You can see instantly from the songs Gary Gale is playing
on his squeeze box, these are the exact classic and traditional country
songs that have been so rudely pushed aside for today’s non-country
music called country. Gary makes his home in Toronto, Canada, although
he was born in Newfoundland.  He does have a full time job driving truck
for Maple Lodge Farms, but he’s never far from his accordion.  As a
matter of fact the photo on the rear of the CD shows him with accordion
in hand right next to the rig he drives for Maple Lodge Farms.  This CD
is all instrumentals, but they are incredibly well done.  Gary added a
little drum, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, and bass   (and sometimes a
super good fiddle (especially good on “Ashes of Love”) and steel) to the
overall mix and that makes it incredibly easy to listen to.  Another
Newfoundlander, Michael T Wall has already nominated Gary for our Old
Time Country Music Hall of Fame, and I can’t think of anyone more
deserving that can play so many of America’s favorite country music
songs on the accordion. “Walk Through This World” is dedicated to his
wife Anne, and it’s very well played.  Gary records for Heritage Music a
nice record company in Toronto.  If you like good accordion music done
in the old style with a special ‘touch’ to make it very very likable,
this is the CD for you.  Not only will Gary Gale’s name go into
consideration for Hall of Fame honors, I am forwarding this CD to the
Rural Roots Music Commission for their take on this really really good
accordion presentation.  Keep it up Gary, you’re a very gifted musician.
