Jack Beck: O Lassie, Lassie (1989)

Jack Beck: O Lassie, Lassie

When Jack Beck was asked to record a solo album im the late 1980s, he got the rest of the current line-up of Heritage to play on the album with him. The result is a splendid collection of songs with tasteful accompaniment, and anyone interested in Scots folksinging will be delighted with this.

    Thanks as of now

  2. Hi....I had a bit of a learning curve to unzip this second time around....again it came through with an error report "The following invalid file name was encountered in the archive "JackBeck/JB: jpg"........but I went to my computer and opened the main download page and with a bit of right clicking it unzipped into a file....thanks for the challenge and the music....

  3. I have redone the link, so hopefully that will sort the problems out. Let me know either way.
