Robin Hall & Jimmie Macgregor. Two Heids Are Better Than Yin' We asked a wee man busking outside a Glasgow cinema, if he knew any folksongs. When we showed enthusiasm for 'Two Heids', among such collectors' items as 'Kentucky Waltz' and 'Davy Crockett', he expressed his wonderment that "Two young fellas like youse wid want tae sing a' they auld fashint songs". Auld fashint" or no, 'Two Heids' has become one of our favourites. The songs on this album constitute only a very small part of their repertoire, which ranges through Glasgow children's ditties, ballads, student songs, to topical numbers. BANKS O' SICILY was written by Hamish Henderson, the Scottish poet and folklorist. He wrote it while serving during the second World War and it expresses the feelings of men longing for home, yet bound to strange places.

Robin Hall was born in Edinburgh in 1936 but spent most of his early years in Glasgow. He is a direct descendant of Rob Roy MacGregor and of Mungo Park, the explorer. His mother had been an opera singer, and Robin was nurtured on a generous diet of classical music and music hall songs. As a teenager, he played with a traditional jazz group, studied the piano, and spent his spare time digging up American folk songs and investigating the folk material of his native Scotland  . He is very keen on harmony singing and has met an ideal partner in Robin. Together they have built up a large repertoire of songs ranging through Glasgow children's ditties, ballads, students' songs, and topical numbers. ROBIN and JIMMIE are Britain's most widely known and popular folk singers.
