Here we go again, digging through the tickle trunk and what sepia-toned memories have we dug up here?


Ah, first in line is Rod (the Mod) Stewart at Sounds Interchange in Toronto with Warner Canada's A&R exec Gary Muth and Tom Dowd looking accomodating at the control board. Rod was in town recording the album, Blondes Have More Fun, which marked his first foray into disco. The album, released in 1978, was a smash hit, scoring a number one hit at the outset with the lead single,  Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?

Next is the A&M team with Garland Jeffreys on his first concert tour of Canada. Pictured L-R backstage at Massey Hall circa 1978: James Monaco, Q107's Bob Mackowycz, Garland, Ontario promo rep Lee Silversides, and Promotion & Artist Development director Doug 'here for a good time' Chappell.
