There's a south by sou'westerly force eight coming in strong. Across the continental shelf from the cold grey Malin beyond.
The need to keep control. The need to stand alone at the edge of the world. The adrenalin infrastructure bringing on it's troubles some more. All the laws of the jungle stranded on your latest shore. But the waves hold the healer force. Brilliant live album. I lost my copy of this year's ago so I was really pleased when I spotted it on amazon. Soince then I have live in Jo'burg.
Despite working in Europe on a couple of work projects I had not been back to Scotland until finally in I flew into Glasgow Airport for a couple of days with family. My father had died the year before.
So there I was driving to Greenock my dad's birthplace and where his younger brother Alan lived , listening to Johnny Clegg on the cd player. Then it got to a song called the crossing, which is about the african belief that a year after a person's death is a significant time.
As my father had died about a year earlier it felt very appropriate to me as a Scottish South African to drive through Scotland listening to a song in English and Zulu. I questioned whether I was South African or Scottish. A short while later I was listening to the live version of hearts of olden glory on the free cd from classic Rock magazine. I had heard some Runrig studio stuff - but thought this was great much better.
I got this live album to see if it was really better than the studio versions. A couple of observations - Runrig are way better live than in the studio The song 'Hearts of Olden Glory' is to me a song for my late father.
It is almost a throw away ditty in the studio album - but here it is a lot more. I will be bringing my family to Scotland in the next year or so - cash flow permitting.
