Scotland will never forget you, Maxine

Thanks for posting this original version. I'm partial to her 1955 version, though. It's got a hipper swing, and her voice in it is perfect. (She's good in this one, too. Just sayin'. Lol.)

oh, I'm just back from an all day bike ride to the bonnie bonnie banks o' loch lomond. They did look bonnie against the september evening sky, I must admit.

splendidcurves says:

The real swing, cats. Plus Claude Thornhill!

Michael Klein says:

Thanks for remembering this highly talented, but oddly neglected singer of the swing era (and Claude Thornhill was no slouch either!)

Ken McKim says:

Just finished a late 50s novel by Herman Wouk that referenced her doing Scottish songs. Nice pipes and arrangements.

Laurel Kildare says:

Always one of my favs. My mother, a Brit, would sing this around the house back in my childhood days.

Shabannie says:

You made a wonderful tribute to a talented singer!

I got to see the Loch 12 years ago. I'll be thinking of you there with a single malt toast of my own to you, Maxine, and the Loch in July. Bon voyage.

David Speake says:

Great singer. I'm going to Loch Lomond in July. I'll toast a wee dram or two to beautiful Maxine. Thanks for the track.

Just bought her record!!!

@3investigators Some of the best music of the 1920s -30s, was being recycled from the 1800s. . . .and a lot of the music that people think is a wonderful new composition today has been revived and resuscitated from at least a century ago. Never would have thought Loch Lomond was so old tho. Thanks for stopping by and chatting. PH01

preservationhall01 says:

@3investigators Old is right, I think it was recorded by various artists as far back as the early 1900s.

Her 1984 "Cotton Club – Arlen & Koehler" album on Milan records – is quite fantastic.
