Scottish singers Joe Gordon, George Hill, Callum Sinclair and Dick Campbell were The Joe Gordon Folk Four, formed in 1957.

They were very popular and in great demand with their fresh and lively versions of Scottish folk songs, which delighted audiences at the time.

Their repertoire consisted of songs from across the Scottish folk tradition. A blend of lesser-known and well-known material brought a rich variety to their performances.

The songs on this compilation are taken from two EPs recorded in 1959 and 1960, and from a live recording before an audience at The St Andrews Hall in Glasgow in 1960.

At last after sixty years I've been able to replace my vinyl with this CD - well worth the wait! I'd welcome anything else available from this group too.

Customer Comment:

Claims to be "digitally enhanced" but really quite poor quality. I think I could have done a better job myself with the discs available. A disappointment, and of course also overpriced given that this material is now in the public domain and cost this publisher nothing.
