Thanks to Gord Lansdell for drawing our attention to a new ebook from The Province Hall of Fame writer Tom Harrison. A History of Vancouver Rock ’n’ Roll looks back at the pioneers, visionaries and mavericks who started the local recording industry and turned it into a music hotbed with international stars and producers.
To celebrate its release, The Province is running excerpts from the eBook every Sunday this summer. Chapter One: Welcome to Vancouver, Rock ’n’ Roll includes the local pioneers, Al Jordan (far right), Red Robinson (centre), CJOR PD Vic Waters (left/upper) and CKNW’s Jack Cullen (left/lower).
And you can read that excerpt HERE at The Province website.
