Sleeve Notes

This EP of Hamish Imlach "the biggest thing in Scottish folk music" is the result of a live session at the Paisley Folk Song Club held at the Rockfield Hotel, Paisley, on February 24th 1967. The bulk of the results of that evening can be heard on the XTRA LP, XTRA 1050, also called "Hamish Imlach, Live". So just imagine yourself in one of Scotland's best folk song clubs with one of Britain's best folk performers ready to go. Here are three varied songs, one somewhat light hearted biblical blues, one very English song of moral caution and one harrowing and sensitive ballad, each handled with complete understanding and success.

Sleeve Notes

This Hamish Imlach record is in three respects a curiosity: On it Hamish plays a 12-string guitar, instead of his usual six-string guitar. This record has been recorded 'completely solo', without any accompanying musicians and without playback, so as you hear him live. The second number of each side is an unaccompanied song; there is no chorus-singing audience, so as to present the artist as if he is singing for you alone in your living room.

We thought that, after Hamish Imlach's many studio — and live — recordings, such a record was due; and we hope you enjoy it. And by the way this is Hamish's second EP beside many LP's (the first EP from 1965 has been deleted since years).
