“My Bonie Bell”

Posted on Updated on

The new Robbie Burns comp finally has a name, My Bonie Bell, after the bard’s 1791 poem of the same title. The album’s title song, My Bonie Bell, is a new track by Robert Scott who already contributed a song to Ae Fond Kiss, our first Burns comp.


My Bonie Bell (Robert Burns)


The smiling Spring comes in rejoicing,
And surly Winter grimly flies;
Now crystal clear are the falling waters,
And bonie blue are the sunny skies.
Fresh o’er the mountains breaks forth the morning,
The ev’ning gilds the ocean’s swell;
All creatures joy in the sun’s returning,
And I rejoice in my bonie Bell.

The flowery Spring leads sunny Summer,
The yellow Autumn presses near;
Then in his turn comes gloomy Winter,
Till smiling Spring again appear:
Thus seasons dancing, life advancing,
Old Time and Nature their changes tell;
But never ranging, still unchanging,
I adore my bonie Bell.

Howdie US customers,

Jay Clarkson‘s Spur and Darryl Baser‘s Raw Selfie both have arrived at the Grapefruit Record Club‘s warehose in Omaha, NE. US customer can order those items either through the Grapefruit website or through our own website. Either way, the vinyl will be mailed by the wonderful people at Grapefruit which will make shipping a lot cheaper for you. LPs are US$21.00 each which admittedly is more than what we used to charge, but you’ll still be saving money.
