July 14 1973

The company has in addition announced the signing of Abraham's Children and the Ugly Ducklings to exclusive booking contracts. General manager of Music Shoppe International is Ron Scribner, who returns to agency work after threes years as a personal manager of Westbound's Funkadelics. He was the principal of Canada's two early rock agencies, Bigland and the Ron Scribner agency. 



Hot juicy loosey latin feel with sugar pop overtones. This is the theme for the Italian Walk Of Fame that Jimi wrote and was produced by hip hop and dip dudes The Rezza Brothers with some fine PLAYING. ( listen to Esperanza now )   

 Are we reading the sign right...voted best wings.

"Mrs. Norton once referred to children as Fragile beginnings of mighty end." Avenue of America's Gary Salter is now preparing his Abraham's Children for a mighty beginning rather than "mighty end." Their release on the G.A.S. label, "Goodbye Farewell", was slow to start but with the combined efforts of manager Jack Morrow and A&R man Paul Gross, they have now had the single listed on almost seventy stations across Canada - a rarity, so early on release.

My favorite song of theirs was "Gypsy". I also like "Goodbye farewell". It was played a lot growing up in Montreal in the 70s. Another CDN classic song from a time far away. Todays music TOTALLY SUCKS compared to back then.
So many of these songs are so hard to find on CD, stuff from Abraham's Children, Edward Bear, Fludd, Bearfoot, Copperpenny, Ken Tobias and others.
 Your music is fine very good lots of chords i trie to learn 1965 very many changes i just learn to play guitar and like your music.
 Hello, I saw the band years ago when I was a teen and I can't believe I'm saying this. I was crazy in love with Jimmy. My bedroom was filled with pictures of him and the band. He signed my album which I still have and the t-shirt I wore to the concert. It was an all around great time and an event any teenager would have been proud to say they attended. The band was so nice at their meet and greet they talked with fans for hours. Thank You is still one of my all time favorites. Thanks for the wonderful memories and great songs. Catherine H.

 Hi I never know what to say when I leave a message. Ok here goes. I met you in Detroit when you were performing with your band Abraham.s Children you had these wild outfits on. You signed my t-shirt and gave me a kiss on the cheek. Thanks for being so nice. Whitney D. Detroit M
Gord Ritchie - What a great sharp colour photo. This is looking like the bandshell. I missed that show for sure. I was at Nathan Phillips Square on a summer day.. And I'm pretty sure the good old Knob Hill Hotel. Did AC play at the Eagles out by Military Trail on the edge of Scarborough and West Hill? Gary & Dave played there too.

 Sharon MacDougall Can almost taste the desire to go back in time and listen to this stuff! This is real talent and real music. So proud they are Canadian!
 Congratulations on 50 years of giving us music. I remember your concert so well in Moncton. You guys were so loud and those outfits were pretty wild, I could see why the girls were going nuts. Anyway thanks Abraham's Children. Raymond F. Moncton NB

Clark Graff You know what else I remember and I have thought about over the years? Morgan Jones (remember him?) and I were sitting in a little Pizza place in Fredericton, I think. We were having lunch when this tall elderly white man with a blazer on and a hat and cane came into the restaurant. He must have been 80 years old. He sat down in I suppose could be described as a familiar and comfortable manner. He looked at the waiter and said "I would like a glass of beer please." That's it. That's all that happened and I have never forgotten that moment, so I owe you for that. Funny life isn't it? Ventura, California
Hi jimi, I got the package yesterday, thank you so very much, wonderful memories from years gone by! I just took pics of it and sent it to one of my dear friends in Nfld who was only 13 when we went to the concert to see you guys.. she’s like, Awesome! After that concert, I went to Toronto to visit my family, my brother brought me to Sam the Record man, I bought two Albums , one for me and the other for my friend in Nfld! Gypsy was a huge hit back home in Nfld! Myself and my brother still sing it today! Debbie Dwyer - Belle Ewart Ont

Hi Jimi, "In grade 8 I went to a high school concert to see a band called
Abraham's Children. I stayed behind and had the band sign the back of my new
shearling jacket. I was only 13 or 12 not sure, and my Father was waiting. When
everyone had left, and I was was still inside...he came in for me.*eeks*I guess the
bands truck that said 'Lock up your daughters The Children are coming' tipped him
off. Many many years later...40 ish...I found the lead singer here! Love ya Jimi
Bertucci :) So nice to keep up with the past, where things had brought you musical
joy." Brenda M

