GUEST,Jim McLean Origin: I Will Go / Land of MacLeod (82* d) RE: Info on Clearence song 'Land Of MacLeod' 24 Jul 02

I'm afraid i missed out on the thread thing. My reply concerning The Land of McLeod was that I knew Roddy McMillan well and that he told me he heard the song from his mum. He sang his English version many times in the folk club in Glasgow's Trongate (1959/60). His friend Jimmy Reilly and a few of us used to go fishing at weekends and many a song was sung over our cups. Jimmy McGregor emasculated the song in my opinion by prettifying it but then again some people liked that. Cheers, Jim Mclean
