In 1996 the legendary Glasgow songwriter Adam McNaughtan went into the recording studio and recorded a new batch of songs for Greentrax, mostly his own work but some by other songwriters.
Adam is a genius among songwriters and while he may be best known for his humorous compositions there is also a serious side to him, such as Thomas Muir of Huntershill.
For those who prefer his funny songs then look no further than Erchie Cathcairt and Cholesterol, they are hilarious!
Other great songs to look out for are The Dear Green Place, Old Man Noah and The Twin-Towered Stand, but there is not a weak song on the album.
Adam is backed on some tracks by his Stramash pals Finlay Allison (fiddle), Bob Blair (guitar) and John Eaglesham (concertina).
This is classic McNaughtan - a ‘must buy’ album!
“A funny man with genuinely witty songs…”
