Simon Caine was a short-lived Toronto Obscure Psych Funk band, which recorded a solitary album in 1970. Most of the musicians went on to become top session players on the Canadian music scene throughout the 1970s and 1980s working with the likes of Bruce Cockburn, David Wiffen and Murray McLauchlan. Singer Peter Shields (aka Simon Caine) first came to prominence during 1966 with the group Simon Caine & The Catch, which included bass player Dennis Pendrith, drummer John Savage, keyboard player Tom Sheret and guitarist Bill Palmer. Pendrith left in the summer for five months to play with Luke & The Apostles but rejoined that autumn. Peter Shields formed a new version of Simon Caine (dropping The Catch) in October 1969 with original members Bill Palmer, John Savage and Dennis Pendrith, who had spent the interim playing with Olivus, 3’s a Crowd and Ugly Ducklings spin-off group, GNU. The new members were pianist Pat Godfrey from The Diplomats and wind instrumentalist Bruce Pennycook The new line up signed to RCA Victor and issued a lone single, “Walked Out The Door”, written by Pat Godfrey and Dave Richardson, which coincided with an appearance at Toronto’s Electric Circus (December 12–14, 1969). The following year, the group gigged intensively throughout southern Ontario and also completed sessions for an album at RCA Recording Studios in Toronto with producer George Semkiw, which was released in October 1970. That same month, the band returned to Toronto’s live scene with a show at the Night Owl, followed by an appearance at Ryerson Great Hall alongside Leigh Ashford on Nov 6, 1970. Simon Caine should have seen the new year in at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens, appearing at a prestigious show that also featured Johnny Winter, Rare Earth, Poco, The James Gang and fellow Canadians Chilliwack, but a disagreement over the fee meant that the band didn’t appear.
