Nic Jones' 'Penguin Eggs' LP was first released on Topic Records in June 1980 to great critical acclaim. The album continues to be a mainstay of the Topic Records catalogue, consistently repressed on CD and vinyl, and available digitally, but Nic's music has never been released on a single, until now.
The perfect combination of guitar, voice and recording technique, 'Canadee-I-O' is the first track on 'Penguin Eggs', showcases Nic's infectiously rhythmic guitar-style and vocal strength, and his peerless arrangement was used by Bob Dylan when he recorded a version for his 1992 album 'Good As I Been To You'.
The B-side is a song Nic had been playing and singing as 'The Flanders Shore' for some years before this recording; 'The Flandyke Shore' is a mysterious and moving tale of love and loss, given poignancy and depth by Nic's unique delivery.
