This is a beautiful album of Rick Stanley playing a low-headed Irish harp he designed and hand-built, singing five of his favorite traditional Scottish and Irish ballads. The CD also features two contemporary Scottish ballads: ‘Lover’s Heart’ written by Andy Stewart and Phil Cunningham, and ‘The Last Trip Home’ written by The Battlefield Band’s Davy Steele and John McCusker. The remaining five tracks feature a traditional air, and four original ballads written by Rick, including the title cut of the CD, a moving piece about Mary Queen of Scots and her loyal husband, the Earl of Bothwell.

Rick Stanley and co-singer/songwriter Pamela Polland formed The Gentle Soul in 1966. Rick and Pamela wrote, recorded and performed on the cutting edge of the Folk/Rock Era for the next three years. Although the Gentle Soul only released one album during that time, they surrounded themselves with the likes of Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Van Dyke Parks, Jack Neitzche, Larry Knechtel, and many other talented musicians. Produced by Terry Melcher (The Byrds, Paul Revere & The Raiders), the Gentle Soul recordings are a classic.

"...beautiful, ornate and captivating..."
