Album Notes
"A piece of Canadian Blues history available at last"

During the closing months of 1988 and into early 1989, The Kendall Wall Band spent time in a small 16 track analog recording studio in north Toronto laying down tracks for what they hoped would be their first recording. Somethng that would take them to the next level of their career. They began writing songs and expanded their band into a larger unit for the sessions. The plan, stay true to their traditional blues influences while letting the songwriting take them to new directions.

From the beginning lack of funds, lack of production experience and a difficult studio enviroment hampered their creativity. Through this frustrating sitiuation they forged ahead making sure every sound heard in their heads and every new idea contributed by band members went to tape.

Unfortunately their goals were never achieved. At least that`s the way it seemed at the time. The money ran out, some songs were left unfinished and the final mix was unsatisfactory. The result was a substandard demo that at best could only be used to help book gigs. The tapes went into a drawer and stayed there for the next 24 years.

Gary Kendall always believed that the good music they had envisioned was in those old tapes and someday that music would be brought to the surface bringing the project to a proper completion. In 2012 he enlisted the aid of L. Stu Young, one of the most respected recording engineers in the world and began working on the resurrection of the "almost lost" recordings of The Kendall Wall Band.

Twenty-four years in the making "The Way We Was" is finally ready to presented to the world, sounding as fresh and relevant as it did back in the late 80`s when it was conceived. Living proof that the original vision of this group of young blues musicians was right on track.
