In the run-up to the 6 Music Festival, taking place this year in Glasgow, we repeat highlights of a series first broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland in which musician Davie Scott reveals the stories behind classic Scottish albums.

In this episode Davie chats to Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins about the chaotic sessions for their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas, released in 1990, and now acknowledged as a masterpiece. Robin also reveals something of the mystery of the enigmatic lead singer Elizabeth Fraser's extraordinary lyrics and vocal style.
