Battlefield Band, New Spring

 

LP Temple Records 1991 - TP045

 

Il produttore Robin Morton svolge in questo caso anche il ruolo di tecnico del suono insieme a Moray Munro. Il progetto grafico di Graham Ogilvie Ŕ essenziale, fin troppo diremmo, ma il retro di copertina comprende i testi delle canzoni e informazioni dettagliate. La grande novitÓ dell'album Ŕ data dalla presenza del giovane violinista John MacCusker e dal grande vecchio Iain MacDonald.
