Product Description

• Although he died forty years ago, the reputation of Matt McGinn endures and even expands. Having left behind a dazzling legacy of more than five hundred songs, the life’s work of the man dubbed “Scotland’s Woody Guthrie” by Tom Paxton was commemorated in 2004 with a concert that was staged in New York on Broadway, where Pete Seeger suggested that “…if there’s a human race here in hundreds of years, people alive then will still be singing his songs”.

• One of the key figures of the folk revival in Scotland, McGinn was a prodigiously talented singer/songwriter who moved effortlessly between ribald humour, topical novelties, good-natured parodies, children’s verse, tender love songs and heavily politicised protest material.

• This 2CD anthology represents his four-year spell in the late Sixties with leading folk label Transatlantic, for whom he recorded a quartet of albums that contain many of his best-loved and most enduring songs – including ‘Coorie Doon’ and ‘Three Nights And A Sunday’, both of which would be included alongside the likes of Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly and Bob Dylan in the Smithsonian’s Top One Hundred Folk Songs of the 20th Century.

• This 2-CD, offers Matt McGinn’s entire output for the legendary Transatlantic Records for the first time.

• Taken from the original master tapes, many of the tracks have never been released on CD before.
