Disc One

1 The Wark o’ the Weavers. This is the original song with a new arrangement by Gaberlunzie and nothing to do with wellies.2 The Trooper and the Maid. Trad. Love at first sight, leave at first light.3 Manura Manya. By Matt McGinn. This song inspired Jimmy the Scaffy to pursue his chosen career.4 The Two Butchers. Trad. Chivalry, trust and betrayal. Murder most foul. 5 Loch Leven’s Land. Old tune “Lowlands Low” with new local words by Gordon Menzies. 6 Catch Me. A wee bluesy number. Words and music Gordon Menzies. 7 I’m a Believer. Words and music by Niel Diamond. Robin has given the song a new and meaningful approach. 8 Learning The Game - is a Buddy Holly song. Buddy only wrote the first verse and chorus before his fatal plane crash. The additional words are by lifelong Buddy fan David Hill from Dunoon. 9 City of New Orleans. is a song written by Steve Goodman describing a train ride from Chicago to New Orleans on the Illinois Central Railroad. It was made famous by Arlo Guthrie. 10 Killiecrankie. We recorded this song on our very first album in 1969 when Jimmy Macdonald was with us. The song is connected with Robert Burns who collected part of it and wrote the rest. 11 Rolling Hills of the Borders. A great song by our old pal Matt McGinn. 12 North of the Border. Words and music by Gordon Menzies. A comment upon the historical reasons for the condition Scotland finds itself in today with a word of caution to all those politically elected.
