Dick Nolan-The Best of Dick Nolan In Review
First Ever CD by Dick Nolan Released by Sony/BGM
By John Gavin, Monday, January 30, 2006


Legendary Newfoundland artist, the late Dick Nolan pioneered the Newfoundland ASDickNolanBestof.jpg country sound, taking it all the way to the Grand Ole Opry, and becoming the first Newfoundland recording artist to be awarded a platinum record and a Juno nomination. Sony/BMG just released a 17 track CD, in which Dick Nolan hand picked all the songs before his untimely death in December 2005, that represented the best of his recordings for RCA. The songs have been re-mastered from the original vinyl recordings and are now available for the first time on CD.

Here are the song titles:

Home Again This Year

The Fella That Looked Like Me

It's So Old But Ever New In Newfoundland

Japanese Gin

Aunt Martha's Sheep

Little Boats of Newfoundland

Piece of Bologna

Old Newfie Outhouse

Maritime Farewell

The Nine Thirteen

Shift Old Ireland

Me And Brother Bill

Old Flat Rock Hills

C.N. Bus

Thank God We're Surrounded By Water

Baggage Coach Ahead

and bonus track-Aunt Marths's Sheep (Re-recorded version).

This CD is a sure winner and will be a collector's item, being the first ever CD with Dick's music and especially with the songs hand-picked by Dick Nolan himself in 2005. Dick's music will live on with this excellent CD. This CD is for sale in all Wall-Marts across the country.
