Contraband - Contraband

Contraband
CONTRABAND, the eponymous album from six of Scotland's finest musicians. Heavily influenced by Fairport Convention, this classic folk-rock album is one of Scotland's best kept secrets and stands up well to comparisions with Steeleye Span, Pentangle and Fairport themselves.

Originally released on Transatlantic in 1974, the album features traditional folk songs, contemporary ballads and self-penned tracks in an up-tempo folk-rock style.

Featuring the superb vocal talents of Mae McKenna who went on to have an extensive solo career as well as providing backing vocals to everyone from Pete Townshend to Kylie.

Multi-instrumentalist brothers Billy and George Jackson along with fiddle player John Martin formed the legendary Ossian. Members of Contraband later joined Easy Club, Isla and Gryphon.

"…if you haven’t heard it before it’s a glorious step back into the past.”
