Sleeve Notes (Excerpts)

Robin and Jimmie are certainly among the most itinerant of itinerant folk singers, having travelled extensively, not only in their native Scotland, and all over Britain, but in many other countries all over the world. On this record they present a selection of songs from Ireland to Israel, a Trinidadian song learned in Belfast, and a Greek song learned in a restaurant in London, W.1. Guitars were played by Jimmie MacGregor and Leon Rosselson and the bass was played by John Jobson.
