Released in 2011, this collection by the Squid Jiggers is an homage to the vinyl record album. From the very first sounds on the album (the sound of a needle dropping on a record) this CD has the warmth and feel of a well-crafted record album from the golden age of analog recording. The track list includes classics such as “Mairi’s Wedding” and “I’ze the B’y,” as well as original tunes by Dave and Troy such as “The Stranger” and “Up Jumped the Dancers.”

Track List

1. Jack Was Every Inch a Sailor
2. Mairi’s Wedding / I’ll Tell Me Ma
3. The Bonnie Ship the Diamond
4. Up Jumped the Dancers
5. The Stranger
6. Paddy Lay Back
7. The Mingulay Boat Song
