Subject: Heartbreak Hill CD
From: CET
Date: 01 Jun 09 - 08:53 PM

I am trying to get my hands on a copy of a Canadian CD from 1998, now out of print alas, called Heartbreak Hill by a band of the same name. This was, I think, the first recording for Jenny and Dan Whiteley. I recently heard Jenny sing a song from this CD called "John Tyrone" that I really want to learn. Unfortunately, even she doesn't have a copy any more. Does anybody out there have a copy they would be interested in selling?

Aengus Finnan,
Fool's Gold
(Shelter Valley, 2000)

It's "John Tyrone" on that CD.

Thanks for the tip about Aengus Finnan. Jenny Whitely has a regular gig at the Living Room, the upstairs bar at the Mansion on Princess Street, Kingston, and I have spoken to her a few times there, which is how I know she doesn't have a copy of the CD. It seems we share a taste for violent death in songs, but she is a very well adjusted person all the same.

My only reservation about John Tyrone is that the protagonist is supposed to be a veteran of WW1, and the action happens when he would have a relatively young man, but the song mentions him driving a pick up truck. Does anybody know when pick up trucks became common in rural areas? I suspect not before a WW1 veteran would have been well into middle age.

I think Wikipedia covers the development adequately.
