Just stumbled on this site. Been waiting to say this for over 30 years, but, thanks so much for the music, Bill. I've been a fan of you/Collectors/Chilliwack for a LONG time ... all the way from New York (now L.A.). There was a small group of us in NY in the 70's. which Chilliwack was one of our favorite bands -- and of course, no one else would even had heard of the band (until a couple of the hits) -- who would think all this time later, modern technology would allow this type of communication.
So, again, you brought many moments of joy to my life, and to a few of my friends.
I still am amazed, at where music listening has come to, when I can glance at my iPod, when listening to "Lydia Purple," (an AMAZING tune) and see that great Collectors cover picture on the screen, which in 1975, was such a difficult and prized find for me from the record stores of Manhattan (this actually happened to me on the plane a few weeks ago -- made me smile).
Hope to see a show at some point soon!

Hey,Bill-last month or so,your tune "I Believe" came on the radio(which I never listen to),and just blew me away all over again.I'll admit,I didn't even know it was Chilliwack-it's such a sweet slice of AOR/Westcoast,right up there with Ambrosia,but still with something distinct that makes it Canadian,somehow.I then checked into your discography,and found a wealth of really diverse hits from you guys.I'm sure people have said this to you before,but Chilliwack somehow deserved a greater place in the annals of pop/rock.Anyhow,thanks for the great music & memories!God bless & take care.
