Five Man Electrical Band, one of the more creative Canadian groups of the early '70s, edged toward the American "big time" without ever really receiving their due. Springing from the accomplished harmonies of all five bandmembers and leader Les Emerson's socially attuned penmanship, the band was equally at home firing off catchy pop hits ("Signs," "Absolutely Right")

Overview

Five Man Electrical Band, one of the more creative Canadian groups of the early '70s, edged toward the American "big time" without ever really receiving their due. Springing from the accomplished harmonies of all five bandmembers and leader Les Emerson's socially attuned penmanship, the band was equally at home firing off catchy pop hits ("Signs," "Absolutely Right") as it was with more ambitious, roots rock-grounded album material ("Coming of Age," "Country Girl Suite"). The 14-track collection The Best of Five Man Electrical Band does justice to both sides, and how these merged to culminate in the environmental polemic sweep of "I'm a Stranger Here" and decidedly odd chart fodder "Werewolf."

Hi my name is Bruce Ellison, I was the recording Engineer for the Five Man. The guys were way ahead of there time, great musicians and great friends. This was done during the Golden times of recording. We did it at Golden West Sound and the 3rd street Studios (liberty). We also worked on some other cuts at Sound City in the Valley. The producer was Dallas Smith, Dallas if you see this get in touch with me, its been a long time. Dallas and I did hundreds of sessions together.Les Emerson was the lead singer for the five man and they are still playing, keep it up guys.www.fivemanelectricalband.ca www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1Q7cP3ij5g www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qxa_I_GGe8k Hay ....
