Merryweather was a late sixties Canadian rock band that relocated to California in the autumn of 1968 .The band was led by Neil Merryweather. Neil Merryweather (born Robert Neilson Lillie on December 27, 1945 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is a Canadian rock singer, bass player and songwriter. The vocal harmony between Neil Merryweather and Lynn Carey (born 1946 in Los Angeles) perked the interest of RCAs A&R staff and they signed the duo. Neil Merryweather and Lynn Carey, using a pool of musicians, recorded the "Vacuum Cleaner" LP for RCA in 1971. The tracks that Neil and Morey produced at Kent Records by Mama & Papa Rock n Family were bought by RCA and featured on the Vacuum Cleaner album. Richardson, Boers and Velker returned to Canada after Ivar Avenue Reunion was completed. Neil brought in Kal David (Illinois Speed Press) and ex-Merryweather band mates Edward Roth and Coffi Hall to finish the record. Merryweather & Carey were featured in Russ Meyers movie The Seven Minutes. The Merryweather & Carey Vacuum Cleaner album cover was painted on the side of The Whiskey. Merryweather & Carey never gave a live performance. After this album Neil and Lynn formed Mama Lion.
