Not to be confused with the American act with the same name, the Toronto conglomeration of Alabama was steeped in Cajun and Acadian sounds from the principle songwriting team of Fykes and Knight. The duo had hooked up with McLean and Sembaluk in the early '70's under the Alabama moniker. Sembaluk had been a founding member of Brutus with Walter Zwol. Their recording career was short lived with one album and two singles in 1973 on the Smile label. Sembaluk and Knight would go on to engineer albums by other artists including The Stampeders' 'Hit The Road' in 1976.
