One of the very best bands playing original music in Vancouver in 1971 thru 1972 was Access Junction.  They played all over the city and recorded a legendary tape at Aragon studios (soon to be Mushroom) in 1972.  They were Lloyd Allen...guitar,vocals, songwriter/Dan Smith... lead guitar/Bob Popowich... left-handed precision bass and vocals/David Anderson... drums and vocals/Al Jacobs... keyboards, vocals,songwriter.  They were known for ending their rocking sets with the cosmic rock instrumental...STORM.
