These recordings are in The School of Scottish Studies and are the performances transcribed in the book, except for (*) where the original recordings were not made available.

The recordings on this CD were originally prepared as a companion to the book The Folk Music Revival in Scotland by Ailie Munro which includes a section on The Folk Revival in Gaelic Song by Morag MacLeod, and first published in 1984 by Kahn & Averill. The songs for the book were chosen primarily for content and performance, and as illustrating different categories. The recordings were made over a span of 33 years mostly at public performances with differing local conditions. Not unnaturally there is variation in technical quality throughout the CD.
