The band moved to CD with the release of their third album in 1996 entitled 'Shadows On The Wall'. Roth once again altered the band line-up and was also supported by a host of other musicians including Glen Jessamy, Stefan Janicki, Laura Dunn, Leslie Harwood-Jones, Chantal Legault, Cody Blacksky, Colleen Allen, Tortoise Blue, Mark Bajona, Robert Brockie, Roy Kenner and Maddie Willis.
Roth had most recently uncovered live recordings of the original Bent Wind from Ryerson Polytechnical in 1969 and has released it in 2005 on CD format, remastered.
