Now working with the permanent backing of the Whisky Fizz which consists of the beautiful Doreen Swan and the not so beautiful Eddie Taaffe, I am further assisted in these tracks by some of the many friends made around the folk scene. Two weeks prior to the recording they gathered together frae aw pairts! Paisley, Glasgow, Dundee, London, Edinburgh and rehearsed through what seemed like a fourteen day party. This friendly atmosphere is evident on side one where the staff and audience of the Ardencaple Hotel, Helensburgh joined in to make this a milestone in live folk entertainment. Often asked why I never perform my more serious compositions I have taken the opportunity of displaying why on side two: — I usually burst into tears — so might you, though it might be for entirely different reasons.
With thanks to the management and staff of Ardencaple Hotel, Rhu, Helensburgh.
