Notes

Doon Through The Years is a definitive live performance from Scotland's greatest political folk singer. Over the past five decades, Arthur Johnstone has established himself as the defining voice of songs of protest and struggle; though, as here, they are always delivered with large doses of both humour and humanity. The CD contains some of Arthur's 'greatest hits' — Jarama Valley, Bandiera Rossa and John MacLean March; songs from his earlier career — Dylan's Playboys and Playgirls and the anti-nuclear H-Bomb Thunder; plus some new material — These Hands and the self-penned title track tribute to the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders' Work-in, Doon Through The Years. It is not just Arthur's powerful performance that makes this CD special, but also the sheer breadth of material. Listening to this CD will make you angry at injustice, make you laugh at life's absurdities and make you proud of the folk-song legacy that Arthur Johnstone has created for generations to come.
