- 2009 This Beat Goes On
Canadian Pop Music in the 1970s
(CBC main network, Aug. 27 & Sept. 3 at 9 p.m.)
(CBC Newsworld, Sept. 12 & Sept. 18 at 10 p.m.)
This Beat Goes On tells the story of Canadian music in the 1970s, a ground-breaking era of great sounds, from glam and progressive rock to punk and reggae. Set in the formative years of Canada's music industry, This Beat Goes On offers a jukebox full of chart-topping songs from, from Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown" and Nick Gilder's "Hot Child in the City" to Trooper's "Raise a Little Hell" and Max Webster's "Paradise Skies." The Good Brothers perform "Alberta Bound."
Mixing archival footage with candid interviews, the documentary features proven hitmakers like Anne Murray, Neil Young and The Guess Who as well as a wealth of new folksingers, blues artists and mullet-rockers. Solo artists like Joni Mitchell and progressive rockers Rush still rule, but it's also a time of shaved heads and skinny ties, as punk and new wave artists push their way into the spotlight. By the end of the decade, the Can-rock revolution has arrived.
From B.T.O. to D.O.A., This Beat Goes On presents the wealth of music that sprang from the Great White North during the explosive Seventies.

- The Good Brothers - "True Believer"
The first single from their new CD, Blind Faith
Canadian country music legends, The Good Brothers, present to you their single, "True Believer" from the trio's newest album, Blind Faith. Written by twin brothers Bruce and Brian Good and Bruce's son, Travis Good of alt-country band, The Sadies, "True Believer" melds the Good Brother's classic country and trademark roots sound into a heartwarming track that begs to be repeated.
With Blind Faith the Brothers have created an inviting album with songs that explore and celebrate faith and family. Blind Faith is distributed in Canada by Outside Music.
For more than thirty years, The Good Brothers have been innovators in the country music genre, releasing fourteen albums and winning Country Group of the Year at the Juno awards eight years in a row. They have toured tirelessly across North America and have more than 25 European tours under their belts.
Inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004, The Good Brothers have continued to create and perform. They released a live album the following year called, Live at the Rattlesnake Saloon, and have continued to tour worldwide since.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this song!
- The Good Brothers / Blind Faith - a new Good Brother CD scheduled for Release September 12, 2006. This recording is dedicated to the
memory of our parents, Harold and Albina Good, who encouraged us to sing and love music. The songs we have chosen represent a blend of
traditional bluegrass tunes sung to us as children, and more recent original compositions. This is a glimpse into our family music history.
We hope you enjoy listening to this collection of inspirational and gospel songs as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.
Bruce, Brian, Larry and George

- On Saturday, April 16th The Good Brothers made their triumphant return to Toronto with the
release of their brand new CD, Live At The Rattlesnake Saloon, at
Toronto's Legendary Hugh's Room (2262 Dundas Street West).
Brothers have gained a worldwide audience over the course of their accomplished
career. Bruce Good and twin brother Brian, along with kid brother Larry, have
been playing together all their lives, but started working professionally in the
early '70s. They played simple music, straight from the heart that encompassed
country, bluegrass, folk and the occasional page from the rock 'n' roll
songbook. Fiddle tunes flowed, as did cover songs, highlighted by Larry's banjo
breaks, Bruce's autoharp, their unique sibling harmonies and enough on-stage
energy to burn down a cornfield.
Thirty years and 14 albums later, the
boys have gone through some personnel changes and personal growth. There have
been eight straight Juno awards as Best Country Group, headline gigs at Massey
Hall, a platinum album and twenty-one European tours.
Live At The
Rattlesnake Saloon was recording in Munich on one of the band's many
successful tours of Europe. The new album is a toe-tapping romp through
re-worked classics, like "Rolling In My Sweet Baby's Arms" together with
timeless masterpieces such as Stephen Foster's "Angelina Baker", and A.P.
Carter's "Wildwood Flower." For good measure the CD also contains some of the
brother's self-penned songs like "A Rag and a Fiddle" and the emotional "An Old
So head over to Hugh's Room to take in the show. Tickets
are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. The event is a real family affair as the
sons of Bruce Good, Dallas and Travis, along with their band The
Sadies kick off the evening at 8.30pm and The Good Brothers take the
stage at 9.30pm.
