The Canadian version of the band with the name "Nomads" were from Edmonton, Alberta. They were a rock and roll band who formed around 1964 and had some regional success. They released this, their only LP, in 1968 on Point Records P-333, a Damon Records Production. The album followed four 45's, which were all released in 1967: Cry Baby b/w By Myself on Damon Records D-001; Dizzy Miss Lizzy b/w Walkin' Mary Home on Damon Records D-002; Bittersweet b/w Come On Now on Damon Records D-003; Hey Joe b/w The Letter on Damon Records D-004.
They were known as Lenny Richards and the Nomads and also released a 45 promotional picture sleeve for the Pepsi-Cola lemon-lime soft drink "Teem Twist", along with "Frankie Lee and the Fantasies" and "Mr 5 by 5", in 1965 on Startime MG-1145 (Teem Twist No. 1/ Peppermint Twist/ Teem Twist No. 2/ Slow Twistin').
Most of the album tracks are cover tunes, but three were written by members of the band. "By Myself" was written by Lennie Richards; "Cry Baby" and "Bittersweet" were written by Garry McDonnall. "Cry Baby" had some regional radio airplay success, specifically CJCA, in Edmonton, Alberta. Garry McDonnall and the Nomads still perform at the Sidetrack Cafe in Edmonton. They released a CD of 1960's rock n roll entitled "The Grey Album" in 1997.
