The fictional village of Inversnecky was the invention of Aberdonian Harry Gordon. On this CD, many characters within the village are considered, from the barber to the beadle. Each of Harry Gordon's presentations follow a similar format with a song followed by some witty patter and then a finishing verse. Comparatively little known south of the border, probably due to difficulties of accent and lifestyle, Harry Gordon's popularity in his native Scotland was tremendous.
