Hamish Imlach "The Definitive Transatlantic Collection" 1966-72

This collection culls the best of the best from the seven albums the Scottish satirist and folksinger made for the influential folk revival label Transatlantic between 1966-1972. His trademark tune, "Beer Is Best," "Anthony Riley," and "37 Bus Medley" display his best upbeat scatological humor which won him hundreds of hysterical, giggling fans during the '60s. "McPherson's Farewell," "Calton Weaver," and "Foggy Dew" display some of the most heart-wrenching and desolate folk tunes he ever recorded, and "If It Wasn't for the Unions" is a self-explanatory political rave which equally popularized the singer in his homeland. For fans of Irish folk this collection is worth the price of admission for its versions of "Kilbogie" and "Johnny O'Breadislee" alone. ~ Skip Jansen, All Music Guide
