   In the early 1970’s drummer Dave James rehearsed material by Chicago, Ides Of March and Lighthouse with a large group of musicians. A couple of one-off gigs were played under the name of “Clodure” (Dave James (Drums), Paul MacDonald (Bass), Jim Rice (Guitar), Gordie Neal (Vocals), Dave Marshall (Sax), Leslie Allt (Sax, Flute), John Roy (Trombone) and Hal Beckett (Trumpet) at a J.L Ilsley High School variety show and using the name “Tail” (Dave James (Drums), Eric LeBlanc (Bass), Jim Rice (Guitar), Leslie Allt (Sax, Flute) and John Roy (Trombone, Piano)) for a gig at a junior high grad. Out of these gigs the original “Track” was born in the fall of 1972.

   At this time most of the members were in their last year of high school. They played the junior high school circuit through the winter of 1973 and spent the summer playing the Shore Club in Hubbards, Saint Mary’s Boat Club, The Waegwaltic Club amongst other places. They covered a lot of material by Chicago. The band broke-up at the end of the summer as several members were heading off to university.

   Dave James resurrected the band and led it until he left for Humber College in Toronto in 1975. Eventually guitarist Doug Davison assumed leadership of the band and led it until the band broke-up in the mid 1980’s.
