The name of this hugely underrated Canadian band was derived from A.A.Milne‘s ‘Winnie the Pooh’, whose ‘proper’ name is Edward Bear. In contrast to their later, mainstream works, the band's eclectic debut album (released on Capitol Records in 1969) without a doubt it's one of very best Canadian rock albums ever! Full-blown ‘late psych/early prog’ music based on doomy Hammond organ sounds, intense and heavy guitar parts, very solid drumming and hugely attractive vocal parts merged with memorable hooks, catchy, Beatles-like melodies and blues elements. lt’s quite similar to early Trafﬁc, Procol Harurn and even Andwella's Dream! The band had it's biggest hit in 1972, when ‘Last Song’ charted at #1 in Canada and peaked at #3 in the Billboard’s list!
