FRED LAVERY and ROAD
JOHN ALLAN CAMERON
BUDDY and the BOYS
Cape Breton By Request Volume 2, as the title suggests, features many of the most popular recordings to come out of Cape Breton in recent years. This collection was assembled based on popular requests at music stores and on local radio. Many of the tracks are no longer available as the original releases are "out of print" or difficult to find.
This volume combines old favourites such as Plain Ole Miner Boy and The Legend Of Kelly's Mountain with such contemporary classics as Matt Minglewood's Me and the Boys and J.P. Cormier's Another Morning. Here, on CD for the first time, are Sam Moon's Midday Matinee, Miller's Jug's Ghost of Bras d'Or and Fred Lavery's Song For Noel.
Also featured are Doris Mason with Leon Dubinsky's anthemic One World (a worthy follow-up to Rise Again), Cheticamp's Ronald Bourgeois with Amene le vent and Howie MacDonald's classic fiddle treatment of The Skye Boat Song. Other artists include musical legends Rita MacNeil and John Allan Cameron, McGinty, Cyril MacPhee, Maxine MacLeod and Buddy and the Boys.
This series of compilations are musical collections aimed at preserving Cape Breton recordings and promoting local singers, songwriters and musicians. These songs are an integral part of the island's popular culture: some have reached an international audience; others are local favourites. All offer a glimpse, a musical snapshot, of that magical kingdom known as Cape Breton Island.
