Waited for this one to appear in CD format for years !!!!!.
My original copy on the cheapie Contour label sold in Woolworths shops now sounds like Martian static. So I was over the moon when I found and bought a nearly mint copy at the Radio Forth Charity Auction, 2 years ago at the Roxburghe Hotel in Edinburgh, it having lain in their vaults untouched for years. However, at last....CD re-masteredquality.
This contains without a doubt the most beautiful version one will ever hear of "Busk, Busk, Bonnie Lassie", simplicity itself in it's recording. A song amazingly not often recorded. Having grown up in Blairgowrie and spent my summer holidays with relatives in Bonnie Glenshee, I still get tingles every time I hear this song.
Being one of the minor less well know albums, I never thought this would see light of day on CD and I remember discussing it with Gavin after I found the mint LP.
Hats off to Gavin, you have re-found for everybody, a vital piece of Corries history with this one.
Damn shame I can only give it 5 stars on this bloody computer....it's beyond a classic !!. Muchos thanks.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
