Reiver 2 Lyr: Farewell to Rhondha / Farewell to the Rhondda (53* d) RE: Lyr: Farewell to Rhondha / Farewell to the Rhondda 09 Oct 04

Here are the songs from the Oceans Apart CD (The Maiden Voyage of Oceans Apart). Lots of Sea songs as you can see.

1) The Man From Tralee (Martyn Travis)
2) Bonnie Heilen' Laddie (Traditional)
3) Take Her in Your Arms (Andy M. Stewart)
4) Hornpipe Set - Liverpool/Good Natured Man/Rights of Man/Coolies (Traditional)
5) Take Me Home (Edwards-Hand)
6) Bluenose (Dave Martins)
7) Mawl a Marwnad Afan [In Praise and Lamentation for Afan](John Good)
8) Maui Medley - Rolling Down to Old Maui/Mingulay Boat Song/Coolies Reel (Traditional)
9) Farewell to the Rhondda (F. Hennessy/Noel McLaughlin)
10) Ton Alarch [Swan Song] (Traditional)
11) The Mary Ellen Carter (Stan Rodgers)
12) Baban Newydd [New Baby in the Tribe](John Good)/Queen of All Argyle (Andy M. Stewart)
13) Safe in the Harbor (Eric Bogle)

Afan was a "pan Celtic" band that John started in Phoenix. It's defunct now as the bagpiper moved away. Hence the song.

I'm going to start a new thread regarding The Man From Tralee which is my favorite song from this album (along with Mary Ellen Carter and Farewell to the Rhondda). I don't find The Man From Tralee in the DT, and I think it should be if I can get all the words.

Oceans Apart website is at: but is seems to be down right now for some reason.

Susanne: Thanks for the note about Dave Burns pronouncing Rhondda correctly. I'll have to give John a bit of teasing about that next time I see him.

And Chris in Wheaton, talking about no modesty, I finally got a photo posted at Jeff's Mudcat Rogues' Gallery.
