Wow! Another forgotten gem

54-40 was a great live band from the pre-alternative era. I think this was their first release, and "Baby Ran" was a huge underground/college radio hit back in the day. Also check out "Get Back Down" and "One Day In Your Life" off their second release.

Good Memories

This band will always be one of my favourites. The first time I saw them was in a tiny club in Edmonton called "Dancing Shoes" at the Mayfield Inn. 54-40 just keeps getting better with each album and this one has some old favourites 'Baby Ran', 'I Go Blind' (later made popular by Hootie & the Blowfish), and 'Take My Hand'. Be sure to check out all of their material -- just another one of Canada's hidden gems. Enjoy!
