I knew Hamish well when a young student in Edinburgh in the middle of the last century. It is wonderful and a privilege to hear again the voice and poetry and music of one of the greatest Scots of the last century - or of all time,come to that!

This is a great CD, I enjoyed it very much, and am sorry I never heard Hamish perform in person. I particularly enjoyed the version of D-Day Dodgers and Freedom Come All Ye. Buy it if you like Scottish music, you won't be disappointed. It's worth buying for the excellent sleeve notes alone,which tell a lot about Hamish. There are words to all the songs, but it would be better if a translation of some of the dialect words had been provided. As a Sassenach, I must admit that I have no idea what " gar oor rottans", "heelster-gowdie" , "my worm keeks in your barn and byre", "in duddies braw", etc. mean. Puzzling, but great songs nevertheless

This tribute gets right to the heart of this giant of the Scottish cultural/political scene in the era post 2nd world war to the first tangible steps on the road to the demise of the English Empire.

Great album. You need to know the history behind the songs and the verse to fully appreciate it.
