Traditional and contemporary folk from the British Isles

VARIOUS ARTISTS The Streets of Glasgow TSDL226

tsdl226This record is a partial musical portrait of Glasgow, the city that more than any other in these islands, arouses shame, admiration and very real fear – the Glasgow of the old tradition, half-pastoral, half-urban, and nothing at all to do with the haggis or saffron kilts or tongued brogues; the Glasgow where the bewildered newcomer from the Highlands faces the line of a hundred grimy tenements; the Glasgow of the Hampden roar, of the bitter snarl of Orange against Green, of the shrill ironies of tough ten-year-olds of the courts of Govan and the concrete wastes of Easterhouse; the Glasgow of the factory gate demo, the Social Security queue, and the UCS work-in.
