In the process, LP has opened the door to a whole new range of exciting musical possibilities. While those were the hits, however, there was none of the inconsequential fluff that marred many of her other albums. The album went to 1 on both the Canadian country and pop charts where it went double platinumand it hit 2 on the US country chart, going Platinum in the process, the first time she had reached that mark south of the border — all signs of just how strong the album was as a whole.
Somewhere lost in the midst of memory and time is the legend of the Pepper Tree, one of the most successful bands ever to come out of Halifax, Nova Scotia - Jonathan Edwards (2) - Lucky Day (Vinyl. Formed inthe band played their first gig at the Shore Club in Hubbards. Jon Mullane is sort of the John Mellancamp of the Nova Scotia music scene, by which I mean that his early work under a stage name Jonathan M for Mullane, Johnny Cougar for Mellancampwas not terribly good… but he stuck with it, all the while honing his craft as both a songwriter and a performer, just like Mellancamp did.
Often chaotic, her youth included the physical and psychological trauma of surgery for a cleft palate, a first love affair that left her with a child and a broken heart, a marriage breakdown, and numerous frustrating attempts to kick-start a musical career. Ron Foley Macdonald is a film writer and producer, and was the longtime music and theatre critic for The Halifax Daily News. Incorrect in both listing.
You are absolutely correct. We had it as Goodwyn once, but two other times as Goodman! No idea how that happened… but Album) plead too much coffee!! Correction has been made, and thanks for the heads up. This is great, as good a list of top 20 NS albums as there could be given the intractably subjective nature of the subject matter. But we also recognize — as we stated in the intro — that other people will have different opinions.
Missing a lot of my favorites but I guess that just means this province is super talented. Glad I was born here. Yes, quite. Force of habit figure of speech from an old guitarist. Never Hear The End of It, why is this here at all and ranked so high?
No Down at the Khyber? Just not on our list. A lot of food for thought on Album) list. I do love Sloan and your choices are good ones but April Wine just have such an enormously long list of great songs though perhaps not great albums that they end up trumping all other Canadian bands, never mind just Nova Scotia bands. And how radio seems to have forgotten many of their great songs that they did write.
I think Three is his high water mark. I remember when it first came out becoming deeply entralled with it. I never heard anything so original with so many great songs — all the sounds he conjured up. Just amazing. Ironically Rich seems to like to downplay this record — it would be my pick for best record by a Nova Scotian of all time.
I think I would have chosen 2 or 3 other Plaskett albums to be in there and also include a Matt Mays album. As good as Sloan are and they are not the best NS band ever, that honor belongs to April Winethey do not deserve 3 albums in the top Nice job shaking things up here guys. No need to comment on the material or the ranking as these types of lists are always very subjective as you so clearly point out.
You have accomplished what you set out to do, and that is to get people to talk about, and celebrate, the NS contribution to great music of all genres.
Yes, you could have moved a Sloan out to make room for another great release but to what end. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account. You are commenting using your Facebook account.
