Various Cover Story

This compilation features Newfoundland artists covering other Newfoundlander songs. For example, Great Big Sea and Thomas Trio get covered by Spunk and Trimmed Navel Beef. The comp is quite varied but the majority tends to be in the pop/punk/garage vein. The some of the recording quality is little suspect but does add to the sound of a band like Dog Meat BBQ. Enjoyable notables include: Ritchie and The Ravens providing some much needed ska and The Planks ripping out a Celtic-inspired number. If you are not familiar with the material being covered it doesn’t really matter because the songs actually stand out for themselves. A good way to find out what’s hot on the rock! (Alice Productions)
