AN EARLY SET FROM A SCOTTISH MASTER
Larry L. Looney | Austin, Texas USA | 05/08/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)
"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."

"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."