Thank you so much Brenda...it was people and fans like you that made us

One of my favorite Canadian bands of the early 70s, only saw them live once but had all of their music only two albums if I remember correctly. When bands had organs and the flute was popular.
 Just bumming around on you tube and searched for Abrahams Children and lo & behold there they were. To me this was an awesome find, as I saw this band numerous times in the early 70's. A freind of mine at the time ( Ted Kalis ) booked bands into area hotels in the St. Catharines area and these guy's played at the Queensway hotel in a bar called the Purple Onion Room. Ted called me and said ,Gord I've just booked this band you have to see. I was amazed how good these guy's were and bought their album and played it forever until in one move I lost it. I was eccstatic to find they have a CD out that I can purchase as I always wondered what happened to them, I had heard they had gone to California and that was that!! Great news from a fan forever,met them back then and thought they were a great bunch of guys. PS if you have contact with the band ask them if they remember Ted and the Purple Onion Room -  Gord & Joanne Brown - St. Catharines ON Joined The Fan Factory
Dear Jimi, I have been a longtime fan of yours and have followed your career ever since your early days with the Canadian band "Abraham's Children". You are a very talented songwriter and singer and I love listening and singing along to your songs . They are beautifully written and full of emotion . We also happen to have something in common. I am Canadian too! When do you plan on touring in Canada again. I want to make sure I don't miss any of your shows. Your amazing music has had a big impact on my life and I would like to take this opportunity to "Thank You" for sharing it with the world! Love, Rose
I was on the net the other day with my son we were looking at bands from the 70's, as a thought I asked him to see if you had a website .There you were. As I read through the pages the memories began to flow, so Iam writing to share a memory with you . It was 1973 - 1974 I was a young teenager living on manitoulin Island in Northern Ontario. It was our spring dance at Manitoulin Secondary School in west bay .The band played that night and were awesome. Come the end of the night as you were all packing up to leave you had no idea how to get from west bay to little current . as my friend and I were going to little current anyway we offered to take you were you needed to go. We hopped in your station wagon ( I think it was a station wagon) and we road with you to little current. You guys droped us off a! nd headed on your way. To this day I remember that night. I how great you guys were to 2 country girls and how giddy we were for weeks afterwords. I say you again once more (that same year I think around New Years) at the Gasworks in toronto. That was the last time. I am glad that I could shared this memory with you . Thanks for the memory. carol finch

Hi,I just recently came across the website of Abraham's Children, oh the memories came flooding back to 1974 when they played at our school Queen Elizabeth Composite High in Edmonton, my girlfriends and I had the opportunity to meet and spend sometime with them. It was a wonderful day and one that won't be forgotten. I received at the time their drum cover signed by all four.(Jimi, Brian, Ron, Bob) One of them had the nickname SquirrIey, I think it was Brian. I kept the drum cover around for years until my parents decided that it neeed to go once I left home. After touring the website, I was sadden to hear about Brian, I still remember his sense of humor and how the four of them could be the best of friends one minute and angry the next and it was Brian who always turned things around. When we the girls get together and reminisce about old times, this is alway brought up, I wonder what happened to Abraham's Children and now I can share the website with them. This has been a great afternoon touring the website and catching up on Abraham's Children. Carol Fort McMurray, AB   Joined The Fan Factory  

Hi Guys (AC) I know you won't remember, but I met you in Charlottetown, PE in 1972. You played at the Confederation Centre. One of the first radio interviews I did. I was 17 at the time . Alot older now no wiser, still rocking & rollin on the radio. I'm having a hard time finding the hits from the 1970's. I host the Saturday Morning Retro Rewind on OCEAN100, live every weekend, featuring the 70's at 7. I played all your hits when they were hits. If its possible, I'm looking for a CD with all of the hits on it. With your permission, I would like to add them to my 70's Canadian gold rotation.

I rarely watch video's all the way through , this is really good.
I'll share it on my wall if you like. The 12 bar blues scaling with sweeping , the off chords with piano reminds me of 80's rush , the coulor's reminded me of led zepplin ( traveling riverside blues ) but with the 80's nostalgia , it even faded out .

