It's inexplicable - even though, like a lot of Topic's old gems, it was deleted for a number of years - that there are 11 reviews for Handful of Earth and none for this. It may not have quite the same aura of greatness, yet the performances are just as strong. For me, the concentration on traditional material and the less overtly political tone are plus points if anything.

The tracks of the original Gaughan album are interspersed with instrumental sets from another album, Coppers and Brass; these are a bit studious, nothing special, but they do add variety.

He can be a rivettingly intense singer, though; if anything you sometimes wish you could ask him to lighten up a bit. He 'has gone on record as saying that Hamish Henderson is one of the greates Scottish poets', for example. Oh...thanks for going on record about that, Dick. As for his comments about Parcel of Rogues - well, you can imagine. The performances are the same: very serious, even verging on dour, sung with clenched fists and furrowed brow. Even so, if you like Handful of Earth you will absolutely definitely like this.

By jingo, though: that cover must be about the least flattering publicity shot ever published. He looks like Mike Harding's Irish setter.

This is well worth buying because Dick Gaughan always sings very well, and he's also a very fine guitar player. That being said this work is not as great as his generally regarded master piece "Handful of earth" which is pretty close to perfect.This album "Gaughan" is actually a compilation of 3 albums he recorded between 1975 and 1978, and they are, for me, overly sparse in terms of musical accompaniment. It's virtually all Dick Gaughan on his own and does lack variety. Nonetheless it is still extremely good value for money at this price.

A fabulous many ways better than Handful of Earth..with some stunning guitar work and Gaughan's wonderful Scots pronunciation that many will find impenetrable but which forms an important part of the album's character. If you like Gaughan, buy it!

By Larry L. Looney - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This early album by Dick Gaughan contains some of his best work, and is a nice mixture of his self-penned political songs and more traditional selections, including works by Robert Burns as well as songs dealing with the work and plight of coal miners, a cause near and dear to his heart (He released an entire album of mining-related songs to benefit the miners strike in the UK during the Thatcher years). Gaughan is (as usual) in fine voice here, and his guitar work shines nicely as well. 'Bonnie Jeannie o' Bethelnie' is a classic example of the sheer beauty of traditional Scots song. This album is a classic of the Scottish folk revival -- it's nice to know that it's still available. Those who are interested should also seek out his 'Handful of earth' album -- that and 'A different kind of love song' are must-haves for anyone who enjoys his work.

Gaughan - Dick Gaughan 20 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a pretty good Gaughan album. I would recomend this to anyone who is into old Scottish and North of England folks songs. His dialect is pretty strong so I imagine anyone from North America could have trouble understanding what he's talking about. There are some pretty interesting tales in here so its worth perservering. If you havent heard Dick Gaughan before I would recommend you buy Handful of Earth first.
