An easy listening musical tribute to Scotland opening with Sydney Torch’s brilliant organ solo of the Flying Scotsman hurtling from Kings Cross to Edinburgh.

Alternate vocal and orchestral tracks include all the top singers and bands such as Kenneth McKellar, Andy Stewart, Jimmy Shand, Sidney MacEwan, Harry Davidson, Robert Wilson, Gordon Mackenzie and Ian Wallace. Less famous but more notorious was Master Joe Petersen, actually a married Glaswegian woman call Mary O’Rourke who successfully masqueraded as a boy soprano for several years.

The album also contains several light music pieces including Malcolm Arnold’s marvellous Four Scottish Dances.
