Recorded live Fall, 1970

I’m my opinion there is one person that I think has been sadly overlooked in the music scene over the years, as far as recognition goes.
That person is Ray O’Toole.
Ray was one of the founding members of The Northwest Company band. He was also a huge part of the success of Blue Northern, another successful band.
Ray is a fantastic songwriter/vocalist and a phenomenal guitarist.
I know one thing for sure the Nothwest Company would not have had the success it did in the early days without Ray’s super guitar playing, songwriting and vocals.
A couple of years ago I released a double cd of a live concert The Northwest Company recorded at a high school dance.
Ray’s talent really shines
He was so wicked on the guitar jams ( some 15-20 minutes long)
Always coming up with fresh ideas and never running out of guitar licks.
I think he was at a peak in heavy duty guitar playing in those days.
I’m not sure, but I think he was playing a Gibson SG. I know he was using a 100 watt Garnet BTO amplifier with 2 12” or 15” speakers
Garnet had given the band all new equipment. What a truly great guitar sound!!!!
We were a powerful trio in those days
The pinnacle of the heavy rock days.
Ray O’Toole has played in many bands around Vancouver since the 60’s and is still entertaining.
One of my favourite leads he played on a 45 record, is the lead on my first release on the Mushroom Record label
Chasing a Dream
I think his guitar work on that record shows the scope of his talent
Beautiful finesse and melody
