  1. Many thanks for this on a blog I only just found. Its a silly shame that so much of your own record collection (many of these discs are unavailable elsewhere), has been made un-shareable. Yet as these blog pages form a small but valuable archival document of some rare obscure aspects of the Scottish folk tradition, I hope it will remain here indefinitely.
    Thanks again !
