Dick Gaughan – No More Forever
(Trailer, LER 2072, 1972)
A young Dick Gaughan in traditional mode here, recorded by the great Bill Leader. Tracks include Rattlin’ Roarin’ Willie; Jock o’Hazeldean; The Green Linnet and The Fair Flower of Northumberland. Gaughan’s fiery guitar is coupled with Aly Bain’s fiddle and, of course, the voice is unmistakeable. Whatever Dick Gaughan performs, he makes his own and this largely traditional set of songs is no exception.
