Subject: RE: Burns as Music
Whilst googling for the Merry Muses of Caledonia I was surprised to learn that one Paul Clayton had recorded a LP of The MMs back in the '60s on the ELEKTRA label. It can still be had on e-bay and other such sites but it's pricey! Further research has found that he was well immersed in all kinds of folk song. He died in 1967 aged only 36.
Anyone know what happened to him?
Iona Records in Glasgow released a CD of the MMs in 1996, IRCD 035.
It has 19 tracks by such singers as Davy Steele, Robin Laing Tich Frier Gill Bowman & Fiona Forbes...well worth seeking out!
