Andy performs the rant in a fittingly staunch manner. Looking at the eerie lights of the town, whilst Wheres Your Troosers? (Vinyl) with the mixed feelings in the minds of weary soldiers awaiting transportation for the Allied invasion of Normandy "D-Day"the lyrics began forming in his imagination.
Andy, ably assisted by a wonderful arrangement, delivers a satisfying version that is both stirring and mournful at the same time.
Here the song is embellished with a "musical-theatre" style arrangement. The final traditional song in this collection is ' The Farmer's Boy ' a song first "collected" in the mid 19th century as a popular folk song in England and Ireland, but said to date from the 's and sharing it's tune with another folk song "Ye Sons of Albion". The song is a simple tale of a young man, looking for work, being employed as a "farm-hand" and in time ending up marrying the farmer's daughter and inheriting the farmland.
The album ends with a Stewart original ' Highland Paradise ', a telling tale regarding the dangers in having "one more for the road"!
This album was only ever available in Mono in the UK, although international variants would contain most of the tracks in Stereo. It is worth noting that some of the tracks appear to the discerning ear to be very slightly different - presumably from different takes - when comparing Stereo to Mono.
This is most evident in 'The Wee Toon Clerk' when Andy sings a slightly different line towards the end of each mix of the song. Colum arr. Burns arr. Instead, and of most interest to collectors, the album includes two tracks that would remain unreleased in the UK. It was first published in a volume of Scottish songs in the 19th century by Dr. The second unreleased track is the equally popular Irish folk song ' Irish Rover ' - a tale concerning the crew aboard, and the fate of, the eponymous sailing ship, Andy Stewart With The White Heather Group - Donald.
Producer Walter J. Ridley gives the drums their appropriate presence and the Mike Sammes Singers make this song vaguely reminiscent of 'Tunes of Glory'. Incidentally this is one of the few Stewart recordings that fades out; most of Andy's songs having "complete" endings. Original versions of this song also known Wheres Your Troosers?
(Vinyl) 'The Heir O' Linne' have tales of illicit meetings between lovers, even elements of the supernatural, however Andy disperses with all of this and inserts his own verses turning the song into a cheekily jaunty celebration of drinking: "My love was angry and did harang me, she said "It's either the drink or me", I'm very sad now I'm feeling bad now, to think how lonely she's going to be! Stereo mixes of these tracks were never released in the UK, although true stereo mixes of both appear on the US album 'I'm Off to Bonnie Scotland' The reasoning behind this record being issued is unclear.
However, released in June of it would be quickly followed up three months later with a full 'Best-Of' LP, making one guess that both of these records were issued for contractual reasons as Andy's second contract with EMI was coming to an end, looking towards renewal.
Stewart- Arr. This is the first of many compilations that have been issued of Andy Stewart material. In a way it is a forerunner of the modern "greatest hits" compilation, in that it pairs the big selling "hits" with brand new recordings, thereby appealing to both audiences: the listener who wants the popular songs; and the Wheres Your Troosers? (Vinyl) who wants new recordings. Of the 14 tracks here, seven are old favourites and the other seven are brand new to disc. It may also have been issued to fulfill contractual obligations, as Andy's EMI recording deal was coming towards an end.
Regardless of any of this, the quality of the tracks both old and new are so high, it stands on its own merits as a fine "greatest hits" selection. Shaw, first published indetailing the activities under one of Glasgow's most famous landmarks, Central Station, and the large glass-walled bridge that extends over Argyll Street. This bridge would famously be the first place Highlanders from the North of Scotland would find themselves after alighting from their trains; the bridge providing shelter from the elements and the first glimpses of Glasgow to those looking for work in the big city.
Andy delivers the vocal with appropriate gravitas.
