In Memoriam Davy Steele – Singer, Song-writer, Instrumentalist
“We keep the music going”. How often has that simple principle heartened us in adversity. With his characteristic warmth and pawky good humour Davy Steele kept the music going throughout his life… and well beyond. His lively performances, culminating in his stint with the Battlefield Band, and his own poignant songs of weal and woe (the haunting “Summerlee” album, for example) will ring in our ears for generations to come.

I am priviledged to have collaborated with Davy in this series. His inimitable tracks on vols. 4 and 5 – “My love is like a red, red, rose”; “John Barleycorn”; “Robin Shure in hairist”; etc. – are classics in their kind.

With gratitude,
Dr Fred Freeman

  1. O were my love yon lilac fair, Ye jovial boys
  2. The noble Maxwells
  3. O, open the door
  4. There was five Carlins
  5. While larks with little wing, Lovely was she
  6. o why the deuce, Carl an the king come, I murder hate
  7. O, ken ye what Meg o' the mill has gotten
  8. Corn rigs are bonie
  9. Your friendship, O how can I be blithe
  10. As I cam in by our gate-end, There was a jolly gauger
  11. Why tell thy lover, Musing
  12. O, leeze me on my spinnin-wheel
  13. Where braving angry winter's storms
  14. My heart's in the highlands
  15. O, Kenmure's on and awa, The Campbells are comin
  16. Will ye go to the Indies
  17. O thou pale orb
  18. Thine am I
  19. The smiling Spring
  20. My heart is wae
  21. Ye banks and braes and streams
