Randy Ray Signing

Local author Randy Ray will be in the store on Saturday, January 27 from 12:00-2:00pm to sign copies of his new book about the early Canadian folk, pop, and rock pioneers, As the Years Go By….

From the jacket:
“Anyone who grew up in Canada in the 1950s, ’60s and 70s, knows how amazing this country’s music scene was in those magical decades. Etched in our musical memories are great tunes, TV appearances and live shows featuring The Diamonds, Lighthouse, Steppenwolf, Mashmakhan, Patsy Gallant, Bobby Curtola, Susan Jacks, Moxy and Michel Pagliaro, among many others.

Based on hundreds of interviews [this book is] an inside look at the trials and triumphs, good times and bad encountered by performers, managers and producers, including many who hit the big time. The years may have gone by but the memories linger.”
