MajikBus Entertainment have partnered with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to explore, develop & commercially release a special range of music products from one of the largest untapped entertainment archives in existence. Dating back to the very beginning of Radio and Television, this extraordinary body of work captures performances by some of the most influential and globally recognised artists in the world, from Johnny Cash to Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters and The Doors.

MajikBus introduce ‘The Transcription Records’ Series.

In the late 1960s the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation decided it needed to give a boost to home grown talent and help Canadians compete for airtime with British and American artists. The ‘Transcription Records’ were produced in small runs of 250 units and sent to radio stations across Canada and the US.

On 23rd March, some 48 years later, these long-lost albums recorded in the 1960s and 70s by Canadian jazz, folk, blues and rock artists are to finally see their first ever commercial release.

Highly sought-after and collectable, these exceptional albums are a true vinyl collectors must-have. Remastered from the original tapes where they still exist, or carefully restored from mint vinyl originals along with the original artwork, these strictly limited edition vinyl reissues will be pressed on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl at the brand new, state-of-the-art record pressing plant Dublin Vinyl.

Pre-order any item on the MajikBus campaign to access exclusive V.I.P updates, video content from the CBC archives and complimentary digital downloads. Look out for additions to the campaign in the coming months, including vinyl & box set releases from legends including Johnny Cash, Muddy Waters, The Doors and many more.

Pre-order exclusively from Pledge Music today:

Judy Singh – A Time For Love, 1970.

Edmonton born singer Judy Singh’s 1970 CBC album is one of the most sought after recordings of sunshine pop by collectors, with originals selling for upwards of $500 a copy.

This wonderful mix of influences from Sergio Mendes to Burt Bacharach features breezy jazz and bossa tinged arrangements by Tommy Banks of songs by the Bergmans, Johnny Mandel, Jimmy Webb as well as contemporary Canadian songwriters.

Standout tracks include Brasil 66’s ‘Look Around’, the DJ friendly ‘Samba del Sol’, Northern Soul tinged ‘So I’m Wrong Again’ and the gorgeous ‘Song Under The Sun’.

Emile Normand Sextet – Emile Normand, 1970.

This soul meets spiritual jazz album by vibes and marimba master Emile Normand Sextet is a super rare treat. Recorded in 1968 only for internal use on CBC radio stations, this grail for jazz collectors features fabulous covers of Yusef Lateef, Horace Silver and Jorge Ben.

Standout tracks include ‘Morning’, ‘Mas Que Nada’ and ‘Senor Blues’.

Perth County Conspiracy – The Perth County Conspiracy, 1970.

A true legend of the psych-folk rock genre, the very first album by Canadian band Perth County Conspiracy was conceived, recorded and designed to look and sound like the product of a commercial record label. But with only 250 copies produced the record quickly reached mythic status as the band went on to begin a commercial career with Columbia Records. A huge influence on later generations of Canadian artists, original copies are incredibly rare and change hands for hundreds of dollars.

Defining the zeitgeist as the 60s became the 70s, the band sound has touches of Nick Drake, Donovan and Terry Reid, as well as more acid folk influences.

Standout tracks include a version of Donovan’s ‘Hurdy Gurdy Man’, Dylan’s ‘I Shall Be Released’, the trippy ‘Take Your Time’ and the smokey flute-led ‘So Many Things’.
