A lost 1974 Ron Bankley recording of Star Child by Ron. You got the blues in your soul my friend ... wonderful stuff.   I will be posting more on this thread over the next couple of weeks. For now have a listen to some French Canadian Blues by Ron from 1974

Ron Bankley - Star Child

That's some cool stuff. I would guess that it's the Ville Emard Blues Band, is it not?

actually from a band called 'Contraction' which had a recording deal with CBS in Montreal, releasing 2 studio LPs....
The band later formed a 'cell' within the Ville Emard adventure... we were one of the (if not the) 1st bands to record lyrics in French and English at a time when there was a lot of cultural and political change in Quebec..
this song was originally titled 'Le chat bruinne/ Star-child' written by Yves Laferrier, George Hebert Germain, and myself...

an interesting back story: from the liner notes on this recently released CD. "During the winter of 1974, CKVL-FM presented a progressive rock concert series entitled 'Performances' recorded live at Studio Tempo in Montreal. That night we shared the bill with British group Gentle Giant. It was a memorable evening. Due to technical problems having delayed the English group's concert, we only began to play at around 1:00 in the morning in an advanced state of fatigue.... So much so, that we forgot about the existence of this recording until we received a digital version of it courtesy of Quentin Meek and Susan Burns 35 years later"   

it was released this spring with Musique ProgresSon www.progquebec.com    10 songs, a mixture of the 2 studio LPs and some unreleased material..   and is called 'Contraction Live 1974'

funny thing, I still don't remember the show... fatigue and who knows what combustibles were on the menu that night....
but the concert was really good, still is after 35 yrs...

Just posted and it ain't here. Basically--in a nutshell--if what I have heard so far (unmixed, etc) is any indication, this new CD is gonna be the best you have ever done, buddy. You, like a fine spli/joi/roac/ wine get better with age. You be one of the most mellow people I ever met in my life. And you are one helluva songwriter, to say nothing of your guitar playing, depth and feel for the music.

Bruce

I appreciate it my friends, if I can keep developing over time, and getting better at all aspects of the craft while encouraging others to do the same, then I'm right with my life... so bless the music and the makers there-of....

which CD Peace ? I have 2 that'll be ready sometime this summer....
'Falling Forward' and also 'Thunder Thieves' with JT...
one compliments the other...

Next up is 'Infamous Duets'

thanks for posting these Dan... it's almost embarrassing, but enough time has passed and basically I'm glad that I did get to record what I wanted and have most of it released.... the rest just escaped...

the new 'Falling Forward' CD is finished with the mixing and mastering... plus JT's tracks should be here anyday now from Kentucky for the 'Thunder Thieves' project... I'll get that one wrapped up sometime next month as well...
and...'Infamous Duets' is in the works with folks, family and friends whom I admire...

some funnt tech info.... the guitar that I used for slide is an old Harmony classical that had steel strings on it when I bought it.... this warped the neck and almost caved in the top... it can only be used for slide and sounds fine.... it cost 10 bucks at Goodwill... I've head a lot of fun with that story... "Hey man, how did you get that sound?" 'Well, first you gotta get a $10 guitar"
now that's the blues.....
