thanks Bob, never managed to get the hang of doing these link things!

The Shand recordings sound much better listened to through decent headphones rather than the laptop speaker which makes them sound 'tinny' I use Goodmans GHP02 which are big padded ones with a volume control rather than the little things you stick in your ear

I know this is hard to believe, but I was talking to a friend on the other side of the pond and he didn't know who Jimmy Shand was. I am a wee bittie biased so would someone else please spell this out.

Nothing wrong with a bit of bias - lets call it enthusiasm!

There are two official biographies of Sir Jimmy, both of which had his approval and are accurate. They come up on ebay from time to time and are well worth a read!

Jimmy Shand by David Phillips 1976

The Jimmy Shand Story by Ian Cameron 1998

There is also the Shand Family Website with some history . http://www.jimmyshand.com . This is run by Jimmy shand jnr and has for sale some top class CDs produced from the original masters owned by the family and very carefully remastered . Also 2 books of Sir Jimmys own compositions
