Subject: Edward Bear

Anyone like Edward Bear?

They were a Canadian band (not a solo artist lol) named after the bear to which was the original name for Winnie the Pooh.  They formed in 1966, and in the 70s, charted a brief run of hits, also finding some success outside of Canada.  Following their break-up in 1974, lead singer Larry Evoy embarked on a solo career

I think I recall seeing them perform on tv in 1972. It was on The Midnight Special or Don Kirshner's In Concert  they did Last Song and it was pretty awesome although I think the song and that performance is seared into my brain as I was watching it at a friends house and we were all under the influence of a powerful psychedlic.      part of my crazy history/past

I'm pretty sure I heard Close Your Eyes at some point but don't remember it.

That being said, I do like Last Song.  :)

I'm not familiar with their other hits.

The only song I know is Last Song and I always wondered what happened to the guy who sang it.  I didn't know Edward Bear was the name of a group.
