The Collectors


from Vancouver BC

The Collectors was a rock band active in the 1960’s. It debuted in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1961 as a house band (the C-FUN Classics) for CFUN-AM radio, and renamed itself as “The Collectors” in 1966. The band featured Howie Vickers on lead vocals, Bill Henderson on lead guitar, lead vocals and keyboards, Clair Lawrence on saxophone, flute, keyboards, harmonica, and vocals, Glenn Miller on bass and vocals, and Ross Turney on drums. In 1968, the group released it’s first self-titled album on the Warner Brothers label, and over the next two years also provided soundtrack music to three Canadian films.

Howie Vickers left the group in 1969,and the remaining members of the band reconstructed themselves as Chilliwack, with Bill Henderson taking over lead vocals. Information from gonegonegone.com
