Subject: RE: Other Dougie MacLean Music
Kiwi, I got scared halfway through your post, I was thinking Robbie Burns didn't give Dougie credit for the songs he had done, "Are Ye Sleeping Maggie" (usually dedicated to Mrs Thacher) is such a great song I couldn't imagine Robbie calling it his own & then to not give Dougie a write up for it, bad taste, but wait did not Dougie give credit to Tannahill for this night visiting song or maybe it was a nice version by Ray Fisher who credits Jeannie Robertson with the words, no, sorry with the version not the words. Sorry Kiwi for some other Burns' songs I'm sure the Stewarts of Blair or any of the Fisher family or Jeannie Robertson or Norman Kennedy would give you some Burns material that would be to your liking. Some time back Jean Redpath did a whole big thing on Burns, I'm not all that fond of her parlor style treatment of of song though (only my personnel preference), I've heard that someone else has recently done releasing of another Burns' thing but I haven't heard or seen it so no help there. Good luck. Barry
