Old Blind Dogs - Live (Scotland 1999) @320

Between 1992 and 1998, The Old Blind Dogs featuring Ian Benzie and Davy Cattanach introduced the world to a new sound in traditional Scottish music. Some have called it "sexy folk music". The blending of Ian's rich and romantic voice with the groove of Davy's percussion gave the Dogs a sound that had never been heard before, and will not be duplicated again.
With the change in lineup, Ian and Davy have departed, the sound of OBD has also changed. Here the is a recording from the golden era of the Old Blind Dogs. Here are the Dogs at their best, live in concert.
Live at The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen.

Thank you! I've never heard of OBD, but I'm looking forward to hearing this.

I saw on a much earlier post that nobody comments or leaves thank-yous very often, so I'd like to rectify that. I've gotten several albums from here that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I forgot to say anything. I'm sorry, and thanks for some great music!
