This is a compilation of Rod’s two early solo albums ‘Two Hats’ and ‘Smiling Waved Goodbye’.

Rod is one of Scotland’s finest singers, with limitless depth and versatility. While best known for his work with the groups Jock Tamson’s Bairns, The Easy Club and Ceolbeg, he also follows a successful solo career and is always in demand for stage, radio and TV work. Rod has a rich, flexible and expressive voice, with a rare sensitivity for the song and a superb sense of timing.

Rod recorded his first solo album Two Hats for Greentrax in 1987 and followed this up with Smiling Waved Goodbye in 1988. He has since gone on to record a third solo album for Greentrax, Songs From The Bottom Drawer, a collection of Burns Songs.

The first two highly acclaimed albums have now been compiled to fit on to one CD. The compilation includes The Bleacher Lass o’ Kelvinhaugh * Burns classics My Nannie O, Willie Wassle and The Steggie * big ballads Lord Gordon’s Kitchen Boy, Earl Richard and Dowie Dens of Yarrow (Rod is a master of the big ballad) and also some surprising inclusions such as the Rogers and Hart favourite My Funny Valentine, Cole Porter’s Every Time We Say Goodbye and Paul Simon’s I Do It For Your Love.

Rod is accompanied by Dick Lee on Two Hats and Jack Evans, Hamish Moore, Dick Lee, Ron Shaw and James MacKintosh on the Smiling Waved Goodbye tracks.

‘Paterson is perhaps the finest singer I have heard in years’ (Folk Notes, USA)

‘Rod is arguably one of Scotland’s finest singers’ (Folk Roots, UK)

‘One of the most beautiful and agile voices in Scotland’ (The Scotsman)
