Top Scots folk duo with powerful songs. Two CDs for the price of one - both great albums when they first came out in 1978 and 1980, and they stand the test of time well.

The Corries were originally a trio, formed in 1962 in Edinburgh - Ronnie Browne, Roy Williamson and Bill Smith. Paddie Bell's angelic voice was added for a short while before she departed to have children, and Bill left the group fairly soon after.

The remaining duo of Ronnie and Roy continued, to establish themselves as one of the top performing acts in Scotland with their mixture of traditional songs with original compositions from Roy, Bill Hill and others.

Roy's song The Flower Of Scotland has become an unofficial Scottish National Anthem. As well as his songwriting and singing skills, Roy also made his own instruments - including the amazing combolin.

"This double CD shows how wide and expansive their musical horizons were..." (Living Tradition)
