== Sleeve notes ==
I first had the pleasure of meeting Bongshang at a concert in Lerwick in September 1993. Although it took me a long time to say their name, it only took me a few seconds to become a fan of their music. Their individual styles combine to make a new and innovative sound, blending traditional and contemporary elements from several world sources, and pinning it all together, the one thing synonymous with the Shetland Islands - talent.It won't take you long to learn their name, you'll be hearing a lot of it.


== Production notes ==
This was the first CD to be produced in Shetland and sold out in four days
Crude was recorded in the Garrison Theatre, Lerwick, by sound engineer Stevie Hook and Bongshang members
The album was originally released on CD and cassette on Bongshang's own label "Doovf Records". It was later re-released and distributed internationally by the "Iona" record label.
The song 'Dig a Hole' features lyrics by Harry Horse of Swamptrash
