Robbie Shepherd wrote a sleeve note for this album and one of his comments was:
“The lift is there for dancing feet and the lilt is there for discerning ears.”
This was the first Scottish dance band signed to Greentrax, in 1990, and it was a cracker.
The then young Craig McCallum was already leading one of the most popular dance bands on the circuit and was spotted by Ian Green at a live BBC Radio Scotland recording, where he and his talented bunch of fellow musicians was signed up and subsequently recorded in CAVA Sound Workshops studio.
