Happy Hogmanay

Last Hogmanay I posted The Colours by The Men They Couldn't Hang.
It struck me when considering today's post that TMTCH are probably the perfect band to play today even although they are not Scottish.
Rightly best known for their version of The Green Fields of France (the only song to have appeared twice on CCM so far) they are not a one trick pony and have produced some great records.
Indeed, Night of a Thousand Candles is just outside the Top 10 albums of all time and will be 30 years old in 2015. One of my New Year's resolutions should really be to get round to finishing that series.
Their next two albums How Green is the Valley and Waiting for Bonaparte were not too shabby either

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015.

The Men They Couldn't Hang - Ironmasters

  1. Blimey, I haven't thought about The Men They Couldn't Hang for years!
    Wishing a very Happy Hogmanay to you and yours CC from this Sassenach :-)

  2. Ironmasters, now there's a song that from time to time is one of the best five songs ever recorded. But they're no Spinto Band.....Happy New Year to you both.

  3. Happy new year to all the gang at CCM.

  4. Two great tracks to top off a stellar year for CC Music. All the best for 2015 to you and yours CC...

  5. Happy Last Day of the Year to you...and Happy new year.

    My Hogmanay has!
