I Saw the Wild Geese Flee
Jim Reid's 'Wild Geese' album, first issued in 1984, immediately established him as one of Scotland's finest singers. The Wild Geese: 'Far abin the Angus Straths I saw the Wild Geese Flee'
The album includes many of Jim's finest songs including his setting of Helen Cuickshamk's poem Shy Geordie as a song Up The Noran Water and his own ballad Vinney Den. The title song The Wild Geese/ The Norland Wind written as a poem by the Angus poet violet Jacob and set to music by Jim has now become a classic.
