About Us AMG Records

A nine song collection of this treasured legendary performer and eight time Juno Award winner's life experiences, from the corner of Haight and Ashbury streets all the way to Gordon Lighfoot's new biography "Lightfoot", "Good as Gold" says it all

Brian Good teams together with producer Stacy Heydon to release his new solo record Good As Gold.  Below is some of the history of Brian credited by Discogs and Wikipeda

The twin brothers Brian and Bruce Good recorded one album with James Ackroyd as James and The Good Brothers in 1971 with members of The Grateful Dead. As Larry Good joined his
brothers they became The Good Brothers. In the 90's nephew Travis Good (The Sadies) replaced Larry and they became The Goods. In the 2000's Larry returned. In 2013 they recorded an album "The Goods Family Album" with members of The Good Brothers and The Sadies.

The Good Brothers are a Canadian country, bluegrass and folk music group originating from Richmond Hill, Ontario . The band's core members are Brian Good (guitar), his twin brother Bruce Good ( autoharp ) and younger brother Larry Good ( banjo ).

Brian and Bruce Good initially joined guitarist James Ackroyd to form the band James and the Good Brothers in 1967. Their self-titled album was released on Columbia Records in 1971. After a tour itinerary throughout North America, including a Toronto concert opening for Grand Funk Railroad , the Goods wished to return to Canada while Ackroyd sought to continue in the United States.

In 1973, younger brother Larry Good joined the twins to form a new band which first performed 14 May 1974 in Toronto at The Riverboat club. Since then, the band has extensively toured Canada, United States and Europe. Their role in Canadian music was strengthened by winning the Juno Award for Country Group or Duo for eight consecutive years from 1977 [1] to 1984.

In 1980, the group signed to Solid Gold records. Their first two singles were covers - Van Morrison 's Brown Eyed Girl , and Ace 's How Long . While the latter single failed to chart, its b-side, an original song called Hot Knife Boogie , from their Live LP, recorded at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern (as were both sides of the former single) and featuring The Powder Blues Band , was popular on college campus radio stations, and received some play on FM rock stations like Toronto's Q107 [2] [3] . It would later be included on their 2008 compilation LP, Restricted Goods

The Good Brothers were supplemented by other musicians such as John P. Allen ( fiddle ) and Bruce's son Travis Good of The Sadies (guitar and mandolin ). Travis was a regular member of The Good Brothers when Larry took a leave of absence throughout the 1990s.

The 1988 single entitled "You Won't Fool This Fool This Time" was written by Bernie LaBarge . It reached No. 14 on the Canadian country charts.

In 1996 the Good Brothers provided entertainment at the Queen's Park Provincial Legislature's Canada Day celebrations in Toronto, Ontario. [4]

In 2003 the Good Brothers performed at the Palmer Rapids Twin Festival, in Palmer Rapids, Ontario. [5]

In 2006 the band released a gospel album, Blind Faith , and then headed out on their 29th tour of Europe.
