In this book Alan has chosen his favourite traditional songs from those he has sung and recorded, but mainly this is document of the considerable body of the songs and tunes that he has composed over the years. Many have become Battlefield Band classics and are becoming part of the modern folk repertoire. With guitar chords and explanatory notes for 37 songs and 27 tunes, this is a collection for anyone interested in the songs and music of Scotland, old and new.

Bell - Thochts O' Hame And CD 11.49 Beyond Annie, now in her eighties, decided that her life's work should be recorded by some means so that others could share her wonderful cameos from a time gone by.
