Northwest Company –Rock ‘n’ Roll Lover Man – Top Canadian Rocker 1971

Northwest Company –Rock ‘n’ Roll Lover Man/ Let It All –Coast C 1974 (Canada 1971)

Canada’s Northwest Company are probably best known among collectors for their debut Garage Punk double-headed monster Hard to Cry/ Get Away From It All from 1967, but the band persevered until the early 70s and released several other singles of note, including this fine outing from 1971. Rock ‘n’ Roll Lover Man chugs along in fine rockin’ fashion and features some neat west coast harmony singing that is grounded by the tough and rugged playing which differentiates it from more usual rural Poco -like fare. 
The B side is also great, more intricate in terms of arrangement; it features a killer short lead break among other unexpected twists and turns.
