The CD marks the first time locally made Irish Pipes have appeared on a local Newfoundland CD. The pipes were made by Neal O'Grady of Carbonear which also makes this CD a history maker. The CD will certainly be a Kitchen Party favourite. Tony wrote the songs, Livin In A Syncrude Eye, Pump The Box and Sitting On A Ft. McMurray Bus. All the rest of the traditional tracks were arranged by Tony. He dedicates the CD to all the transient workers both past and present who travelled many miles to earn a living for their families, it just ain't easy and to all the folks he had the fortune and misfortune to meet.

A great CD of Newfoundland music and song and Tony does an outstanding job on all 15 tracks. Atlantic Seabreeze gives the CD top ratings on its ratings list.
