Robert Burns is one of the great romantic poets and one of the world's great songwriters. He is also Scotland's national bard and the hero of the Scots and people of Scottish descent everywhere. This unique recording traces his life through an exciting part of the eighteenth century and provides not only an insight into the man, but presents some of the best known works of the artist. It is hard to talk about Robert Burns without mentioning John Cairney, the actor who is without doubt Burn's best known interpreter in recent times. The two have become indissolubly linked through a series of performances beginning with the famous one-man show, 'There Was A Man', through Scottish television's 'Burns' and the first issue of this recording in 1976 as a double LP.
A Masterpiece ! --The Gramophone
A portrait of Burns that does him honour, (John Cairney delivers) a superb solo performance acted with feeling and passion. --The Daily Mail

If you have ever wondered why people attend Burns Suppers or what was so special about Robert Burns then here is a man who knows all the answers. John Cairney, with beautifully crafted words, a silky soft voice and exceptional delivery takes the listener through the life and times of Robert Burns. He deals with the ups and the downs with the joys and the sorrows and mixes the text with music and song. This is feet up, two bottles of wine, a box of Kleenex and a great night in for any committed Burns person - or even just a potential Burns person.
