Product Description

After almost twenty years of writing, recording, producing music and fronting such bands as The Punters and The 8 Track Favourites Larry Foley has emerged to put his stamp on a body of work which is quickly establishing him as a solo performer. “Come Along With Me Bys” a new compilation is a reflection of his roots and his love of a good song. The album features a new song “Boats To Build” as well as many Newfoundland standards. Included on this CD are 3 songs from the pen of Ron Hynes “Sonny’s Dream”, “St. John’s Waltz” & “Back Home On The Island” Ron was a good friend of Larry, and his rendition of these songs would make Ron proud. The vast majority of these songs are very well known in Newfoundland, such as “Signal Hill”, “Newfoundland Blessing”, “Fisherman’s Boy”, “Fiddler’s Green” & “A Couple More Years”. “Gulf Of Mexico” a Steve Earle song describes the perils of drilling in the ocean for oil, as we saw in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and is poignant to Newfoundland as we have oil drilling in the ocean off Newfoundland. “Ramblin’ Boy” is a tribute to Larry’s friend Dermot O’Reilly of the band “Ryan’s Fancy” who unfortunately passed away way too early.
