This very "traditional" set of recordings may not be to many a modern sessioneer’s taste, but if you get a chance to listen to this try and see beyond the Scottish "Schmaltz" setting and listen to Starr’s exquisite playing. You might even pick up some great tunes - I counted a total of 47 tunes! Thoroughly enjoyable.
