Description

The McCalmans, who retired in 2010, made 26 albums and recorded over 400 songs in their 46 years as professional musicians. Twelve of those albums were on Greentrax during the 24 years the 'Macs' remained loyal to the Scottish label plus the double compilation CD: 'The Greentrax Years', released in 2009, and still available (CDTRAX350).

'Lost Tracks' contains 19 tracks of the first, the second and the final line-up of the group and it is quite remarkable that there were only two line-up changes in 46 years, especially when you consider that one of the changes was due to the untimely death of the great Derek Moffat. The album includes tracks, from the three line-ups, plus a guest appearance by the wonderful Barbara Dickson who often sang with the Macs in their early days. There is a mixture of traditional songs and contemporary material, including of course contributions from the pens of Ian McCalman and the late, sadly missed Nick Keir, two prolific and brilliant songwriters. Pride of place goes to Nick on Track 1, with the stunning 'Cold Night in this Old Town'.

19 previously unrelaesed McCalmans' tracks from old studio recordings, live songs and other sources selected and then edited and mastered by Ian McCalman. Includes recordingts by the first, the second and third McCalman's liine-up and is a mixture of traditional and comntemporary songs, some from the prolific pens of Ian McCalman and the late, sadly missed Nick Keir. There is even a track with Barbara Dickson, who sometimes sang with the McCalmans in their early days. This will be a rare treat for the legions of McCalmans's fans who were saddened by the demise of the group and feared there would not be another McCalman's album. This is a vintage collection of songs.
