Traditional Scots song - Mick's big, rich, warm, expressive voice is rated as one of Scotland's finest.

Mick West's first album (Fine Flowers And Foolish Glances) was a revelation. Well known as a session singer but rarely taking centre stage, Mick had gathered around him some young talented musicians with a jazzy background and came up with an album which was a breath of fresh air. Subsequently touring as The Mick West Band, they went on to receive critical acclaim for their live performances.

After a year or more performing as a band, it was always likely that this second album would have the musicians exerting their own musical ideas rather than being accompanists on a solo album. The musicians display great taste and the 'jazzy' content has increased - all through the album the musicianship is faultless.

"Mick West has little to prove in the singing stakes. This is an excellent album with lots of high points..." (Living Tradition)
