Archie Fisher

"Will Ye Gang, Love" 1976


















This album was originally released on the Topic label in 1976 and suffers occasionally from a rather hollow production quality, but the singing and the songs are more than strong enough to make up for any sonic limitations. Though Archie Fisher is an excellent and influential songwriter, here he focuses primarily on traditional Scots songs both familiar ("Mally Lee," "Will Ye Gang, Love") and obscure ("Looly, Looly," "The Flower of France and England, O"). But the album's emotional and musical high point is Fisher's own "Men o'Worth," a starkly beautiful lamentation over the changes brought to the northeast of Scotland by the North Sea oil boom. ~ Rick Anderson, All Music Guide

Thanks very, very, very much Lizardson for posting this excellent LP. It is thanks to your web site that I was turned on to Archie Fisher in the first place. He is one of the best for sure
