    One more Rheos (last one from me, I promise):

    The song is called Northern Wish. I'd never heard this version before. (Despite me posting all these vids by them, I'm not a rabid fan at all - I just think they meet the OP's description to a T. The bass player lives around the corner. Our dogs do not get along.) They do a more "traditional" rock arrangement of this on Melville.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    The parkland brothers.
    They do a lot of good tunes.
    Soul city?
    Anyone heard it? It's from the 80's

    Partland Bros? I vaguely remember the name. I remember it as Partland.

    Cheers,

    I love Joni Mitchell!! The Cowboy Junkies are great too! On a very different musical note, guitarist Lenny Breau was born in the states but he was considered to be like an adopted Canadian. Many people think of him as being a Canuck. There's a bunch of other great Canadian jazz players too. Oh yeah, and KD Lang...I don't like all of her material, but what a killer voice! Her recent CD is great!!!! I don't like Bruce Cockburn's singing,but I've admired his lyrics and he's a fabulous guitarist! Them Canadians are really nice AND really talented...lol.

    Great album, but do you Canadians not include Toronto and/or Montreal?

    The Wheezing Dogs from the Stratford Ontario area in the early '80s were one of the weirdest groups I can remember.

    Nash The Slash was the first listenable user of backing tracks/looping I can remember, and electric violin and mandolin. Saw him lots of times, on campus mostly.

    Gordon Lightfoot. To many songs to choose from but this one has a Traynor amp in it so its even more Canadian.
