The McCalmans - Smuggler (1975)





















Ian McCalman, Hamish Bayne and Derek Moffat first met during registration for entry into Edinburgh College of Art on 6th October, 1964, and in a mutual interest in folk music, formed, not only a much loved, and I think consistently the best folk group, but also a friendship which has endured for all these years. There has only been one change in the original line up when, in 1982, Hamish retired to the quieter life, with new boy Nick Keir joining the group.

WONDERFUL. I met these guys at my folk club in Oxford years ago. Had good times with them and then we lost touch.
Thank you for these really grand recordings.

HONESTLY: thanks A LOT for all these nice albums, but do you really consider 128kbps as being high quality mp3's?
