Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers (funk, soul, R&B)

American & Canadian soul group recording for Motown in the late 1960's, based in Vancouver, BC. Bobby Taylor met Little Daddie & The Bachelors in San Francisco in the early 1960's. In Vancouver the band, after several name changes, received their break as Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers. On Barry Gordy Jrs' Gordy label they released one album, titled Bobby Taylor And The Vancouvers (1968), from which the single "Does Your Mama Know About Me," peaked at #29. While recording at Motown Bobby Taylor handled the leads, while Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong) and Wes Henderson played guitar. Eddie Patterson played bass and Ted Lewis sat behind the drums.
