At request: Sweeney Todd - S/T 1975 (Flac)

The band, formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, originally consisted of vocalist Nick Gilder, guitarist Jim McCulloch, bassist Budd Marr, keyboardist Dan Gaudin and drummer John Booth. The single, "Roxy Roller", became a No. 1 hit in Canada, holding the top position in the RPM national singles chart for three weeks beginning on June 26, 1976, and winning a Juno Award for the band.
Gilder and McCulloch subsequently left the band to pursue solo careers. Gilder subsequently had hits with "Hot Child in the City", "Here Comes the Night" and "(You Really) Rock Me".
Clark Perry was brought in to replace Gilder on vocals, and Skip Prest replaced McCulloch on guitar. Though he did record a second version of Roxy Roller, Perry did not work out, however, and was replaced within a few months by then 15-year-old Bryan Adams.
The new lineup recorded Sweeney Todd's second album, If Wishes Were Horses, which includes the third version of Roxy Roller. However, that album was unsuccessful, and Adams left the band after less than a year. The band attempted to carry on with Chris Booth on vocals (and Grant Gislason replacing Prest in 1978), but broke up before recording any further albums.

At request.
