The Beefcan Close

How many of you know the words to “The Beefcan Close”?  You dinnae ken the Beefcan Close?  Surely not?  Well, here you go.

This old song from Dundee, ‘The Beefcan Close’ is here brilliantly sung by a completely authentic Dundee voice, that of Annie Watkins on this occasion discretely accompanied by the Foundry Bar Band. I hope you will all benefit from the experience & excellent advice of the author of ‘The Beefcan close’ and remember if you go out on the spree to always first ‘tie yer money tae the tail o’ yer sark’

    I still have the original 33 1/3 RPM LP of the Lowland Folk Four. It was great then and it is super to hear it on here. Also – The Beefcan Close ,ha ha!! Have that on an old cassette tape too.

    The inimitable Annie Watkins; she was a character. She can be seen being interviewed on this clip on YouTube:

    My mum and my Aunts used to sing this song all the time at parties. It is so awesome to hear it after all these years
