  • Notes:
    1. Dominic Behan is not credited as the song's author on this recording.
    2. This track is not actually listed on the jacket (or the Gaberlunzie website).

This is easily Gaberlunzie's hardest to find recording, and to put it diplomatically, Gordon Menzies himself doesn't have a very high opinion of it. According to Gordon, " Half Cut was only released on cassette by an independent company … We are gradually re-recording all the tracks that were on it onto other albums such as Live at Glenfarg, but we will not reissue the actual cassette in any form."
