I wonder why a man born with a fine name like Richard Peter would want to change it to Dick Gaughan? Whatever, I look forward to listening to this. Many thanks for posting it.

Dick Gaughan — The Harvard Tapes. Described by Dick as the perfect song, Westlin Winds celebrates the seasons, nature and love; and never fails to elicit a number of tear-filled eyes. Unfortunately, in an MRI scan confirmed Dick had suffered a stroke, and since then has had to forego live performance as part of a lengthy recovery.

One of Scotland's greatest trad artists, guitarist Dick Gaughan is known as a diehard Socialist leftie, as well as one of the world's greatest guitar flatpickers. His career has ranged from straight trad to a brief fling at Celtic rock, and then into a near-complete submersion into politcal song during the Thatcher-Reagan years of the s. His records have softened ever so slightly since those days, although his political commitment remains strong. A powerful and charming live performer, Gaughan is sure to bring a tear to your eyes, either because of some sad tale of woe, a particularly beautiful melody, or perhaps a particularly daft joke.
