Dick Gaughan - Redwood Cathedral (Scotland 1998) @320

Gaughan's weathered brogue is enough to make a song memorable. But he also has a knack for gathering fine songs, both originals and covers, that fit beautifully into his style. On this set, Gaughan opens with an understated but powerful "Muir and the Master Builder" by Brian McNeill and even plies his magic with Townes Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty." As he wends his way through a sublime take on Pete Seeger's "Turn, Turn, Turn," it becomes clear that Gaughan has a gift for phrasing that puts the listener at ease.

Dear CrimsonKing,
I am looking for "A different kind of love song" by Dick Gaughan, but I can't find it on the whole web. Do you have this one?

Great to rediscover Gaughan, and be inspired to dig out Handful of Earth. I love his versions of the Brian McNeill songs, but Pancho & Lefty - well can't beat Emmylou Harris on that. THANKS for this.
