Another band from Sault Ste Marie are the (Those) Rogues, who have a fine and rare double-sider on Algoma. Terry Davey left the group sometime before they recorded their 45. In 1963 or '64, the group recorded a whole LP worth of songs in John Holt's basement. John Holt had about 10 acetate copies without covers made from the tape, some of which were used for promotion. Any copies John Holt had of this were lost in a house fire, and both Bryan and Terry have lost their copies. Does anyone have this lost artifact of Sault rock n' roll? The single was recorded at Arc Studios in Toronto on February 26, 1967, with Marshall Shapiro engineering the session. The label lists the address as Case Road. As with the Amen's 45 the producer is John Holt, but no songwriting credits are listed. As Bryan's son Joel mentions, his father was the songwriter for the group for the 45. At this point the band was regularly playing at the Sundown Room, though I'm not sure if that was in Sault Ste Marie or elsewhere in Ontario. Bryan describes the feeling of playing in front of an audience, "It's like going to an LSD party, without the LSD"!
