This was the third version of a Canadian, Vancouver-based group previously known as the Classics and the Collectors. Claire Lawrence (woodwind, harmonica, vocals), Bill Henderson (guitar, recorder, vocals), Glenn Miller (bass, vocals) and Ross Turney (drums) abandoned the latter name in 1971 and embarked on a new direction. Chilliwacks debut album acknowledged this transition by including a restructured version of Seventeeth Summer, a track previously associated with the Collectors. Their third release, All Over You, provided a major Canadian hit single in Ground Hog, and Chilliwack subsequently became one of the countrys most popular home-grown talents. Their often melodious hard rock was best heard on Dreams Dreams Dreams, but inconsistent material and an unstable personnel (Henderson became the lone original member) hampered a wider success.
