Amish - 1972 - Amish

Five-piece from Galt, Ontario formed in 1970 from the remnants of the R & B cover band FJ And The Impressions which included bassist Mike Gingrich and organ player Ron Baumtrog. Amish started out playing cover versions of McKenna-Mendelson Mainline, The Modern Rock Quartet, The Doors and James Gang songs. The band's manager, Bill Gefross, brought them to the attention of US label Sussex Records where Motown producer Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore, both staff producers for Sussex, took the band into GM Studios in East Detroit to record. Guitarist Botts was a draft dodger from the Viet Nam War and couldn't return to the United States to record so session guitarist Joe Gutz performed on the album instead. Their self-titled debut was distributed through Buddah Records in 1972. The album contains a remake of Traffic's "Dear Mr. Fantasy". The original song "Down The Road" was intended as a 7" release with the non-LP track "Upon My Leavin'", but the label never issued it. Ron Baumtrog (keyboard), Doug Stagg (vocals), Richard Botts (guitar), Mike Gingrich (bass), and Jack Byrne (drums).(Canadian Pop Encyclopedia)
