Adam Timoon is a nightclub entertainer whose act consists of equal parts music and comedy, but he's an extremely accomplished guitarist who can sing a lick, too. These days he plays retirement homes and corporate events, but way back when he was a regular on Cross Canada Hit Parade, and for many years he headlined the Seaway Hotel in Toronto, where the Las Vegas Room was renamed "Adam's Inn". That's about all I have in terms of biographical information on Timoon, although I can add that he was married to a woman named Carol who co-wrote some of his songs.

Adam Timoon Live! was recorded in 1971 at Sound Canada Recording Centre, and produced by Timoon and Art Snider, with engineer Ernie Lyons. The fact that it was apparently recorded in a studio makes me wonder if it was a fake live album. At any rate, Timoon shows off his guitar chops on the well-known instrumentals "Flight of the Bumblebee" and "Malaguena". "Me and Bobby McGee" is, of course, a cover of the Kris Kristofferson tune popularized by Janis Joplin, which really builds up a full head of steam towards the end when the crowd joins in on the chorus. And "The Cars" is a comedy number with a laid-back rockabilly groove and lyrics modified to match a couple of audience members.
