This CD is the third in a very successful series of songs and ballads from north east Scotland.  Each is performed in the traditional style as an unaccompanied solo by one of the singers, all of whom were born and raised in the area.  

Many of the fifteen songs display the sharp tang of north east humour and you will surely derive much pleasure and amusement in listening to them.  
In this compilation there are ten new recordings from Joe Aitken, Jock Duncan, Gordon Easton, Frank McNally, Geordie Murison, Tam Reid and Eric Simpson plus five from bygone names, John Mearns, John MacDonald, Davie Stewart and Jimmy McBeath.
