This is an album that has been critically acclaimed around the world. It features the best of Scottish folk music (Gaughan) with the best of Irish folk music (Irvine). Includes both traditional and contemporary songs.

Irvine's traditional Irish ballads The Creggan White Hare, Captain Coulston, and Captain Thunderbolt, and Gaughan's two Scottish selections, Flooer's o' the Forest and Lads o' the Fair, are all definitive performances. Even Lads o' the Fair which was written by Brian McNeill, is given a better treatment here by Gaughan's rich voice. The two covers of American songs, The Almanac Singers' Dodger Song and Bob Dylan's My Back Pages hold up a little less well, but are still fun to hear and compare with the originals. The greatest number on the disc is At Twenty-One, a heartbreaking song of unrequited love, which Irvine learned from Robert Cinnamond and which has not often been recorded. Irvine sings it beautifully. Throughout the album, Gaughan's crisp guitar and Irvine's sparkling bouzouki provide the backbones of lovely arrangements... - Dirty Linen
