He also followed Toronto local rock groups with great interest, i.e. Ugly Ducklings, Stitch In Tyme, The Paupers, The Band, McKenna Mendelson Mainline and other local Toronto bands. He was and still is also a great fan of R & B music such as the likes of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and James Brown, etc. Sheldon has been buying records for his own pleasure since the early sixties which was his inspiration for starting this very eclectic music store.”
