CD Reviews

Who says the Scots are mean ???
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The compilation of Jock Tamson's two albums on to one brilliant CD is amazing value. The music reeks of Scottish traditional sounds and yet it is exciting, new and inventive. The two fiddlers play some lovely shetland style tunes accompanied by guitar, whistle, mandolin, concertina and bodhran. Great rhythms and a "live" feel to the recording. Sounds like they're having fun. The songs are excellent, Tony Cuffe and Rod Patterson have very contrasting vocal styles, equally effective and great choice of material, highlights being "Lady Keith's Lament", "Hieland Soldier" and "Clarke Saunders". Much as I like Capercaillie's blend of celtic folk rock, Jock Tamson's Bairns are a more authentic Scottish band and, for me anyway, more consistently enjoyable. If you buy only one Scottish CD - THIS IS THE ONE !"
Fantastic Collection of Scottish Folk Music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this CD in a local store's Celtic Music bin two months ago and have been sending copies to friends every since. Of particular interest to me were Lady Keith's Lament, Hieland Soldier, and Clark Sanderson, but the whole collection is varied in style and superbly delivered. If I had to live with only one Celtic CD, this would be it!"
