Sleeve Notes

A touch of the Clydesiders displays their infectious happy songs. Those familiar with their music from TV, Radio, Theatre and Cabaret will recognise the energy and vitality which are the trademarks of these popular Scottish entertainers. The humour and lightheartedness, so characteristic of Scotland's people are captured in songs like the "Wee Kirkcudbright Centipede" and Eric Bogle's "Wee China Pig".

Also displayed is the deep pride which Scots feel when singing about their own native land.

Matt McGinn's "I Hae Seen the Heilans" and McCrone & Jamieson's "Always Argyll" illustrate this feeling admirably.

"Jim Watt", World Boxing Champion extraordinaire, written by another of Scotland's top songwriters — Jim Brown — shows the brash but tongue in cheek aspect of Scotland's character.

The Clydesiders are all of these things, proud, brash, and humorous, and their LP captures this unique flavour.

Notes

Here are some of the best-known and most-loved songs from the West of Scotland, together with several newer songs from Scotland's finest songwriters. They'll have you smiling, singing along, tapping your feet and might even bring a bit of a nostalgic tear to your eye - in the nicest possible way of course!

"A Brand New Album of members 'hits' and re-recordings of the group's 'hits — it's not a compilation of old stuff but the original band reliving their historic past and giving it what 'laldy' they have left."
