The WGB is pleased to present it’s first classic album of 1978 - Wonderful Grand Band.Recorded at Clode Sound Studio in Stephenville, fresh from the Root Seller TV Series, this is the sound and musicianship we came to know and love in the 80's in the sensationally successful TV show WGB.
Here on CD for the first time is this vintage recoeding of the WGB with some of their signature hits including the 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 inimitable fiddle of Kelly Russell who also left the group shortly after this recording.
Re-mastered in 2010, this is a collector’s dream and a treat for any fan of the Wonderful Grand Band or Newfoundland music.
