An album in aid of the Scottish Liver Unit, featuring Blair Douglas, Michael Marra, Anne Martin, Donnie Munro, The Jennifer Forrest Band, Mackenzie, Dr Angus Macdonald, Peatbog Faeries, Arthur Cormack, Rod Paterson, Ingrid Henderson and Iain MacFarlane.

Mostly tracks are newly recorded or previously unreleased.

The list of artists who contributed tracks to this compilation sounds more like a roll call of Scotland's finest performers - an unusually high proportion of its tracks were specially recorded for this CD. None of the participants in production accepted payment for their contributions.

The CD is to celebrate the all too short life of the eponymous Ordinary Angel, Sheila McCabe, and to raise funds for an establishment which did so much to help her.

In 2002 Sheila was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer to which she succumbed, after an extraordinarily brave struggle, in Spring 2005, aged only 41. The skills of the Liver Unit at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary provided Sheila with hope, strength and, above all, time which she otherwise might not have had.
