Absolutely Right
Five Man Electrical Band - Coming of Age Canadian
It wasn’t long before American music industry heavyweights began to take notice of five Canadians who had come to California to strike gold. They could see this was a band to be reckoned with. Exhaustive American tours with groups like The Allman Brothers, Edgar Winter, Sly And The Family Stone and Rare Earth so sharpened their skills that they were ready to take on the world when “Signs” exploded on American radio, soaring to the top of the U.S. Billboard Charts.

“Signs” went to #1 in Australia for 2 months and was huge Canada and Europe. A string of hits followed: “Absolutely Right”, “Money Back Guarantee”, “Moonshine (friend of mine)”, “Werewolf”, “I’m A Stranger Here” and a slew of others but the hit that truly places the band on hallowed ground in music history is “Signs”. Tesla scored a huge hit with a cover of the song on their album “Five Man Acoustical Jam” in the ‘90’s and more recently Fat Boy Slim had a hit called “Don’t Let The Man Get You Down” based mostly off the now unforgettable line…… “And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply”.
