This compilation album by Matt McGinn was first released on licence by Greentrax Recordings in 2003 and having recently negotiated an extension of the licence with Sony Music, theyare pleased to re-release the album on this, the 40th Anniversary of Matt’s death.
The humour, uncanny perceptiveness and rare talents of Matt McGinn made him a household name in Scotland and in folk circles throughout the world. He was a native of Gallowgate, one of Glasgow’s less affluent areas, a bizarre part of the old town in whose tenement closes and back courts grew the seeds of his music, poetry, social observations and unique humour.
