Great Stuff - The Songs of Paul "Lolly" Lawton

On July 15, 2005, we learned of the tragic death of our beloved friend Paul “Lolly” Lawton. The loss was unexpected, and although the days and months that followed Lolly’s passing have at times been unbearably sad, there is always a memory of Lolly that comes to mind to lift our hearts and offer us strength.

To have known Lolly was to adore him. He was a genuine, compassionate and spiritual person whose love of life was contagious. He stopped at nothing to make people feel uniquely special and to bring laughter to each day. What was most remarkable about Lolly was his ability to balance his time amongst the things that mattered most to him. He was a loyal supporter of the Everton Football Club (Go Blues!), a committed contributor to a variety of charities and children’s sponsorship programs, an accomplished drummer and percussionist, a devoted member of his faith, a best friend to so many, and a loving son, brother and uncle. It wasn’t until after Lolly passed away that we realised just how much he managed to fit into each day. For this we give thanks to Lolly’s malfunctioning “off-button”.

When we discovered the mini disc containing the songs recorded on this CD, we were once again amazed by our Lolly. We had enthusiastically followed the success of our friend, the drummer, but uncovering his talents as a songwriter has been one of the most poignant gifts he has left us. Through music, Lolly’s greatest passion, he has proven the everlasting nature of love, which lives on and continues to grow even when a body’s journey has ended.

Our fortune is that we will forever have this imprint of Lolly’s powerful soul. His deep connection to God and his guiding energy are embodied in the music he wrote. Our hope is that these songs offer lightness, joy and the courage to pursue any dream imaginable to all that hear them.

Each of the musicians appearing on this CD were dear friends to Lolly, people he admired, respected and felt privileged to play with. We’ve called it “Great Stuff” in memory of the name Lolly gave to the countless compilations of tunes he would spend hours and days preparing for his friends and family.

As Lolly would have wanted, take the time to listen to his words, feel the music and lose yourself for just a little while.

Received in good shape and love it. So much like Paul.
Really do love the CD. I guess my favourite was the song re Everton. Paul was such a diehard fan. It made me chuckle and think of him when he was so young living next door. Thank you.


Great Stuff!!
Great stuff indeed! Soul of everyone especially is brilliant! May u rest in peace Lolly!

Barbara Bruce

Beautiful. Touched me as only an angel could.
I loved that the artists included the sweetness of Lolly's original recordings. From the birth of those rough cuts, great stuff was delivered.


it's given us a great many hours of pleasure together.
I first heard about the cd on the "Vinyl Cafe" on CBC. Since i have recieved the cd, my children and myself have listened to it a lot and enjoyed it a great deal. The man had a lot of talent and like so many others, the world may never get to enjoy all that he had to offer. thank you to the CBC for your dedication to Canadian artists and spreading their talent throughout the listening public.

Kurt Kooyer

Great collection! Very much appreciated Lolly's "intros." The talent of this man, as well as the dedication of his friends, comes through on every song! Thank you for this wonderful tribute!

dennis cantagallo (ten indians)

music as big as his heart
Paul was such a wonderful man to know, one of the only truly honest people i have ever met. This of course permeates through his music and without even knowing Paul, you can tell what a gentle, kind man he was.


Very poignant
I had never heard of Lolly nor the band, till I listened to a Vinyl Cafe show on CBC 2. I had to have the CD. What a talent!

Great Stuff

prompt service, easy sight to use and the CD is wonderful
meaningful lyrics, well worth a careful listen.

Steve& Dorothy

We first met Paul at Conor Byrnes in Seattle, we were the "crowd". The long curly locks and the cider song will be with us forever. It's hard to hear him on this cd knowing he's gone but this is his music and a part of him.

Marian Kemp

I heard about Lolly on CBC Radio one & bought the CD. It's great!
I never heard of Lolly Lawton until about a month ago on CBC Radio One, Vancouver. I ordered the CD and have really enjoyed it. Mr. Lawton seemed very nice and certainly his friends loved him. He was talented, too.

I am sad that I never heard of him until 2 years after his death. Coincidentally, I saw Tim Readman when he opened for The Arrogant Worms in Whistler in (January?, 2007). Met Tim there briefly. 2 degrees of separation, as they say...

Mr. Readman did a great job and so did everyone else. I recommend the CD Great Stuff to all who visit this site. Hope I get the chance to meet The Paperboys and all the others someday.
