Program Title: NewFound Records -- EP. 675 -- NL's Top Albums of Yesteryear (Conclusion)
Description: What's your pick for the greatest Newfoundland & Labrador oldies album?

Throughout 2014, Newfoundland's classic rock radio station, K-Rock 97.5 FM, counted down the Province's Top 50 Greatest Albums. 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."

I decided to have a bit of fun with K-Rock's 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.

Last week on NewFound Records, I began playing a track from each of those oldies albums, beginning with #17 and concluding with #9. So this week we pick up where we left off, beginning with #8 & finishing with The Big #1. Along the way, you'll hear from Dick Nolan, Figgy Duff, Thomas Trio & The Red Albino, Buddy Wasisname & The Other Fellers, and more!
