A Foot in Cold Water - s/t 1972

Canadian rock band A Foot in Cold Water was formed in Toronto in 1971. They are best known for the song "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want", which was a Canadian hit single in 1972, and again in 1974.
Formed from the remnants of three bands, Lords of London, Island, and Nucleus. The band's first album, A Foot in Cold Water was released in 1972 with the song "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want" which reached no. 25 on the Canadian charts. In 1973, the band released their second album, The Second Foot in Cold Water which spawned the singles "(Isn't Love Unkind) In My Life" (#34), and "Love is Coming" (#27). In 1974, the band released a third album All Around Us which contained a shortened version of "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want)" which again, made the Canadian singles chart. The song was later covered by the Heavy Metal band Helix, in 1984.
The band released one more single "Midnight Lady" before their label, Daffodil Records filed for bankruptcy in 1975, leaving the band without a label.
The single "Breaking Through" was released in 1977, but it was not a success and the band folded.
