When people think of traditional Scottish Music, they usually imagine the sound of pipes, accordions and fiddles playing reels and soulful laments. While this is still true, it’s not the only music being performed by Scottish musicians today. Now there is the sound of FOURGOODMEN, the latest manifestation of Celtic Song.

What makes FOURGOODMEN unique is their personnel. They are all original members of major Scottish bands who have enjoyed huge success in the Music Industry. Between them, they have had almost 60 top 40 singles and 20 top 10 albums, 8 of them # 1's. Total records sold to date: 40,000,000. Now, in the 21st Century, they have come together to perform the hit songs that became the soundtrack for the lives of a generation, world-wide.

The band's debut show was at Glasgow Green, July 2005, performing to an audience of 15,000. Then top of the bill at The Mull of Kintyre Music Festival, Campbeltown, August 2005. Further high profile concerts and festivals in Scotland and Ireland have followed since. All sell outs. Among their other notable appearances were Real Radio's Big In Falkirk Weekend in April 30, 2006; July 1st at “The Big Weekend” Scottish Borders Music Festival in Galashiels, Scotland; July 8-9, 2006 outdoors at Glasgow Green and the RetroFest in Scotland in August 2007.

Due to the reaction FOURGOODMEN have experienced live and requests from radio stations in America, the UK and Europe for fresh material to play, the band have started work on an album of brand new songs. FOURGOODMEN hope they will become new hits to add to the already established ones.

On their debut tour of North America in the winter of 2006 the band played all the major 80’s hits by Simple Minds and Big Country that all their fans were clamoring to hear once again as well as a selection of their new songs. This CD is a Limited Edition Tour Sampler featuring 4 live tracks and 4 studio tracks which are demo versions of songs from the forthcoming CD.




to write a review


Thanks CD Baby for sending this CD over to Holland. It only took one week via normal mail and as it was just after xmas that I got it I think thats pretty fast.
Thanks Fourgoodmen for making this CD, I totally love all the songs on it and play it over and over again. If someone reading this doesn't have the CD go and get it a.s.a.p.
Love from Holland, Willemina.

Dominique Viroux

Great !
Hope to see FGM soon in Belgium ! Buy this Cd, it's 5 stars !

Stuart Mitchell

The Live stuff is great but the studio was surprisingly better
I bought this album as I loved early Simple Minds, Big Country, and there is not enough H20 to buy. I thought the Live tracks would be the highlight until I got to the studio stuff...amazing, cant wait for a "proper" album to be released. Thanks Guys, hope you play London sometime soon. Also, thanks to CD Baby for an amazing service, 5 stars.

We want more
This CD really wets the appetite for more from FGM. The first tracks are live ones from there recent U.S tour and they follow with some excellant new material. Buy now you wont be disappointed.


It's always great to hear a band perform live then get their CD and it sounds the same. This is a brilliant CD! Every song is great! I would highly recommend it for anyone.


One of the Best CD's I've heard in a long time!
With only 8 tracks to “Heart of Winter” it’s a CD that leaves you craving for more! With a mixture of live and studio demos, the CD showcases 4GM talent to the hilt.

With new songs that keep the band young and fresh and will stand the test of time, to old songs that will have you feeling nostalgic. Well worth the time and money to add this little gem to your CD collection.


Great album, love their sound!
I like the combination of live material and studio recordings.
And the song Stars Will Fall is definately my favorite. Giving me tears in my eyes everytime I listen to it.


This is as close to perfection as you can get. It is simply amazing.
