Long considered one of the great folk voices of our time, Dick Gaughan is acknowledged as one of Scotland’s most outstanding musicians – his vocal prowess, instrumental virtuosity and intelligence as a composer are legendary. This collection reflects all these skills.

An early member of Boys Of The Lough, he was also a founding member of the legendary Scottish folk rock group Five Hand Reel. His classic album Handful Of Earth was named as Album Of The Decade for the 1980s by Folk Roots magazine.

He lists his influences as everything ranging from Davy Graham to Big Bill Broonzy, Bertolt Brecht to Robert Burns and Karl Marx to Groucho Marx.

Dick draws his material from a variety of sources, so, while traditional material provides much of this repertoire, great songwriters are also represented. The common thread running through all his work is Dick’s passion in social justice and telling it like it is.

"Passion, honesty, they're all there ... Buy it." (The Living Tradition)
