Album Review
Reviewed 2011-04-11 
The late Canadian singer/songwriter showcased with his wonderful maritime folk songs. Story songs of hardworking men and women and a dying way of life. Described as “the Canadian Woody Guthrie.” With acoustic folk instruments. A Cape Breton type sound. Great stuff. He died in 1983 in an airplane fire.

*1. Upbeat toe-tapper with great strings. Bright & catchy.
2. Rich vocals in the downtempo ode to a dying life.
3. Warm and lovely downtempo song w/sweet strings. Sad.
4. Lazy sweet folk waltz w/a nostalgic air.
*5. Recorded live, a capella track for solo voice & chorus. Mid.
6. Upbeat maritime reel w/a warm and catchy sound.
7. Slow and sad song of the fishing industry.
*8. Slow and sad, heartbreaking ode to old men & old ships.
9. Relaxed and sweet country folk love song.
*10. Gorgeous a capella track. When Canadians were asked by the CBC
to vote for an alternate national anthem, this won hands-down. Slow.
11. Downtempo song of a lock-keeper and his duties.
*12. Midtempo, solid toe-tapper song w/some great string accents.
13. Slow and sad tale of a lost ship and a broken man.
14. Nostalgic strings anchor this country folk tale of farming.
15. Warm vocals, sweet strings, a slow and reflective story.
*16. Upbeat strings, story of a sinking ship.
