Canadian Squires


The Canadian Squires evolved from Ronnie Hawkins' backing band the Hawks. Hawkins and his drummer Levon Helm were from Arkansas, but finding huge success in Ontario, they started recruiting local musicians as original members of the Hawks returned to the U.S. After leaving Hawkins in 1964, the group toured on their own, usually billed as Levon and the Hawks. Personnel changed periodically, but by the time of this recording, all the members of the group that would go on to become the Band was in place, four of the five from southern Ontario.

Personnel changed periodically, but by the time of this recording, all the members of the group that would go on to become the Band was in place, four of the five from southern Ontario. Hawkins' producer at Roulette, the legendary Henry Glover brought them into Bell Studios in New York to record two fine Robbie Robertson originals, Leave Me Alone and Uh Uh Uh, in the spring of 1965. Glover released these on the Ware label in the U.S., and on Apex in Canada. In September they recorded two further Robertson originals, the soulful He Don't Love You and The Stones I Throw that made it to the Atco label, but all this was overshadowed by their meeting Dylan in late summer of '65.

In late 1968, Atco dug up one further song, Go Go Liza Jane, recycling He Don't Love You for the flip.
