AC charted on the RPM music magazine with every record they put out. Most of them went to top ten. A few reached number 1 across the country. 

 
 THE READER - Famous international actor, director, Nick Mancuso, best known for his role in the hit TV series "Stingray" breathes life into these two exciting stories as the reader. 

(cont'd from) On a recent tour of the Atlantic Provinces, Abraham's Children pulled capacity houses and received rave reviews. Brian Dunnine, a reporter for the St. John's Journal-Pioneer, wrote; " What perhaps sets this group of young Canadian talent aside, is their friendliness. They have not acquired the attitudes associated with top recording artists, that of the mighty visiting the small. Rather, all four could be described as being average young Canadians, if you could call producing two hit songs both of which are on local hit parade, average". According to their manager, Jack Morrow, the group " is the most dynamic, hard-working band in North America", and further predicts that they will be " without a doubt, the hottest act in show business in one year." He also challenges any other band to match Abraham's Children on the same billing. That's manager talk-but Morrow's proof of this claim is their 30,000 draw at Toronto's Center Island and another 25,000 at the Toronto CNE and packed house after house wherever they appear.

KING OF TOONS (cont'd from friends) After graduating from Danforth Tech he landed a job at Eatons as a commercial artist. "It was a job and an opportunity for me to grow as an artist." He met his wife Rosemary at the St. Bridges Young Peoples Club at a Sunday night dance and, although Andy felt a little awkward due to his 240lb frame, the attraction was there.
It was 1961 and The Telegram was blanketing the city with news sports entertainment and the odd bit of gossip to keep the kitchen maids happy. Andy would be part of this paper pop culture doing layouts, illustrations and entertainment spreads.
The Great Flag Design was the talk of the country in 1964 and I imagine the Queen finally gave in by thinking "Ah what the heck, let Canada have its own flag". I have to admit though that I kinda liked the Union Jack. "Al Beaton was perhaps one of the most respected cartoonists in the day," Donato told me and when he became ill Andy rightfully took centre stage and designed a flag that incorporated everything including the kitchen sink. There has been no lack of awards for Andy, having received the National Newspaper Award for editorial cartooning, the Best Editorial Cartoon in the World Award (from Montreal Salon of Cartoons) and having twice won the Metropolitan Toronto Police Annual News Award for Cartooning. Now Andy is scheduled to receive the prestigious Italian Walk Of Fame star that will be placed in Little Italy on College Street. "I just about fell on the floor", he told the Toronto Sun newspaper when he heard the news of his induction. "I'm very proud of my Italian roots and I always have been," he added. The Sun family couldn't be happier for Andy. Publisher, Mike Power, upon hearing the news had this to say, "He's been such a big part of the Toronto Sun's success and has been one of the top editorial cartoonists in North America for decades."
Andy's cartoons became part of pop culture and allowed us to laugh at our social surroundings that were, often times, represented more seriously in print. Politics, in any country, can be a challenge for the many that depend on the media to do the explaining. Andy accomplished this not only by drawing cartoons that depicted the news of the day, but by doing so in a humorous manner. He mastered his craft so well that many Canadian politicians consider it an honor if Donato targets them.

This long-awaited compilation, which happens to also be the band’s newest release, brings you all your favorite songs remastered, including the group’s biggest hit, Gypsy. Other chart-hitting tunes include Thank You, Goodbye Farewell and Goddess of Nature among others.

Hard core fans will especially appreciate this very special one-time bonus offer not available anywhere else.n  

 

HITS 

Jimi B Jimi B - BNO-9069 When Jimi started the production of this album he made sure he had some of the best players on the session. He recruited Prakash John on bass who is well known for that famous bass line on Take A Walk On The Wild Side with Lou Reed. He recorded for many great artists and spent many years as the bass player for Alice Cooper.Today Prakash has his own band called The Lincolns. Mike Sloski is perhaps the hottest studio and live drummers working today. He worked with BB Gabor for many years. Rob Guseve on keyboards just listen to Wickless Dynamite and we need say no more. Peter Follett on guitar check out All American Boy for a classic rock n roll lead. Other guests include Jody Colero on keys, Kevin Bell guitar, Paul Massey on that great trumpet line, Cathy Young backing vocals. Engineered by Steve Vaughan, asst. engineer Paul Massey. Recorded at Masters Workshop, Toronto Canada.n 

