21 songs originally recorded for The School of Scottish Studies and the BBC by the wonderful Gaelic singer Joan MacKenzie from the Isle of Lewis.
Although a very popular singer among Gaelic radio listeners, Joan only made two commercial 45rpm albums, no longer available.
The recordings for this album were by Dr John MacInnes (1961, 1972), Dr Alasdair Maclean (1955) and James Ross (1955, 1960-61).
The selection of tracks was made by Morag MacLeod from the School tape archive. Morag also wrote the extensive sleeve notes.
