Newfoundland music

There’s been some discussion of Newfoundland music recently which reminded me of this LP record, from 1980, which my wife brought back from a trip there. And you thought the Irish were bad for tune titles ! The "titles" I’ve posted are what is on the album sleeve notes. I’ll try to identify some of them, and up-date the listing if I can.
Ed Doucette, Ivan White and Ron Formanger play fiddle.
{ Ivan White, according to the sleeve notes, plays a "normally" strung fiddle left-handed. ]
Gerry Formanger plays button-accordion.
Accompanying on guitar are Ron Felix and Larus White.
