Cape Breton By Request, as the title suggests, features many of the most popular recordings to come out of Cape Breton in recent years. From the perennial favourite "Song For The Mira" to the classic recordings of "Rise Again" and "The Island", this collection was assembled based on popular requests at music stores and on local radio.

Many of the tracks on Cape Breton By Request are no longer available as the original releases are "out of print" or difficult to find. One track, The Rankin Family's biggest hit, "Fare Thee Well Love", was recorded exclusively for this compilation by eleven year old Fiona MacGillivray, daughter of songwriter Allister MacGillivray, and produced by the ECMA award winning team of Gordie Sampson and Fred Lavery.

This series of compilations are musical collections aimed at preserving Cape Breton recordings and promoting local singers, songwriters and musicians. These songs are an integral part of the island’s popular culture: some have reached an international audience; others are local favourites. All offer a glimpse, a musical snapshot, of that magical kingdom known as Cape Breton Island.
