This fourth album by Jim McLean of mainly traditional songs centre around the theme of travelling. The journeys are physical (“Oregon", "Trail Of The Buffalo"). They are philosophical (Burns' beautiful"Tae A Moose", the harsher but more pragmatic "Twa Corbies").


Above all, these songs are journeys of the soul - of Love, Loss, Faith and Perseverance. "Bonnie Glenshee" shines a ray of hope through perilous times. "Ladye Gaye" warns us against succumbing to Death's despair whilst Tom Paxton's "Rambling Boy" finds a way through the sadness of loss to celebrate Life.


With intricate and original arrangements Jim McLean renews so-called "standards", and with his inimitable delivery this is a truly great folk album. Sit back and enjoy!
