Notes by Alan Mills with song texts in booklet (12 p. : ill.) inserted in original cover
The economy of Newfoundland has been dominated by fishing, and thus this recording consists largely of songs relating to fishing vessels and the hardy men who depended on them. But whaling, sealing, lumbering, and romance are also represented. The recording is a tribute to Gerald Doyle, whose collection of the songs of Newfoundland dominates this recording, a sequel to Alan Mills' earlier "Folk Songs of Newfoundland" (FW06831). On most tracks, Alan is accompanied by accordion, played by Gordon Fleming, and guitar, played by Gilbert Lacombe. Alan Mills (1913-1977) forsook a career in journalism to become a prominent Canadian folksinger, actor, and the host of a folk music radio show for children. His singing may be found in over 20 Smithsonian Folkways recordings, some primarily for adults and others primarily for young people. Liner notes provide a biography of Alan Mills, information on the songs of Newfoundland in general and individually, and complete lyrics of each included song
