Grace & Pride celebrates the 20th anniversary of Britain's leading Celtic band, Capercaillie (pronounced cap-er-cay-lee). The double CD anthology contains 38 tracks taken from each of the band's 15 albums, including previously unreleased, ultra-rare and long deleted tracks. Capercaillie have been credited with being the major force in bringing Celtic music to the world stage, and their unique fusion of Gaelic culture and contemporary sound has always stretched boundaries in their quest to keep the music evolving. On Grace and Pride the track listing follows the band back in time from last year?s Choice Language to their debut release in 1984 Cascade, taking in every album they have released along the way. Grace and Pride: Anthology 2004-1984 is a fascinating journey through the creative evolution of one of Scotland?s and roots music?s most enduring and successful bands.

"I've adored Capercaillie ever since I grabbed a handful of their early works in Edingurgh more than 10 years ago. I was hoping this one compilation would be the one I took wherever I went. But it's not. I'll still be hauling around 10 CDs. (Yeah, I need an MP3 player!) A few songs are better than the originals, more are less good. One--the lovely "Oh Mo Dhutaich"--is more than a minute shorter. "Stinging Rain" is torture, with its simple beat replacing the original beautiful orchestration. About a half of the tracks are jigs and reels--great at a ceilidh to dance to, but otherwise, well...The band's virtuosity is far better displayed on their tour de force "Grandfather Mountain." Many of my favorites didn't make the cut, and I sure can't tell why some others did. Now I'm waiting anxiously for the next CD, hoping this trend won't continue."

"Th anthology is a great selection of the music of Capercaillie - it may be the great voice of Karen Matheson - I just cant stop listening to it!!!"
