Half Past Midnight: The Staccatos and Beyond - Five Man Electrical Band

Half Past Midnight: The Staccatos and Beyond

Having released two LPs as The Staccatos, Ottawa, Canada’s FIVE MAN ELECTRICAL BAND launched onto the scene in 1968 with this criminally underrated, psychedelically tinged pop gem.

Reminiscent of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and other like-minded bands, Five Man Electrical Band developed into one of Canada’s best-known groups, and their Capitol 45 of ‘Half Past Midnight’ sold over 25,000 copies--in Canada alone!

Led by LES EMMERSON, Five Man Electrical Band is today best known for their 1971 anti-establishment anthem ‘Signs.’ The Billboard # 3 single went on to sell over a million and a half copies.

This first-ever CD issue of their long-out-of-print Capitol LP is supplemented by rare Staccatos 45s, none of which have ever been issued on CD.

The 16-page colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of original band members.
