Clifford Hughes "Over the Sea to Skye" 1973 LP

Here is a very nice collection of Scottish folk songs,  with a couple of music hall numbers thrown in - all done in a classic style.
Clifford Hughes was one of Scotland's premier lyric tenors in the 1970s.  A churchman, he has since suffered from cancer of the larynx.
He does a really good performance on most of these numbers although the Bonnie Earl of Moray, the final track, is, IMHO, truly awful.
All tracks are listed on the cover.

  1. A lovely album. After visiting Scotland this is a wonderful selection - much better than the usual pap that's actually available/pushed on the tourists.
