Sleeve Notes

The White Heather Club is a name now synonymous with all that is best in Scottish entertainment. It is the longest running show on television: an entirely Scottish programme that is spreading its influence and popularity throughout the world. Every major Scottish artist has appeared at some time or another on this record breaking show, and the hosts for the past two years have been Robin Hall and Jimmy MacGregor who have steadily built up a tremendous audience for their beautiful harmony singing through the very many radio and television programmes on which they have appeared.

Here they sing the lovely traditional ballad Singing bird in their own very personal style, and are joined by Anne and Laura Brand, two extremely talented girls whose lovely voices blend pleasantly with their personalities, on Gadie rins and Here's to the lads at the fishing and trailing, the latter being written by the Scottish actor and wit Roddy McMillan. Both of these songs are sung by the quartet with great spirit.

Anne and Laura are also featured in a Harry Lauder Medley without which no White Heather Show would be complete. We would ask you to listen to Iain Sutherland's stirring new arrangements of the old favourites.

  • Notes:
    • This EP was originally issued with a picture sleeve and accompanying booklet.
    • The booklet was for those in the paper industry and really makes no mention of Robin and Jimmie or the music, expect for the above sentence.
    • How and why Robin, Jimmie and Matt McGinn got involved, I have no idea.
    • I would love to learn more about this recording … this release is very similar to Liam Clancy's Kerry Gold EP.
