An album of rich, timeless musical gleanings of evocative or surreal ephemeral children's lore, gathered in a school playground in the crowded city of Edinburgh, a quiet little classroom on a sparsely populated Hebridean island, a suburban street in Aberdeen, and in quiet conversations with James T. Ritchie, one of Scotland's foremost childlore experts, and with two giants of Scottish folk music: Ewan MacColl and Hamish Henderson. Recorded from 1951 to 1957 by Alan Lomax, Hamish Henderson, and the MacLeans of Raasay. Introduction and notes by Ewan McVicar. Remastered to 24-bit digital from the original field recordings.
