Harness were Andy Ramage, a singer of Scottish songs who was a member of the well-regarded harmony group Bitter Withy, and button accordionist Neil Mathieson, helped out by Alastair Currie on piano accordion and Richard Hughes on drums. As far as I know, this was their only recording.

  1. Hallo,
    there was another LP of Harness before. I bought it in June 1985 in Ullapool after a concert of the two:
    HARNESS "Bridging The Gap" (Harness records 1). According to the liner notes this was the first LP.
