Gaberlunzie is a Scottish word which means a beggar or pedlar and what magnificent song pedlars Gaberlunzie are. I called this album Brave Words 'N' Fightin' Talk because after the first five minutes of the recording session I was so shaken by the threatening rattle of dirks and sporrans I wanted to fly back to my side of the border, miserable cowardly Sassenach that I am. Seriously, Messrs Menzies, Watson and MacDonald have done a wonderful job on this recording of Scottish Folk Songs and original songs written by Gordon Menzies.
1 According to Gordon Menzies — "Jimmy MacDonald was instrumental in bringing Robin and me together and forming the group. He was with us for a year and left to buy a pub in Ayr. Later went on to acting and DJ in local Radio Westsound. He still lives in Ayr."
