beatles cover tunes before The Beatles broke in North America because Nichols' aunt lived in England and sent him all the latest releases. By 1965 they had been signed to RCA Records and released the song "Don't Ask Me To Be True". A string of successful singles followed on the charts through the spring of 1965 after which the band headed into RCA Studios to record the remaining tracks for their self-titled debut LP which was released in the summer of 1965. During that same summer they starred in the movie US Movies Inc. production of Maxwell Sendel's 'Playgirl Killer'. With a May 1966 switch in name to The Jaybees and a move to Toronto, they continued with a string of successful singles including "I'm A Loner" peaking at #25 in August 1966.
