The Missing Links – It’s Link Up Time (1966)

May 22, 2009

Name: The Missing Links
Release: It’s Link Up Time (LP Record)
Year: 1966
Home: Chatham Kent Ontario Canada.
Formerly known as: Zeke and the Moonshiners, then The Larsen Brothers.

Members:
John Larsen – Bass
Fred Larsen – Organ
Eddy Larsen (Ole) – Guitar
Bill McGrath – Drums

Bob Hunt, from England, had played drums at one point.

Notes: Produced by Paul Shaffer, who is best known as the musical director for David Letterman’s late night talk show.
   The record is a mix of originals and covers. The band was on the road allot touring, but did settle down at the end of their run. They were the house band for the Kingsway in Chatham for roughly four years.
    John Larsen’s son Kiley plays drums in the metal band Nerve.

 The Missing Links were together for 11 years and spend a good 4-5 years playing in Toronto without ever having to leave there. They were a hot band and were very well in demand.
  Grant Smith was the drummer for the first couple of years. Grant went on to form the popular Toronto rock-soul outfit “Grant Smith and the Power” that had a hit with a cover of Jackie Edwards’ “Keep On Running” (previously a big hit for The Spencer Davis Group). Grant Smith & The Power opened for The Hollies and Spanky & Our Gang at Toronto’s O’Keefe Centre on March 17, 1968. The following month, the band headed off for another US trip, supporting the likes of Janis Joplin, Traffic and Rare Earth.
