Subject: Nova Scotia Songs
From: GUEST,Guest Bagger

A few weeks back, I was trawling through the various threads left on the Mudcat site and half way through one there was mention of a CD that had been produced with all of the best Nova Scotia songs upon it. I know I should've written it down there and then but I simply though, I'll take a look at that later. I have now forgot what the CD was.

Anyone out there who could suggest what this might be? I think Girls of Neil's Harbour was mentioned as being on.

Cheers me dears.

I don't know of any cd that would hold "all of the best" because there are far more songs in Nova Scotia than a cd would hold and "best" is a very subjective term. However, The Girls Of Neils Harbour is a great song!
The Cape Breton Song Collection lists two recordings of it:
The Tarbot Folk Festival Album ( sung by Sam moon, the song's writer)
Breaking Tradition by McGinty ( BT is the album title, not to confuse with the celtic folk band Breaking Tradition.)
Cape Breton Song Collection ISBN 0-9692208-0-4 and its sibling book The Nova Scotia Song Collection ISBN 0-9692208-2-0 perhaps contain some of what you seek and will direct you to what recordings existed at the time of publication but that goes back to the 1980's. There have perhaps been other recordings made in the past 25 years.
There have been compilation releases made by anything from the Nova Scotia Dept. Of Tourism to beer companies and it is possible that one of them that you seek.
Sorry that I can't be of more help!
       Best wishes,
                Sandy

There is a certain compilation that I keep seeing in truck stops, with the title, Songs of Nova Scotia or Best of Nova Scotia, or some such thing.

I have in front of me two cassettes and two c/d titled.
Atlantic Sons and Daughters
A Taste of the Maritimes
A Toast to N.S. Music by Alexander Keith's
Imported From N.S. by Alexander Keith.

None of which refers to the question being asked. I recall a thread that we did talk about the Alexander Keith's c/d's but don't think that the thread started with the Keith's inquiry. I'm lost wish I could help.

Beer,

"A Taste of the Maritimes," is what made me a Tom Lewis fan. I'd never heard him before. They were playing it as the background music in a touristy place in Cape Breton where I was having breakfast in 1996-- I asked about it, and they had it in their gift shop.

Fun album. I've given away many copies of it as gifts over the years.

Track listing:

1. Silver Sea - EVANS & DOHERTY
2. Island Clay - LENNIE GALLANT
3. Ballad of St. Anne's Reel - JAR O'COMFORT
4. Kitty Bawn O'Brian - THE BARRA MACNEILS
5. A Sailor Ain't a Sailor (Last Shanty) - TOM LEWIS
6. The Bluenose - MILLER'S JUG
7. The Rocks of Merasheen - MCGINTY
8. The Little Judique & Paddy Carrey's Fortune - DAVE MACISSAC
9. Look Dear (I Nearly Died) - KENZIE MACNEIL
10. The Island - KENZIE MACNEIL
11. Farewell to Nova Scotia - MILLER'S JUG
12. Sonny's Dream - MCGINTY
13. The Nellie J. Banks - JAR O'COMFORT
14. Marching Inland (Legend) - TOM LEWIS
15. Hugh A. MacDonald's Favourite Polkas - DAVE MACISSAC
16. Balaena - HAL AN TOW
17. Waltzing with Bears - EVANS & DOHERTY

Okay, that's the one that I've seen in all the truck stops ....

Btw, has Tom Lewis ever had any particular connection with NS?

The only connection that I make between Tom Lewis and Nova Scotia is his song HMCS Sackville which is great!

the other rankins also recorded a tape that shold be looked up. rita rankin and friend did it. it is one of the best celtic music tapes i've ever heard.

kenzie macneil did a few grat tapes as well. the compliation listed is good but there are better out there.

there are books published by the government of nova scotia called the sings of ns and songs of cape breton respectively. they are great resourses.

then of course there's john maciain's two cd's fatrewell to nova scotia and the wind that shakes the barley, available whereever you find him busking. that's me folks.they were three tapes that i remixed for the cd market.remember when tapes were how an iterinant shit like me did his opwn music to sell underground) the first two i made out in vancouver and the third in toronto of all the songs that people kept asking"is that on the tape"

i should rerecord them with modern help i found in toronto but sigh i'm getting to old.and i have material for a few more but again....
