Holy Cow – Four Big Hits

Holy Cow – Four Big HitsThe Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Flipping through a record bin, and you stop you a cover with a redneck, a guy who looks like he could costar along Bronson Pinchot in “Perfect Strangers” and then Marv from “Home Alone” – are you really going to pass that up? The bands name is... Read More »

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...

Jeff Kimball ‎– “The Jeff Kimball Show”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So, initially my friend had given me this album because hey, it’s a guy with a big afro and equally big lapels. Then I heard it. Then I listened again, and again, and again.

Ralph Carlson & Country Mile ‎– “Thanks For The Dance”

Ralph Carlson & Country Mile ‎– “Thanks For The Dance”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Out of the people on the cover I have a hard time deciding who is Ralph Carlson, I’m guessing the dude with the hat.

The Bobby Lalonde Band – “Forty Shades of Blue”

The Bobby Lalonde Band – “Forty Shades of Blue”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  So Bobby Lalonde is the most local anyone can get to me, and by that I mean when I bought two of his records he was literally a 15 minute drive from where I lived. Now, there is one thing about this record, due to edge warp... Read More »

Gene MacLellan – “Gene MacLellan”

Gene MacLellan – “Gene MacLellan”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes:  “Gene MacLellan is rolling down Highway 401. Alone. He is returning from one of his eating-money legion hall dates in a forgotten northern Ontario town; a stand by guitarist with a country group that never did have a name. It is 2 a.m. when he dozes of, careens to the... Read More »
