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

Paul Henry Dallaire ‎– “Princess Maggie Of The North / Goin Back To Moosonee”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. 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...

Father Robert White ‎– “A Heart That Understands / What Might Have Been”

Father Robert White ‎– “A Heart That Understands / What Might Have Been”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Father Robert White, known for his ridiculously expensive record – “The Reverend in Rhythm” – also, released this little 45 right here. Who woulda thunk?  The A-Side is “A Heart That Understands” – and it’s you basic pop / vocal standard with the backing vocals, and... Read More »

Ronnie Dee & The Brothers III ‎– “Jody / Last Night I Dreamed”

Ronnie Dee & The Brothers III ‎– “Jody / Last Night I Dreamed”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “After 22 years in the music business, Ronnie Dee truly qualifies as a show business veteran.

Danny Deardorff & Marcus Joseph – “Sentimental Lady / Sentimental Lady”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Danny Deardorff is one of the greatest folk singers out there, and here he is with his partner from the LP “Deardorff & Joseph”, Marcus Joseph singing one of my favorite songs, “Sentimental Lady“.  The song opens just like the original, same musical piece and instruments, and...

João Teixeira – “Sara / Adeus Meu Lindo Amor”

João Teixeira – “Sara / Adeus Meu Lindo Amor”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, João was (is) a Portuguese man, living in Montreal, QC and was working entertainment at a restaurant there. He released this single. Unfortunately, I don’t have the pic sleeve.  The A-Side is “Sara” and it’s done on an accordion, and João’s vocals are actually really, really good, the... Read More »

Sheena Easton – “For Your Eyes Only / For Your Eyes Only (Instrumental)”

Sheena Easton – “For Your Eyes Only / For Your Eyes Only (Instrumental)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  To me, this is Sheena Easton’s greatest song ever.  The A-Side is the vocal version, and well, it’s pretty great. The piano playing, her vocals, everything about this song is absolutely fantastic, you would never even believe that this is the theme from a James Bond movie,... Read More »

Claude Scott – “The Edmonton Oilers Theme Song / The Color of Fire”

Claude Scott – “The Edmonton Oilers Theme Song / The Color of Fire”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  This 45 came in a big box of records my landlord had given me.  The A-Side is the theme from the Hockey team ‘Edmonton Oilers’, so therefore, the title is “The Edmonton Oilers Theme” – and well, it’s definitely a late 70’s – early 80’s sound. It’s... Read More »

J.D. Brennan & Gold Fever with the Summer Street Gospel Group – “A Better Way / Driftin’ Away”

J.D. Brennan & Gold Fever with the Summer Street Gospel Group – “A Better Way / Driftin’ Away”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I think I got this one for the van on the cover, and the fact it says ‘Gospel’ – but it really isn’t gospel.  So, the A-Side opens with “A Better Way” – and it’s a pretty rusty sounding bluesy Gospel track, the vocals are alright, and...

Kate Bush – “Babooshka / Ran Tan Waltz”

Kate Bush – “Babooshka / Ran Tan Waltz”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Kate Bush’s “Babooshka” is one of the few Kate Bush songs I like. I love it for how artistic it is. Also got to give credit to Kate Bush for being so creative.  Anyways, so the A-Side is “Babooshka” – it opens with a few simple music... Read More »
