Abraham's Children 30 - BNO 010905 This double cd set has it all including the kitchen sink. 30 songs, some are classic, some are lost treasures that any collector would give up their sister to own. There are songs in here I have never heard of and of course hit after hit. I enjoyed the interview clips and some of the comments made by, I presume Jimi or one of the band members. Listen to " Would Mother Approve " a haunting piece that tells the story of a fan that gets infatuated with a rock group only to learn her mother does not approve. " Dreams To Sea " a progressive cut that would make YES spin... all in all this is worth having if you like to explore the depths of AC. Included is a great little comemorative booklet filled with photos documenting the band's history. Without a doubt this is the collection to own. There are a couple of duds on this but overall and some of the interviews are fun to listen to. 30 stands the sands of time. and will probably see good sales. Produced by Jimi Bertucci and BNOrecordingUSA . Executive Producer - Marisa Lang, Songs published by James Bert Publishing Socan/Ascap order30

 WOLFMAN JACK became a big fan of THE CHILDREN. His intro of the band at Toronto's Center Island that attracted over 25 thousand fans almost caused fan hysteria.The band received incredible audience attention that security guards had to be called in. A group of young ladies found their way into the The Children's dressing room. Todd Rundgren, Manfred Mann, Canned Heat, Rory Gallagher, A Foot In Coldwater. Dr. Hook and The Medicine Show, Diamond Back were also appearing. This was the third time that Abraham's Children appeared on Center Island. The first time they were called Captain Midnites Dirty Feat

Dear Abraham's Children,

I should have done this a long,long time ago.I've known for awhile now of Brian's passing,and I was deeply saddened when I heard this.Words cannot describe how I have felt for the song "Gypsy" after all these years.I always listen to it.From the very first time I heard it on the radio in the early seventies,I still have this connection to it today.Yes,I had the album,"Time". I loved it."Gypsy" has a nice rich texture and Brian's vocals are beautiful.I like everything by Abraham's Children,but "Gypsy" ,for me,was powerful."Goddess Of Nature" and "How To Be A Lady" are other songs I still listen to.When I'm working in my studio (read more)

ALWAYS FRESH - Maria Grazia Cucinotta - The orange skies and balmy evening brought a melancholy rush to my body as I strolled down Santa Monica Boulevard towards the water. I noticed a long line of enthused patrons holding Starbuck coffee cups and chatting while waiting to get into the theater. My eyes happened to turn upwards to the marquee that read "Il Postino". ...(more)

 HAMILTON, ONT. HEARTBEAT RUN - This question always comes up in interviews so, as a dedicated journalist, I wanted to get the scoop for our records. My question to Canada's Fab 4, as they were sometimes labeled, was this. "What was the largest venue in which you ever performed and why was it so special?" (read more)

COVER STORY ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN A NEW CHAPTER - "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. Morrow's telephone hype included calls to John Oliver/CHEC Lethbridge: Al Jenssen CHAK Inuvik: Greg Stewart/CKWS Kingston: Mike Christie/CKOM Saskatoon: Dave Hammond CFCY/ Charlottetown: Doug McAllister CHNL/ Kamloops and (read more)
 CANADA'S FAB 4 - Like so many other bands, AC has gone through some changes over the years. Although the original line-up has altered, the spirit of the music remains strong and, in many ways, more fresh. With time, musicians hone in on their craft and in certain cases become mature players. Jimi Bertucci, lead singer/songwriter and founder of the band, has done just that with Abraham's Children. The group explores the possibilities of the now sound and uses their AC experience as a foundation to create a tasteful and unique pop adventure. It's interesting to note that these guys have been rockin' and rollin' for over 30 years and still maintain a bright and positive outlook about their music in a business that can sometimes make you cynical. Their sex-appeal hasn't waned either. Bertucci, in particular, still exudes his rock-star sexuality to the glee of the females in the crowd. Unlike some bands that have come before, AC has managed to retain their long-time fan base while appealing to, and ultimately attracting, a new younger audience. Their live performance is nothing short of dynamic so it's easy to see why their popularity continues to grow. Originally considered a bubblegum pop group, AC's sound can now be categorized more along the lines of the pop/rock genre. Don't miss Abies Babies...really. ML 

