"Our association with A&M has already begun to bear fruit with the initial release by Valdy. After meeting with each distributor, I am more confident than ever that Haida Records will be an influence on the national record scene."--Keith Lawrence, President Haida Records


"Keith Lawrence has shown he has a keen ear for talent and can direct it to its full potential."--Gerry Lacoursiere, Managing Director A&M Records Canada


Haida Records and A&M Records of Canada entered a distribution agreement in July 1972. Jerry Moss negotiated and completed the deal. A&M would handle all sales through its Toronto office. The agreement ran through 1973.

Haida had also signed a rock group named Spring from Vancouver. A single with the song title "So Far Away" written by Terry Frewer (formerly with Spring) was planned for a February 1973 release. It was never released.
