Music From the Vaults Volume 1 features thirteen songs and tunes, some with Ivan solo, some in collaboration with friends and, in some cases, relatives! Below are notes about the tunes, although Ivan is not 100% sure exactly where and when all of them came from it is certain that they cover the years from 2001 to 2012.

  • The Rizla – A great tune by the wonderful Scottish Fiddler, Charlie McKerron.  Ivan plays guitar along with Charlie on fiddle, Jim Hunter on guitar and Kris Drever on guitar.
  • The Ballad Of James And Isa Cursiter – Ivan says this was recorded “live somewhere” , it was definitely recorded in Scotland!
  • The Flower of Kristiansand – Recorded live in Scotland, as Ivan says in his introduction: “for his Norwegian wife, Linda who comes from Norway!”
  • The Last Thing On My Mind – Again recorded with Charlie, Jim and Kris at Inchcriach, Aviemore around 2000
  • El Caballo Blanco (The White Horse) – a live recording of a tune which has never been on an album to date, Ivan wrote this after seeing a white horse in Spain.
  • Brave Souls – Recorded at Celtic Connections in 2002 with the band Clueless.  Clueless were the late Gordon Duncan, Sharon Kelly, Ali Hutton, Ross Ainslie, Malcolm MacDonald, Kris Drever and Brian MacAlpine Esq.
  • Restless Leaves – again from the Celtic Connections gig with Clueless
  • Speed Of The Sound Of Loneliness – The great John Prine song recorded in Scotland a couple of years ago.
  • The Martin Johnson Set – More from Celtic Connections with piping by Gordon Duncan and a 17 year old Ross Ainslie!
  • Blue Orkney Sky – A different mix of the song that appeared on Notes From An Island
  • Fiona MacDonald's / The Road To Joppa – A live version of two tunes Ivan says “I seem to have been playing forever”.  Fiona MacDonald is one of Ivan and Linda's closest friends!
  • Remember – Another remix from the album “Notes From An Island” featuring some fine electric guitar from Stuart Shearer
