CHIMO - Sheba

Chimo! (Inuit for "Hello") was a Canadian rock band of the late '60s and early '70s, evolving from the Georgian People in 1969. The band recorded an album for Revolver Records.
The band played Toronto's Mapleleaf Gardens with sister group Chicago to a full house, opened the second day of the Festival Express with The Band, Janis Joplin, etc. that was held at CNE Stadium on June 28, 1970. They also appeared at the Midsummer Night Rock Festival at Michigan State Fairground in Detroit on July 4 alongside shock-rocker Alice Cooper, The Electric Circus, and others.
Following the release of the band's album in November 1970, Andy Cree left (later to do sessions for the likes of David Wiffen and spend several years with Anne Murray's band) and was replaced by former member Pat Little, who had spent the interim doing sessions for Van Morrison, Peter, Paul & Mary and playing with a reformed Luke & The Apostles. The new line up was responsible for one lone single, Little's "In The Sea"and "Mowbray Cross Country Man" written on a flight to Rome to negotiate a European tour and to secure a song writing contract with Chapel Publishing in Milano (Milan) with Mowbray's previous assistant and former drummer Silvino Desemoni,and bass player Franco Deljudich from a 1967 Italian tour with Nicola Di Bari and RCA-Victor/Rome.
