The Bluesmen Revue formed in Ontario, Canada, in the early '60s, first performing in clubs under the group name Sally and the Bluesmen. Members were lead singer Kenn Allison, bassist Jim Chapman, guitarist Dave Partridge, drummer Paul Kersey, and keyboardist Dave Baker. The little-known group, with it's mixtures of blues and soul, released a moderately successful single in 1968, "Spin the Bottle." Afterwards the band toured a little, making it across into the United States. A short time later, the members decided to call it quits, most going on to work with other bands, including Leather and Lace, Juggernaut, and the Hunt.