 

Jimi B 

Jimi B - Through The Eyes Of Vincenzo - BNO1022 This is the first cd that mr. B put out since his move to Cali. Some pretty impressive songs and playing by his band that included, the late Kelvin Womack on bass and backing vocals, Vinnie DeFloria on guitar, the late Dave Valdez on drums, Robert Hoelting on keys and backing vocals, Jimi on vocals, acoustic guitar, bass and piano. With some additional players. Bob Feldman on bass, Mike Cherney on guitars, Gregg Fisher guitar. " Dark Side " was one of the most downloaded songs on mp3 and number one for 19 weeks on stationmp3. Other cuts included are " Don't Close Your Eyes " "Through The Eyes of Vincenzo" This is a great effort for Jimi and should do well. Recorded at Studio 9 Los Angeles, and SRO Studios, Fontana, California.n  

 

TTEOV 

ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN - Time BNO 3001 This is the only album that AC would release. This classic piece of Canadiana musical art is still as fresh today as it was when it was originally released. It is the ultimate bubble gum trophy. The album put out three hits "Goodbye Farewell" "Gypsy" and "Thank You" all these songs charted well and a couple of them went to number one in many major markets. BNO has remastered this with the help of Garwood Wallace in Toronto, Canada. The sound is awesome. This remains to be a big seller and anyone that ever had the album should definitely get this classic cd. Big strings tight harmonies and some incredible playing. Although the band was considered a commercial success, songs like "Workin For The Man" "Woman O Woman" are as heavy as heavy can be, do not underestimate the power of pop.n  

 

TIME  

ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN 30 - BNO 010905 This album has it all including the kitchen sink. 30 songs some are classic some are lost treasures that any collector would give up their sister to own. There are songs in here I have never heard of and of course hit after hit. I enjoyed the interview clips and some of the comments made by, I presume Jimi or one of the band members. Listen to " Would Mother Approve " a haunting piece that tells the story of a fan that gets infatuated with a rock group only to learn her mother does not approve. " Dreams To Sea " a progressive cut that would make YES spin... all in all this is worth having if you like to explore the depths of AC. I can appreciate the ecletic collection of songs. This is the cd to have. There are a couple of duds on this but overall it stands the sands of time. Produced by BNOrecordingUSA.n

NATOPUS - Transition - BNO -1985 This is what some people might call a new age cd. Well it is. When Jimi first moved to Los Angeles he hooked up with a musician named Bob Slap. Bob had been working with Valley Of The Sun a label that specialized in new age music and self help products. Slap asked Jimi if he would like to help him with a project,...many albums later. Jimi was asked by the Dick Sutphen president of the company to produce something on his own. Natopus was born. This cd has sold extremely well in Japan over the years. The music was also used in many Lamaze classes in hospitals in the California area. Not everyones cup of tea. You can listen and download Natopus FREE!!! at BIGMUSIC. Sure is interesting what Jimi can come up with. Recorded at Horizon Studios in Malibu, California.n

 NEW YORK - 252 Grace Street - If you thought poetry was boring, think again!

Already renowned as a well-respected and gifted songwriter, Bertucci is adding to his list of artistic writing credits by unveiling another dimension to his many talents.

