WGS426CD 'Gleanings' - Hector Gilchrist  Track List

Since my original introduction into the world of folk clubs and festivals getting on for 55 years now, I would have listened to hundreds of wonderful songs covering a range of genres. There is always another good song which should have been learned and incorporated into the repertoire but for various and not always good reasons, they are left out or forgotten. To date, I have recorded approximately 70 tracks on vinyl, cassette and C.D. and this selection adds a few more, although I make no apology for re-recording a couple of my favourites. The others I have gleaned and placed into the basket of memories.

The choice of material is wide and varies from very modern singer songwriter to Scottish traditional but it all makes good listening.