TREND SETTERS? Abraham's Children had one of the most elaborate and creative wardrobes. Even when they weren't performing they looked hot. Their tailor Jerry was this cool Jamaican.......he would always get such a kick designing new things for the band. The more outrageous the better. One outfit he designed for Jimi was this full length jumpsuit made of purple sequins, (below) The suit would weigh about 50 pounds after a live concert, and Jimi always claimed he lost at least 7 pounds per show.....nice program. The designer would usually design two of each outfits. This white satin suit with full rhinestones on the lapels was worn at a Liberace concert and Liberace made Jimi stand up at his show. The crowd gave Jimi a big round of applause... Jimi and Lee became good friends, that's another story. Read about Jimi 's first encounter. with Liberace in Regina Saskachewan, Canada.
I hope this message gets to Jimi B. I have been listening and downloading your songs for awhile now and was wondering when some new songs would be added, I really like your style of music it is very well written and played. Does Jimi write all the lyrics and music. Annie Henderson Belfast-Ireland  

Toronto - Marisa and Robert Davi met up at the Italian Film Festival wrap party held at Toula’s on top of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto . Mr. Davi’s film, The Dukes, which he directed and also starred in, ended the festival’s 5-day long run with a bang by getting rave reviews. A departure from his familiar role as “the bad guy”, the "dramedy", as he describes it, showed us all there is a lighter, more charming, side to the man. The screening took place earlier that same evening at the Bloor St. Cinema and marked the film’s Canadian premier. 

Hey gang keep in touch with AC. Join the group and let us know what you've got happening. And don't forgetn to like. Later 

I don't believe you get tired of touring and performing live. There's a certain magic when you step onto a stage flooded by rainbow lights and the buzz of electricity. Both band and audience undergo a transformation, at least for the temporary duration of the performance. Confessing your most inner thoughts to thousands of perky ears as they shake their heads in approval is oftentimes surreal..... To look over to the other side of the stage and feel the energy is delisouise...frozen moments in time I call them...photo by George Onuska   
FRANCO NERO Toronto-Canada - Abies Babies Manager Marisa Lang enjoys the company of international renowned actor Franco Nero. Mr. Nero is well known as one of the original Spaghetti-Western kings. His classic flick Django is still one of the best selling dvd's of all time. Mr. Nero was first discovered by director John Huston, who cast him in "The Bible: In The Beginning" (1967). That same year he appeared in Camelot as Sir Lancelot, where he met his long-time romantic partner Vanessa Redgrave, whom he later married. In 2010, Nero and Redgrave paired up in the film Letters to Juliet. The handsome blue-eyed actor was recently in Toronto to receive a star on the Italian Walk of Fame along with the Common Spirit Award for his contribution to the arts.

T.F.F. All aboard! Look who Marisa Lang and Jimi Bertucci happened to bump into at the Toronto International Film festival...Melissa DiMarco (centre), actress/TV personality and host of Out There with Melissa DiMarco. An abundance of yummy hors d'euvres were served and the champagne flowed at the Italian Cinema party aboard the Kajama Tall Ship docked at Toronto's harbour. The three had lots to chat about, including the launch of the Italian Walk of Fame which Bertucci and Lang are spearheading. They even took time out from their schmoozing to shoot a short scene that will air in the coming weeks on DiMarco's TV show Out There With Melissa DiMarco. Stay tuned. Photo by Tony Morrone  
 

Ok ,so they say he's one of the greatest goalies...who am I to argue. Roberto Luongo Lu Lu Lu as he is better known to his dedicate stable of fans gets his star on the Italian Walk Of Fame.

Grantly host of Canadian Bandstand told the band they were his favorite of all the bands that performed on CB - AC performed on the show more than any other band.

Dear Marisa - Unfortunately there are no clips, photos or any kind of footage available from Bandstand.CKCO TV did have a small clip for their anniversary show but I don't know where they got it and I have been unable to secure a copy. I still have many people I run in to who remember the show and love to talk about it. I have a lot of fond memories and I sure get choked up when people remember the show and want to talk about it. Thanks again for remembering and If you come up with something, I would sure love to get some copies. Grant Hoffman (host) Canadian Bandstand. BUBBLEGUM HERO
