Dick Gaughan - Live in Edinburgh (Scotland 1985) @VBR

By request

Recorded live in the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh during the 1984 Edinburgh International Festival.

In early January 1984, I was doing a gig in the Star Club in Glasgow. I got to the second verse of the second song and my voice went. It was 5 months before I could speak and 7 months before I could sing again. This concert was the first I had given and I was absolutely terrified. Edinburgh being my home town, the audience that night was largely friends who knew how I felt and when I walked out on the stage, the emotional support from them was like a large pair of arms giving me a huge hug; one of the most remarkable and wonderful moments of my life.
(Dick Gaughan).

Dear Crimson King, thank you so so much for posting this rare album. I last heard it in 1998 on a radio show in Montreal and have been trying to locate it since then!
