Paul Henry Dallaire ‎– “Princess Maggie Of The North / Goin Back To Moosonee”

The Sleeve:

The Liner/Sleeve Notes:

Personal Review:
 This one comes from Paul Henry Dallaire of Timmins, a local(ish) musician and former funeral director.
 The A-Side is “Princess Maggie of the North” and it opens a bit weird with some light drumming and some inaudible spoken word part, Paul Henry begins to sing as the music begins and his singing is rather good, a bit reminiscent of Johnny Cash, but then it goes back into that inaudible spoken word part, and it’s a little odd, but then Paul Henry goes back to singing, and the song is really good, except those inaudible spoken word parts done over harmonica now, and I really don’t know what he is saying. It’s as if two people are going on this one, Paul Henry’s vocals fade in and out over this spoken word part, and every time it gets back to Paul Henry is great. This is a fine example of good quality Canadian country music.

 The B-Side opens with “Goin Back to Moosonee” and at first it has a bit of dead air, which makes me think it might include that spoken word part, but nope, it goes into some real good country music, it’s upbeat and Paul Henry delivers this song amazingly. I really want to get more of his records, this is really good music. I can’t complain when listening to this music, it’s really good. The guitar playing on this song is fantastic too. Then Paul Henry is joined by a female vocalist who sings on the chorus, and she’s pretty good, and Paul Henry keeps delivering on his fantastic music and it’s outstanding, this music is great. The B-Side is definitely my favorite of the two tracks on this 45.

    This is Cree Indian language repeating what I say.
    Xavier Sutherland was the transalator.

    It was recorded live at Therialut High School on stage.

  • Tate says:

    Thank you Paul for the clarification on the spoken word parts, and the bits of information. It’s not always easy to get all the info on the records, and sometimes the records aren’t exactly the cleanest copies. Would you happen to have anymore of your records?

  • paul henry dallaire says:

    Yes I do, if you check my facebook page you can hear some of my latest stuff such as don’t sleep at the Palestine Hotel/Anti war song and others

  • Yes I have a few 45’s and some albums of the passive Canadian left

  • Tate says:

    Are you willing to sell (or pass on) any of the 45’s / LPs you may still have?

  • Maybe. I have about a dozen Passive Canadian albums for any collector and only a few 45’s and one King of the Ottawa city cowboys

  • Ginette Laflamme says:

    I do have a 45 rpm record by PAUL HENRY and the NORTH COUNTY BOYS SINGS Side 1 GOING BACK TO MOOSONEE (on the banks of ole james bay) Side 2 EVELYNA any information you can give me about this record I would very much appreciate and the value of it thank you so much

  • Hi Ginette.
    The copy you have was probably recorded live at the Theriault High School in Timmins.

    If there’s a jumble of words you can’t understand it’s because Xavier Sutherland was translating in Cree what I was saying in English so it makes it quite unique in that sense I’d say.
    He died in a plane crash a few years later.
    Any other question ?
