(April 2009 release of 1994 recording) 18 tracks (61 mins)
Vol 1 of three CD releases featuring material from The Original Transatlantic Sessions (Series One).
An acclaimed ground-breaking series that, in a very simple fashion, brought together a host of great artists from Europe and America, and introduced them to each other's music. A long time coming on CD, but greatly welcomed by folk, country and roots music enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic.
As recently re-broadcast on BBC television.
"With our series of Transatlantic Sessions for BBC and RTE, Aly Bain, director Mike Alexander and I can fairly claim to have done our bit in rescuing Scottish and Irish traditional music and American Country from their respective Aran sweater and rhinestone glitter caricatures. It was the original Transatlantic Sessions that set the benchmark and we're delighted, almost fourteen years after that glorious two weeks at the Montgreenan Mansion House in Ayrshire, to be answering at last the (literally) thousands of calls there have been for CD releases... Thanks are due to the BBC as copyright holder, and the singers and instrumentalists who created a legend and had a ball en route." (Douglas Eadie)
