I'm looking for the lyrics to 2 recently recorded Dick Gaughan songs (they're not on his WebSite yet). The second one was actually written by Richard Thompson.

Can anyone provide?

Ewan and the Gold (from his latest CD - Redwood Cathedral) 1952 Vincent Black Lightning (from Dick's Sail On)

Cheers, Gary

And as a matter of fact, the first one (Ewan and the Gold) was written by Brian McNeill.

I've heard Dick use this line in concert: "I don't write many songs, and this isn't one of them."

But don't feel bad Gary, they're songs well worth a little embarrassment. He only steals from the best.

I have the new CD 'Redwood Cathedral' but as it is Christmas present for my 'trouble and strife' I have just wrapped it up and not listened to it. Can some one out there tell me what it is like?

I did read the cover however (that's just between you and me OK) and he has some interesting things to say about singing and writing songs being entirely different skills. Any comments on that one?

All I know is that Brian McNeill possesses both skills in equal measure. Just listen to his own version of 'Ewan and the Gold' or to 'Muir and the Master Builder' (from which the title of Dick's album is taken). Brian's album of songs about expatriate Scots, 'The Back o' the North Wind' is one of my all-time favourites. - Susanne

I'm listening to it right now--its hard to describe other than to say its a good choice for someone who likes Dick Gaughan. No trad songs, although several are ballads of historical content. All in all, quite a bit less stridently political than some of his other releases, and has some surprising song choices--"Let It Be Me" (yes the old 60's MOR love song), and "Poncho & Lefty"; as you might surmise these and his version of "Turn Turn Turn" are highly idiosyncratic and definitely don't give one the sensation of "not that old chestnut again".

Production is quite sparse, mostly just voice and guitar-with the odd extra backup--so much of it is like a live recording.

You might say it's a mature album. He hasn't lost his edge though. Lotsa soul.

Speaking of redwoods and politics, if we were, not many people seem to be aware that a young American forest activist was killed in September when a logger working for the notorious Pacific Lumber Co in Northern California dropped a tree (possibly a redwood) on him while cutting in a disputed area. Outside of the local area, the media has virtually ignored the story. For more info check

With all the hype about "ecoterrorism" lately, its remarkable how this story has been buried.

I was looking for the lyrics to 1952 Vincent Black Lightning awhile ago. If you've got 'em could you post them please. Thanks.

Maelgwyn, you'll find "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" at the International Lyrics Server (click me). I haven't heard the song, but the lyrics sure are interesting.
