The lyrics of this version of Glenlogie, a traditional ballad, is to be found on page 386 of the Oxford Book of Ballads. The introduction arrangement is influenced by Dick Gaughan's introduction to his version, and the song itself a mixture of influences relating to Martin Carthy, Danny Spooner and Nic Jones. I strongly recommend you chase up their websites and clips if you like my version and particularly if you don't. It's a great story with self prophesy in the final verse. This is NOT a murder ballad and yet still fairly gripping for it's time. I recorded this after I developed a loss of feeling in the little finger and half of the ring finger of my left hand brought on by a pinched ulna nerve, so it was a relief to discover when arranging this ballad that I could still perform. I am no longer able to play bar-chords or certain other formations however. No matter, I can still play and to some degree use the offending appendages. I'm playing a de Gruchy Guitar with fairly old strings, about a year perhaps, and a Studio Projects vocal microphone. Cameras were very crude, a cheap Venus webcam, a cheap Aldi Travelor digital camera and a HTC desire phone camera. The video software is PowerDirector, which I am using for the first time (haven't made up my mind about it yet but enjoyed some of the features).
