Somerset and Stereo Fidelity were both basically the same label. Somerset was used for the mono releases, and Stereo Fidelity was used for the stereo issues. Somerset and Stereo Fidelity albums rarely had any logos or label identifiers on the front covers.
That way, they could be easily mistaken for "full price" albums by the casual buyer. The original Somerset label was yellow with black print.
This was used primarily for the first fifteen or so issues, before the Stereo Fidelity issues. When stereo came in, the Somerset label changed to a light blue with dark blue print, similar to the Stereo Fidelity label. Early Stereo Fidelity label was light blue with dark blue print, similar to the Somerset blue label. E This collection of short stories by the late Canadian broadcaster Stuart McLean is the literary equivalent of a helping of strawberries and cream, or perhaps an ice-cold beer on the hottest day of summer.
Each season of the year in question is allocated a number of stories. This adds to the realistic flow of the book, as we accompany the family from Christmas to Christmas. And what uproarious and catastrophic yule tides they prove to be -- from the hapless head of the family Dave left in charge of the preparation of the turkey an aparently simple operation that soon threaten to turn into a major disasterto a rum-spiked bowl of eggnog that finds its way into the circle of children innocently pursuing their own harmless festivities in the basement.
Dave is the owner of the Vinyl Cafe apparently the smallest record bar in downtown Toronto. His better half Morley is a housewife at first, but later enters the work market as the manager of the Century of Wind Theatre Company. The rest of the family consists of sixteen-year-old Stephanie and seven-year-old Sam. The stories introduce us to various neighbors and friends who feature in the sometimes true-to-life, sometimes farcical adventures that befall the family. Particularly delightful is Kenny Woo, owner of Woo's Scottish Pies -- a true friend to Dave and the one who has the record store owner's back at all times.
Kenny is the one who comes to Dave's rescue when the latter is in serious trouble after his caring for a neighbor's iconic sourdough starter goes sidesplittingly pear-shaped. There are also wonderfully detailed vignettes concerning Dave's and Morley's parents, and richly rendered flashbacks to their own chidhood years, disastrous teenage dates, and the story of how they first met.
All of this ensures an extremely easy and palatable mix, leaving the reader in a more-or-less continuous state of hilarity, while being superbly entertained by the author's sparkling wit and inventive storytelling. So persuasively is the world of this one family presented that most readers will end up convinced that they know these likeable people as intimately as they know their own families. Highlights include young Sam's birthday party where a planned sleepover is ruined for ten little boys as a result of the wrong choice of movie, Dave's surreal encounter with a wilfull blood pressure reading device, and an unenviable situation for our hero while on the roof of his house in sub-zero conditions stringing up Christmas lights.
Stuart Mclean wrote a string of best-selling books about Dave and his family, besides creating a popular Canadian radio program featuring more of the same.
Not being Canadian, this is my first encounter with this phenomenon. I thank my lucky stars that I listened to my gut feeling when I saw this volume sitting quietly and unassumingly on the shelves of my favorite second hand book dealer. It has given me untold pleasure and will continue to do so in retrospect. Feb 01, Jessica rated it it was amazing Shelves: audiobookshumorall-timefavorites. Stuart McLean is a Canadian National Treasure, and listening to him tell the stories of Dave, Morley, the Vinyl Cafe, their kids and neighbors, is one of life's great delights.
Nov 11, Jennifer G rated it it was amazing. This is such a funny book. I don't LP) giggle when I read, but this book started and ended with a chuckle. If there is any complaint it's that the book started with what was probably the funniest story. So it created a bit of an expectation of laughter that wasn't met Last year, our book club experienced challenges as we tried to find a "happy" book to share. If only we had thought of reading a book from the Vinyl Cafe collection of short stories, we would have had a fun discussion!

Many CBC listeners will have listened to Dave tell the stories on the radio but they can also be enjoyed in a series of books.
Home from the Vinyl Cafe: A Year of Stories starts in the Winter with the story of Dave's challenges cooking the Christmas turkey and ends the following winter with Dave's escapades as accidentally mixed up the adult and the children's punch bowls of egg nog! My favourite was The Birthday Party which took place in the spring when Dave was left in charge of his son's birthday party. The story began with an incident at the liquor store when Dave left in a huff. When he realized that he had left his credit card behind, he didn't want to face the clerk so he cancelled his card rather than returning.
This started an avalanche of issues - the vegetarian boy ate meat pies, the partygoers watched a scary zombie movie and there was a lumpy cake baked by Dave.
The sleepover culminated with all but one of the kids being picked up in the middle of the night which is a situation that many parents could identify with! As a cat lover and parent, I could certainly relate to the Road Trip story when the cat accidentally ended up in the car.
I was literally laughing out loud reading A Day Off when the couple played hooky from their jobs only to have Dave's mother in law arrive to take care of them. These every day stories promote laughter and pleasant reflection. Unfortunately, Stuart McLean passed away this past February at the age of He died of melanoma but his stories will be enjoyed by Canadians for years to come. He had told his tales at the Sanderson Theatre in Brantford a few years ago and I will always regret missing this opportunity.

My family started to give me some very bizarre looks by the end of this book, due to the amount of times I just burst out laughing out of nowhere.
I liked how this one, rather than changing characters like the previous one did, kept the viewpoint on one family. A fantastic beach book. Funny and simple short stories - this family is so loveable. It was exactly what I wanted when I picked this up. These stories made me simply, deeply happy. She was sitting on the couch talking to Michael when she noticed that his glasses had begun to fog up - for no apparent reason - and he seemed to be out of breath.
Which struck her as peculiar, because he wasn't moving. He was just sitting there with his arm around her shoulders. She wasn't sure how it got there. Then she realized his face, with that faraway look, was moving These stories made me simply, deeply happy. Then she realized his face, with that faraway look, was moving closer and closer, and she knew what was happening and she knew that it had nothing whatsoever to do with her.
It could have been any girl sitting there beside Michael. She just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time - it was like a traffic accident. She didn't dare move, not a muscle, even though the arm of the couch was digging uncomfortably into her back.
She was afraid if she even shifted, Michael Street Cafe - Various - Hit-Rallye Favorites (Vinyl take it as a sign of passion. And things could get worse" How am I just discovering McLean? I feel like I'm late to the party, and I'm kind of pissed about it.

I feel like short stories are sort of a rip-off because you get so invested in them, and whammo, they're over, just like that. But this book is ideal.

I got this book for Christmas and had several other books in line ahead of it.
When I started it, it seemed a little dry and difficult to get into. However, once I had read a few chapters and became acquainted with the characters it was a very fun, lighthearted read.
