No Change In Me Words & Music by Ron Hynes, Murray McLauchlan As Performed by Allison Crowe You'd shoot off a cannon In the middle of Bond 'attract no attention in downtown St. John's This getting of nowhere is getting to me Wondering where you can go To be all you can be No regular Joe wants to haul up and go and wind up homesick With no one you know Just a smoke and a beer And sports on tv Feeling sorry you left But no choice but to leave No change in the weather No change in me I don't want to leave But you can't live for free And you can't eat the air, you can't drink the sea No change in the weather No change in me You could shoot off a cannon from the top of Long's Hill and a Gulliver's taxi might be all you would kill We were promised the sun The moon and the stars We got weathered old clapboard and salt-rusted cars So let me join in, leaving with all of the rest Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver west Lay down on a sidewalk and kick off and die Watch people not looking As they hurry by No change in the weather and no change in me I don't want to leave But you can't live for free And you can't eat the air, and you can't drink the sea No change in the weather No change in me No change in the weather No change in me I don't want to leave But you can't live for free And you can't eat the air, and you can't drink the sea No change in the weather No change in me

about

The lovely isle of Newfoundland, off Canada’s Atlantic coast, is inspiration for this collection – the newest in the “Vinyl” series from Corner Brook, NL musician Allison Crowe.

Allison’s in harbour with a boatful of tunes reveling in, and revealing, the region’s rich culture and history – stirring music that nourishes heart and soul.

The album opens with "Mice March" and closes with "Russian Dance", both selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” – freshly arranged and performed “trad” style for Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador’s “Ed & Ed’s Newfoundland Christmas Concert”. And between these tracks is a bounty of adventuresome musical ideas – embracing songs of land and sea.

Traditional music, and modern favourites – funny, poignant, earthy and ethereal – all part of the “Newfoundland Vinyl” stage-show lovingly curated and directed by Allison Crowe each Summer at TNL’s Gros Morne Theatre Festival.

The album cover photograph by Allison shows us what she sees at home making music. And the songs themselves let us feel it all, as well. Joys and hardships be tugging on the heart-line first cast by Buddy Wasisname, and true as ever: “You might think she’s rugged and cold, but she’s home, sweet, home to me.”
