CONTRABAND, the eponymous album from six of Scotland's finest musicians. Heavily influenced by Fairport Convention, this classic folk-rock album is one of Scotland's best kept secrets and stands up well to comparisions with Steeleye Span, Pentangle and Fairport themselves.

Originally released on Transatlantic in 1974, the album features traditional folk songs, contemporary ballads and self-penned tracks in an up-tempo folk-rock style.
