Alex Left A Legacy

There were two recordings that he didn’t share with his fan base before he died.  After months of careful thought and consideration, I decided I would be remiss if I didn’t offer these to his fans and friends.

The first, “Live at the Sawmill” was recorded by a friend of his, Jim Scales, back in 1975 when he was entertaining audiences at “The Sawmill”, an upscale restaurant in Pasadena, California.  As you will hear when you listen to it, he sang folk songs of the day as well as some Scottish ditties.



The second is an LP “Seasons” that he recorded in the early 1980’s.  He co-wrote two songs, “Seasons Come, Seasons Go” and “I’d Rather Live Alone With Me”.  As you know, country music originated from folk music of the British Isles and Alex enjoyed both listening to and playing it.  This album is a combination of country music as well as some traditional Scottish folk songs.


If you want to hear Alex throughout his career, you’ll need to have in your catalog of music the following CDs:

“The Cumberland Three”

“Live at the Sawmill”


“Live in Concert”

“From the Sea to the Shore”

And, of course, all of his CDs recorded in-between all of the above!!  (Sounds like Alex talking, doesn’t it?!)

I will be manufacturing his “Live at the Sawmill” and “Seasons” and have them available for purchase on his website in a few weeks.  If you would like to reserve a copy, please send an email to me at:  As you may already know, the physical inventory of all of Alex’s CDs and his DVD have been depleted.  At this time, with the exception of these two “new” offers, I do not plan to manufacture anymore of his music, but will and do have it available for purchase as downloads.  Once the physical CDs of “Live at the Sawmill” and “Seasons” are gone, they will only be available as downloads.

With heartfelt appreciation for the love and support you provided to Alex and I,

Linda Beaton
