Gary Weeks and Dave Beckett‘s second album contain the original classic recordings of “I May Never See You Again“, “All In The Past Now” and “I Can’t Find The words“.
As live performers, Gary And Dave were hilarious with a song and comedy act that helped ensure their success. They started slowly with their debut single “I’m A Rider“; then their first Axe single in 1971 “Can’t You Do It Now” (AXE 2) and gained momentum with their third “Here It Comes Again“. The fourth “Could You Ever Love Me Again” reached number one on the Top 100 in November 1973 as the album and single charted across Canada – supported by their first cross-Canada tour opening for The Stampeders.
Together, their first album was released in 1974 which included the follow-up success “I Fell In Love With You Sometime“. By late 1974, London Records had released Gary and Dave’s recordings in the United States, the UK and many other countries (reaching #4 in Australia).
Gary Weeks and Dave Beckett took flying lessons while on the road, receiving their pilot licenses and flew for a time for Air Canada between Ottawa and Montreal. Dave has three grown daughters and lives with his second wife Katia in Brazil commuting to South Korea where he is a flying instructor for Boeing. Gary and Claudette have three grown sons and after joining the ministry, served for many years in Ireland and more recently in Toronto.
