Product Information

This CD includes an immediate digital download. Recordings were completed in March 2016 for “Revisited II” which was released on May 1st 2016. The album features contributions by Leatherat's fiddle player, Jono Watts and Iolair Sound Studios' Stuart Shearer on guitars. Here is what Ross Muir said about the album:

“Orcadian folk troubadour Ivan Drever’s previous solo album "Revisited (the Wolfstone Songs)", featured acoustic reinterpretations of some of Wolfstone's finest moments, and was extremely well received. It’s no surprise therefore that we now have Revisited II, which includes Wolfstone favourites: Tall Ships, Glass and the Can and the rarer Battle (the band’s full-on version tempered to a more dextrous, finger-picking charge of the light acoustic).

“At the heart of Revisited II however are some of Ivan’s earlier or now hard to come by songs, along with a couple of tunes from other band projects. So sit back and enjoy the Orkney inflected baritone of Ivan Drever delivering new interpretations of, among others, the beautiful air Leaving Stoer, Viking’s Bride (the lyrics, found in an old book, brought to musical life by Ivan’s melody), a solo rendition of Bonnie Lindsay (a highlight of the wonderful Lewis Blue album recorded with Duncan Chisholm) and the charming ballad Nothing Can Stop Us Now, originally recorded on the Drever-McGuire-Young album Gifts.

“Revisited II also becomes the home for two of Ivan’s most delicate, favoured and touching numbers: Dark Haired Ruby (written for his granddaughter) and Walk Beside Your Shoes, the solo version of which was only previously available as a non-album track digital download.”
