I THINK Moira Craig recorded it for Pastimes. I'm sure some of the Maidenhead Catters can confirm.

There must be a Kenneth McKellar recording out there somewhere. He is not classed as a 'folkie' but had the sweetest Scottish tenor voice. His singing of Burns, at his best, is unsurpassable.

The Corries do a fine job of it. Seamus Kennedy's version is truly a gem.

I've got Brian's album (vinyl) of the same name - the song is on it. Bought it from Brian in person when he played at the club I ran in the mid 80s.

If anyone wants the MP3, I'll rip it for you. I'm sure Brian wouldn't have minded had he still been with us... :o(

Seamus, no question. Don't even wanna hear another version... heck, I never even HUM it-- that way it's perfect in my memory every time.

(Just kidding of COURSE I sing it, but no one can sing it like Seamus.)

I first heard the song on an old Smithsonian collection called "Music of Scotland." Don't know who sang it, as I only have a cassette tape, not the album, but I'd like to know.

Aloha,
Mark

One of my favorite singers, Eddi Reader, just released "Ae Fond Kiss" as the title track of her new album of Burns songs. Eddi is from Glasgow, so she has the authentic sound as well as a gorgeous voice. You can hear a short clip here.

(From her website) "Eddi says she has discovered in Burns something she believes has been overlooked in the approach to his work, and she believes that her interpretations of his poetry will reach more ears than have previously heard him." Being quite well known as a pop singer, she may well be right.



Cheers,
Michael

I didn't suggest it earlier because the record is probably long gone, but the performance that make the hair stand on my neck is Bobby Eaglesham's on Five Hand Reel 'For A' That' album.

Jim McLean is right about Kenneth McKellar`singing of this lovely song, but within the past few weeks I bought Roisin O`Reilly`s new CD and she sings it to perfection, try it and listen,it can be had on Amazon. Ard Mhacha.

I agree with Stewie, Five Hand Reel's version really stands out. Margaret and I recorded a version a few years back as well.

Robert Burns wrote "Aye fond kiss" in 1791, during his stay in Edinburgh Burns met Mrs Agnes M`Lehose in December 1787.
Both fell in love but , they had frequent meetings, but marriage was out of the question.
The couple kept in touch by correspondence, they parted in December 1791, never to meet again.
Burns so eloquently captures the heartache of the parting in his poem. Ard Mhacha.

Thanks for bringing this song up. I've found two good tunes for it, and I'll use them when playing flute. One tune is right in the DT.

For those of us not from Scotland or the North of England, 'ae' means 'one' and rhymes with 'stay.'

There's a very nice recording by Gordon McIntyre and Kate Delaney on Pleasures to Find which, alas, has yet to make the jump from vinyl to CD.
