Program Title: NewFound Records -- Ep. 674 -- NL's Top Albums of Yesteryear Part 1
Description: Throughout 2014, Newfoundland's classic rock radio station, K-Rock 97.5 FM, counted down the Province's Top 50 Greatest Albums. On their website K-Rock said the final list was...

"...tabulated from your votes! It’s important to note that this is a fun countdown and is by no means definitive. Just a vehicle to get people talking about local music and have some fun discussing the great music this province has to offer."

So I decided to take K-Rock up on their offer and have a bit of fun with their Top 50 albums. I was curious to know how many of them originated in the pre-digital years of Newfoundland and Labrador's music scene. So I picked through the Top 50 and came up with a list of 17 albums that were originally released on vinyl or cassette tape. I'll count down those 17 vintage greats during the next two episodes of The NewFound Records Radio Hour, and I'll play a track from each album!

There's a head-spinning variety of genre's in Part One... everything from Minnie White to Da Slyme! So keep you gravol close by, and tune in to NewFound Records for Part One of NL’s Top Albums of Yesteryear!
