One of you here on my friends list here turned me on to Great Big Sea a while ago, I can't remember who it was - but I've always loved folk, celtic and sea songs anyway, so it was a no-brainer for me. I enjoyed it and other albums by them are now on my wishlist for eventual purchase. As a matter fact, when I went out on the R/V Jordan a couple of years ago, it wound up being part of our soundtrack while we were tagging sharks, as we took turns playing peoples iPods over the PA system while we were working.

Amazon has a lot of free stuff every week, and I've enjoyed quite a few of their compilations with new (or new-to-me, anyway) artists. Lately, I been listening to an album by Sister Hazel, which really reminds me of Great Big Sea, although in reviews, I also see comparisons to the Eagles, the Doobie Brothers and Tom Petty (which I really don't see). I know they've been around for awhile, but this is the first time I've ever really listened to them, and boy have I missed out. It's a completely free download from Amazon right now, so go get it and give it a listen! Hope you enjoy...

Might have been me! Either way I agree, Great Big Sea are wonderful.

I think it probably was - hope this can return the favor!

(Heh, love the icon!)
