Product Information

The only album recorded by Ivan and Dick Clarke released in 1988.

After Knowe o' Deil's final album in 1987, Ivan Drever's partner Ian Cooper changed direction bringing their partnership to an end. Sadly “Coop” passed away in July 2019. Ivan Drever soon teamed up with Dick Clarke from Skye.

This is their only album and it shows Ivan and Dick as a very powerful acoustic duo. Ivan and Dick performed on both the UK folk circuit and the international stage. Their mixture of traditional and self-penned songs was clearly very popular with audiences as a recently discovered sound desk recording of a concert in Boston USA from 1989 shows.

The vinyl and cassette editions of this album are much sought after and very rarely appear for sale, hence this digital re-issue.
