Stevenson Productions (SP82853), 1995

This album is a compilation of favorite band selections from their four previous cassette albums. The songs recall the group’s love of their ancestral homeland and note the displaced Scots’ reminiscence of and connection to home. This collection ranges from well-known traditional songs to new original works based on traditional themes and styles.
