Album Notes
For years, the Rhinos have been "celtifying"* songs we like and putting our own spin on them. Since we started doing it, people have been telling us we should record them. It had gotten to the point where we had some really good songs in the set that we loved playing and that we felt needed to be recorded. And so, one weekend on the way to Moose Jaw, the idea of "The Second Set" was born.

1. Knockbacks in Halifax
A great song by Weddings, Parties, Anything and one of our first cover songs. It’s all about the perils of the bar scene and why the decision to head to the pub is always the wiser choice.

2. Sleepy Maggie
This great East Coast traditional fiddle tune pairs up very nicely with Knockbacks.

3. Solsbury Hill
A song by Peter Gabriel that we had flirted with playing for years; it was a favourite song to warm up with at shows, then Dale bought himself an octave mandolin for Christmas and we needed a song to justify its use. A dance floor hit.

4. Am I Ever Gonna See your Face Again
This has been a favourite song of Blair’s since he was a DJ. We tried it once as a rocker and it died out of the gate. A little while back, we stripped it down, gave it a bit of a country feel and the crowd hasn't stopped yelling along since.

5. Love Vigilantes
A 2nd generation cover, as we got the idea from the Oysterband who was covering New Order. One of our all-time favourite songs to play.

6. Street of Dreams
Another nod to the Oysterband, this time one of their own. It’s a song we started playing just for us, and now it’s loved by all. One of the pretty songs we do and a crowd favourite.

7. Chemical Worker Song
Not exactly a cover, but more a trad with a creamy cover filling. This song has grown and mutated into a beast all its own. It's just a pity that there's no way to record a beer chugging contest on a CD.

Second Set is one party you won’t want to end. SOCIABLE!
**** out of *****
Second Set offers “celtified” covers and traditional numbers recorded live at Shannon’s Irish Pub. Selections include songs from Weddings, Parties, Anything, Angel City, New Order and the Oyster Band. The Guinness fueled five piece really gets pumpin’ on Peter Gabriel’s Solsbury Hill and raise the bar even higher with the funkified Chemical Worker Song featuring snippets of the Mission Impossible Theme, White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army and Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song! Along with the inspired interpretations the Dust Rhinos showcase their solid rhythm section and the intoxicating fiddle playing of both Dale Brown and Dave Bart while vocalist/growler Blair McEvoy dons his kilt and leads the thundering herd.

Second Set is one party you won’t want to end. SOCIABLE!

Second set
Having been one of the lucky few who were invited to atend the recording of this CD I can tell you this disc captures the true sound of the band. They have to be one of the best party bands around. If you ever get a chance to see this band you won't be disapointed.
