Russell McCullagh: Guitar Solo & Fills

Engineered, Mixed & Produced by Peter Strachan using a Fostex M80 tape machine, Revox A700 and a Tascam DA-20 dat machine.

Re Mastered 2011, by Andy McGeoch at Tasty Music Productions.

This is the only song on the album which is not my own composition. When Ian let me first hear it, I just thought it was fab. Great tune and the lyrics are very clever. Ian was originally going to record this song with his own band but unfortunatley, they split up. As I was sitting with the drums and mandolin already recorded (and I loved the song) I asked Ian if I could finish the recording of the track. He gave me the ok.
So a few weeks later, I put down the acoustic guitars, bass and vocals. Then I phoned up Russell who came over and did a cracking solo. The guy is a top guitarist. Actually, it is quite inspiring sitting recording great players..... Peter

Another great song. I note that this is the only song from your "Holidays" album that you did not compose, but it sits really well with all the other tracks. Great album.