( Crushing Grapes Cont'd from iUpdate )...Davi as a movie star. The devout Catholic walked me down memory lane and through the streets of Brooklyn where he shared moments to which only an Italian could relate...the "crushing" ritual of the red & white grapes in preparation for the holy wine. He described his father as a silent Sicilian; a Navy gunner awarded the Purple Heart who had once aspired to be an actor and a singer. "My father was a handsome man. He looked like Marcello Mastroianni...he made a demo record." In the forth grade young Robert got his feet wet on the live stage in the classic play George Washington Slept Here, playing Sam the black butler. His teacher, Ms. Alexander, was so impressed that she expressed her sincere admiration for young Davi's talent and recommended that they encourage him in the arts.
The family's TV room also happened to be young Robert's bedroom and it was not unusual for him to be up in the middle of the night watching movies with his mom. She stressed to him the importance of studying some of the greats, Bogart, Mitchum, Lewis and Martin.
The talented boy would sometimes mimick his family members, portraying them as a dysfunctional group of characters and causing them to laugh hysterically. This of course was always done with love. In high school he joined the Speech & Debate Club where he had the opportunity to stretch his acting ability by playing multiple characters and competing with over one hundred schools in the NY state area. The accolades for young Davi confirmed his direction in the arts.
Later on in his early career Robert's agent, Barry Moss, mentioned that Frank Sinatra was in town and that they were casting for "Contract On Cherry Street" at the Columbia offices, but that Sinatra was using only friends and family for the film. Robert decided to go to the casting office anyway and, to his good fortune, was told that not all the parts were cast and was asked to provide a headshot. Filled with excitement Robert ran back to his agent's office for the promo picture and returned to Columbia. The next day they called him. "It was three months with Sinatra over the summer and then they flew me out here to do three more weeks of pick up shots, staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel," said Davi.
This bigger-than-life bad boy who had studied opera still maintains his moral values when it comes to selecting projects, which begged the question; "How does a man with so much dedication towards his faith perform horrific acts of violence in many of his movies?" I could see my query had touched a nerve, as a moment of silence followed before the answer came.
"I didn't start as an actor. I started as a singer. The roles I play bring me to the public." He continued with words about spirituality and faith in a well-informed monolog of truth and curiosity. He expressed his fondness for the rituals of the Latin mass, for its theatricality and mystery. "My cousins were cynical. One, in particular, couldn't understand my blind faith, as he was seeking out everything else. He went on to explain that there had been many roles he refused to take because he thought they were too dark. On the other hand, the acting allows him to do what he really enjoys best, and that is to sing. "My singing expresses the totality of who I am," Davi added. I wasn't sure whether he had answered my question or not, and I wasn't going to backtrack to words long forgotten. I understood the logic behind Mr. Davi's explanation. Moving on I asked him about the sixties and if drugs had played a role at anytime for him during the free love days. "I always got high on life and I liked girls a lot".
Let's skip to what Davi is doing today. This pop-jazz crooner is doing just that, performing his latest series of concerts and receiving accolades for "Davi Sings Sinatra." Quincy Jones declares Davi to be the reincarnate of "old blue eyes" right down to the attitude." On the film side, his latest movie "Iceman" is creating a Hollywood buzz.
Robert Davi is the American dream. A youth determined to succeed with his fantasy and aspirations of grandieur. Now, in his prime, this rugged man knows there are no limits to what one can accomplish as long as he remains focused...his words. I listened to Mr. Davi sing and you can't help but be drawn in and intoxicated by his sublime power of hypnosis.

Radio Tree - Words & Music by Jimi Bertucci - I sat underneath the Joshua tree, wiping the desert sweat from my face. The evening sun was settling and the orange layered skies enjoyed the whispering of the wind. The Mojave Desert has a certain spiritual atmosphere about it; the giant rocks marvel at the moon, calling and challenging to be explored. My guitar resonated with such clarity that I found myself walking in different areas to capture the ever-changing sounds. I began a pulsing groove that became embedded in my subconscious. I imagined these beautiful Yucca brevifolia with branches that were different types of radios, all having a purpose and playing music that was shared by the widespread canvas of nature. The preservation of space and time reflected within my inner soul while I stared hypnotically at the blanket stars and as the lyrics came to fruition. “I have been to the desert, slept in the sand.” How true this was as I listened to the sounds of the untamed wilderness. “Play it loud play it Lennon under the Radio Tree.” (go to Passion & Innocence)