That song stuck to me like glue all these years! I found the song again last week. Not having heard it for 35 years, I enjoyed the memory trip back in that new 73 Buick Century! Best wishes from PEI!

Unfortunately the tabloids just obtained the attached picture and it will be no doubt be published this week. I wanted to share this news with my family and friends before it becomes public.

jimi b! You the man! I give it up! I didn't know I was in the presence rock 'n roll royalty! Too busy killin' myself with this record. Never again will I go this road alone, brother. To Toronto, to you, & Nick, & a girl by the name of Jen Marion who I wrote a song for called "Los Angeles" the day I found out she left town to go back to the great Northwest. Now, the great wave tsunami is rollin' down your street & we're all watchin TV. I wish I had the opportunity to give this, this, oh, this, los angeles, los angeles, los angeles ... Al'right, boss Take care.Kevin Los Angeles- Ca Joined The Fan Factory 

  Jimi this brought tears to my eyes you are so talented , and your words for daddy are so true. It was rather sad for me however the message came across I encourage my siblings to watch it and get their feed back. ciao domenico - Toronto Canada ( view visual poetry )  Joined The Fan Factory  

Hi Jimi. Happy new year. Hope all is going well. John Toronto CAN Joined The Fan Factory   

Great job Jimi! I've been listening to it over and over again and it is definitely a catchy theme. I really like the build up from the intro... very upbeat, clean and fresh... works well with the whole concept of the event... I think the guitar riffs add an Italian sound/touch which I really, really like... horns sound great too.

 I've loved the band ever since I saw them as a teenager in the 70’s. One of the first bands I ever saw, in a high school gym auditorium in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. I hung around to meet the band and still have their autographs on this card. The bottom 3rd of the card was a mail away postcard to get some fan stuff. The top has the signatures of Brian, Bob, Ron, Jimmie and Shawn O’Shea I still have their vinyl album and love those pop tunes. Kyle Miller - Coquitlam, British Columbia

  When you purchase an OOMII original you are doing just that. A portion goes to help the lost pets of the world.

Great meeting you, Jimi, and noting all the connections that we share.

  Hiya, Marisa :-) Just thought I'd lethca know AC "Time" CD arrived today . . .thanks a million!! I couldn't be happier with the CD. You were right on the mark . . . the plastic case is very cool and reflects the look of the album to a "T". I'm happier to have a reissue of the "original" with the artwork and stuff instead of simply having the tunes on a Best Of. It's just like my LP copy of Time. It will have an honoured and permanet place in my CanCon CD collection :-) Thanks again . . . and have a great weekend!! Scott .  Joined The Fan Factory

BUDDAH RECORDS - Was the ultimate bubblegum label . It was the home to 1910 Fruit Gum Company, Neil Sedaka , Paul Anka, Abraham's Children, Ohio Express , Shadows of Knight, David Cassidy, and an endless list of others. The founding member of Buddah was a visionary man named Neil Bogart. Abraham's Children first met Neil, when he was invited to attend a showcase of the band, in Toronto, Canada. GAS Records , the Children's Canadian label , had set up this elaborate concert showcase in the premier hotel, Inn On The Park , Neil was flown in with around 15 other major US labels. ,  

Encountering the blog sites or forums, as they are usually called, was something I discovered accidentally. I was reading a news article online one day. I can't remember what paper it was, or if it even was a newspaper for that matter. When I reached the end of the story, there was a box on the page that allowed one to express his or her opinion about the article. I noticed that others had left comments and I proceeded to read them. I found many of them to be well written and valid concerning the issue presented in the article...(order the book)

Abraham's Children was a household name, forever in our musical hearts and yes we keep alive for others to hear & enjoy although you guys went on for other musical journeys as well.

Canzone super fantastica jimi b! This song of yours shows influnce of mid-60's british invasion. A truly brilliant song, just the right length and would recieve tons of radio time in my opinion. Ands so extremely well engineered. You're like fine wine Jimi B., so much improving with age. Deve essere la qualità dell'italia. I'm struggling to get to your itunes from your site. Lin wouldn't tae me there again. Going in manually. Happy holidays and thanks very much for this. Incredible music in you. Gord Ritchie
