This CD was included in the 2003 year-end "Hit List" compiled by CBC Radio Two presenter Jurgen Gothe, host of Canada's most listened to afternoon drive show "Disc Drive".

In the late 1970's, George Meanwell was guitarist and vocalist with the Toronto acoustic folk trio Short Turn which appeared throughout the then extensive 416 area code, garnering invitations from Morningside, 90 Minutes Live, and George Hamilton IV. Until recently he was Quartetto Gelato's cellist, guitarist and mandolinist (as well as webmaster, arranger and liner note writer) in concerts throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Another Street contains thirteen Meanwell songs, including new performances of The Fiddler Never Gets The Girls, Keeping Accounts, and Snowbound (all originally heard with Short Turn); and The Words That I Want, first recorded on Quartetto Gelato's Neapolitan Café. Five songs were written especially for this project, including Fish Don't Feel and the song of an effective man, It'll Be A Breeze. He has been inspired over the years by the usual luminaries, and the style of the album has been characterized somewhat ambiguously as "Perry Como sings Hank Williams".

Another Street was recorded at Inception Sound in Toronto. The other musicians involved in the project are, from Peterborough, Clifford Maynes (electric guitar, mandolin), Rob Phillips (piano, organ), Richard Simpkins (acoustic bass); and, from Toronto, Joe Macerollo (accordion), Kirk Elliott (violin), Roly Platt (harmonica), John Johnson (saxophones), and Brian Barlow (percussion). Chad Irschick (The Rankin Family, Susan Aglukark) produced.

George Meanwell has been a musician at the Stratford Festival for several years. He most recently performed on stage in the 2015 production of Taming of the Shrew, and has been in past productions including As You Like It, Grapes of Wrath and Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris.
