Product Description

"Home & Native Land" brings a change in musical direction away from the blues and towards a more eclectic mix of styles. There is a heavy artistic slant, influenced by patriotism and naked women. The new direction was apparent on both the cover, adorned by a classic David Andoff drawing, and in the music. Recorded in San Francisco with the Tower of Power horns, the LP was notably different than either Stink or Blues.

Even into the '90's, long after Kensington Market disbanded in 1969, DJs were still saying this was one of, if not THE, very BEST albums ever to come out of Canada! The genius of Keith McKie, singer/songwriter, teamed up with legendary Luke Gibson, singer/songwriter from Luke and The Apostles fame, supported by an amazing group of talented musicians, some jazz people, and produced by the late great Felix Pappalardi, more notably of Cream and Mountain fame, produced something we have not heard before or since. The word was they were working on a 3rd album when they pulled the plug on the band. Sad when you think of what might have been, considering how unique and creative their sound was progressing from their surprising debut album "Avenue Road" [which produced 2 hits before the CRTC was around to insist so much radio play had to be Canadian content!] through to Aardvark. Keith and Luke are still performing together after all these years and definitely worth seeing! That voice of Keith's hasn't changed a bit - still one of the greatest voices ever to sing pop, rock, or just about anything!

HASH(0xa46eb2e8) out of 5 stars Greatest Unknown Band May 8 2008
By Tom H. Stegehuis - Published on Amazon.com
Poor Kensington Market. They had two albums, one in 1968 and one in 1969.
Although signing with a big label (Warners/Seven Arts), neither album got
any promotion from the label, save a couple minor articles in local newspapers. Although Avenue Road has at least a few excellent/really good
songs, AArdvark is clearly the best. It may take a few listenings to start liking it; it's kind of low-key, but once those songs get into your
head, They won't let go. Still listening, listening--------

HASH(0xa46ee3f0) out of 5 stars Have original vinyl record Aug. 4 2009
By Andrea Bednarek - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this record back in 1969. I had never heard of the group but loved the cover and noticed that Felix Pappalardi produced it so having extra money bought it. I loved it from the start very nice well crafted songs that sound a bit british. I would recommend it to everyone as it holds up well and not at all dated.
