Dick Gaughan - A Different Kind of Love Song (Scotland 1983) @320

After the surprising success of 'Handful of Earth', I was faced with a problem in terms of making a new recording. I had no intention of making 'HoE' Mark 2. I new I couldn't and that, at that stage in my musical development, 'HoE' was the best I could hope to achieve in adding something worthwhile to the reinterpretation of traditional Scots song in an acoustic setting. If I tried to do it again, I would be in danger of becoming formulaic and mechanistic and I have always held a deep suspicion towards "style" for its own sake.
Also, as I said in what I wrote about 'Handful of Earth', "It was quite clearly time to stop reporting and start participating." This album was my putting that into action.
