CD Reviews

Gaughan's debut and his first masterpiece.
al_baqarah | 05/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is certainly one of Dick Gaughan's finest albums. Although the production quality of this, his debut, was not perfect as it was recorded on a two track recorder in his mate's front room, it should still be one of the great folk albums of all time.
Most of this album contains traditional Scottish Ballads, as opposed to the political songs that Gaughan has been partial to on his later recordings. The highlights of the album are 'Jock O' Hazeldean' and 'Bonnie Banks O' Fordie'. I believe That this is a finer record than Handfull Of Earth, his most renowned recording. An underated and rare classic."
Staggeringly beautiful and moving music

"Dick Gaughan certainly has a way with modern songs but I think he's at his absolute best with traditional material and that's all you'll find on this album. His flawless voice wraps itself around these songs with such soulful beauty that I'm never less than amazed when I listen. "The Green Linnet", in particular, is astonishing."

"I first heard this album some 25 years ago, and it's haunted me ever since. Gaughan's guitar playing is flawless and his voice - at first impression uncompromisingly Caledonian - emerges as having a similar stark beauty to that of Bob Dylan on Visions of Johanna. The Fair Flower o' Northumberland is delivered with an understanding that reveals the subtlety of the story within. This is an album that will appeal instantly to dedicated folkies. But anyone with the ear to appreciate early Dylan or Roy Harper, and the patience to listen will find the effort well rewarded.A genuinely classic, haunting album from a great undiscovered performer."
