Description & Features+

The WGB is pleased to present its first album "Wonderful Grand Band." Recorded at Clode Sound Studio in Stephenville in 1978, just after the success of "The Root Seller" TV Series, it showcases some exciting musicianship from the pioneer members of the Band and previews the familiar sound of their sensationally successful TV show "WGB." Out of the Archives and here on CD for the first time, this vintage recording of the signature WGB hits includes fiddle tune favourites of Emile Benoit and Rufus Guinchard and the first appearance of "Sonny's Dream" and other Ron Hynes classics. It also features two of the founding members of the WGB, Bawnie Oulton and Bryan Hennessey, who were not on the later shows or records, and the popular fiddle style of Kelly Russell on his only recording with the WGB. Re-mastered in 2010, this is a collector's dream and a treat for any fan of the Wonderful Grand Band or Newfoundland music.
