ON THE ROAD

I was uncertain why I wanted this old photograph to have a place on the site but now I know

Once upon a time I drove this road on a return journey to the small town of MASSET on what were then called THE QUEEN 

CHARLOTTE  ISLANDS and are now known as HAIDA GWAII  The image lower down the page was taken with the same camera

about the same time It had been shipped up North from VANCOUVER and was used frequently whilst on the islands and later in my

work with children on my return to GLASGOW SCOTLAND

It was in MASSET that I wrote and first recorded - on a reel to reel deck - some of the songs which in one version or another feature on

the material which receives mention on this site 

 

The road  into Masset Haida Gwaii - as it was a long time agao

The road into Masset Haida Gwaii - as it was a long time agao

This song is the second track on the CD KISS DEEP and the Missing Beat It has had several titles: ON THE ROAD TO

HAIDA GWAII, KEEP GOING AND DON'T LOOK BACK and GO BUY YOURSELF A SUBARU 

It will be obvious which one best suits this occasion
