I know the fella who wrote Shelly Made Me Smile, And Gion Away. I think he sold them in the late 60s early to mid 70s. He lost the casette of his original demo of the songs over time, and was really heartbroken about it. Hes too old to understand the internet lol and even though Listle isn’t his band he desperately wants a copy of those two songs. Lisle played and sang it exactly the way he does to this day. All he has is the words and chords on his original sheets. It would be a wonderful gift for him if someone could tell me how to get ahold of those two songs. Goin away is sooooooo hard to find. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Rob Ross,

I read your note and you’re correct that finding the song “goin away” is difficult at best.I’ll let you know I’ve been searching for this song for about 4 years and I’m happy to tell you that I believe I’ve found a copy I’m in the process of purchasing.I will let you know when and if I recieve it.I have no idea how I would go about uploading it to the internet so that others such as yourself may enjoy it also.If you know how I would upload this song please get in touch with me and advise me on how I would do this.Thankyou.

Sincerely,Larry
Ps.I had the pleasure of meeting Lisle and seeing them play live a few times years ago up in Orillia,Ontario.

My brother and I used to play in a band called Backwater and used to do a cover of Goin’ Away. I loved the song then and we still play it after all these years. Lisle is a great band that we had the pleasure of knowing and their songs still “Make me smile”. Cheers guys:)

Any one here, both my wife and I were great Lisle fans when we lived in Petawawa and Pembroke. We loved their comedy and music, two terrific guys, one song that we loved was “Rain is Fallin On My Window”, the guys gave us a signed copy of that 45, as a wedding gift, one night in Pembroke, but somewhere over the years it got lost, would love to get a copy of that again, anyone help

I recorded Lisle over 40 years ago and found it quite interesting to read all the comments (some right & some wrong)
The comment about he knew the guy that wrote Shelley and Goin’ away is wrong these songs were written by two different writers.

But it is super special to see how many fans the band had and still has and My heart still fells that maybe the fact that I saw them at the Cadillac Hotel in Oshawa and started the recording situation the the guys and I worked with has helped Lisle and myself create all these folks memories.
Have a super large day

I was one of the original members along with Bill Chambers of a band called ” Robin & The Hoods”. Bill was lead guitar and singer, who I thought wrote “Goin’ Away”. He went on to form the band Lisle and I went on to begin an excavating business.
Haven’t seen the old band members for years but would love to touch base with them at some point.
