Two for the price of one this week.

The hard drive contains a couple of songs attributed solely (as such!) to Norman Blake, both courtesy of compilations:-

mp3: Norman Blake – Only With You
mp3: Norman Blake & John Burnside – Girl

The former is from this CD marking 25 years of the wonderful and excellent Marina Records, based in Hamburg but with a lot of connections to the Scottish music scene, often via Douglas Macintyre and Creeping Bent Records.

The latter is from this CD in which various Scottish singers/bands hooked up with poets to create new songs.

Today’s post is dedicated to my dear friend Andrea Peviani (Conventional Records) who, from living close to Milan, has had to deal longer with the dreadful impact and consequences of COVID-19 than most of the rest of us.
