Limited 180g Vinyl Edition.

Though primarily steeped in the traditions of folk and Celtic music, acclaimed Scottish singer-songwriter Dick Gaughan has enjoyed a lengthy and far reaching career in a variety of creative pursuits.

'Handful of Earth' was the first album Dick Gaughan had recorded in Scotland. It seemed to strike a chord with people and it is the most successful recording he has made in terms of acclaim and sales. It was Melody Maker's Album of the Year in 1981 and in 1989 it was voted in the Critics' Poll, and more important, the Readers' Poll, in Folk Roots as Album of the Decade.

It has had hundreds of reviews, good and bad. The album was originally released as an LP on Topic Records and later re-issued as CD. This current version is a high quality reprint on 180g Vinyl, using the original artwork and inner sleeve with lyrics and a very welcome addition to the 6 Spices catalogue, especially now, since Dick Gaughan received a Lifetime Achievement Award during February 2010's BBC 2 Folk Music Awards' ceremony.
