The Carnival Connection formed in August, 1967 in Montreal, Canada. Most of the band members came from the disbanded “J.B. & The Playboys”, which became “The Jaybees” (1966) and later “Peter & The Pipers”, before they settle in as “Carnival Connection”. Their only single under that name was “Poster Man / Alfred Appleby”. It was recorded in July 1968 in New York and firstly released there by Capitol Records. Shortly afterwards it was released in Canada, too. Both sides are very good, but the B-side “Alfred Appleby” is a real gem, a blend of psychedelia & baroque-pop.
They split up in early 1969. The band members were: Allan Nicholls (vocals), Bill Hill (guitar), Pete Carson (bass, 1967-68), Gaetan Danis (drums, 1967), J.P. Lauzon (guitar), Nicky Katsos (drums, 1967-69), Les Leroux (bass, 1968-69).
