I got this CD for two of the tracks. Most of the other tracks are available on other albums. That seems to be the problem with Silly Wizard, great music, but most are repeated on other albums, so one doesn't get very much for the money.

CD Reviews

Wonderful music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are just not enough bands like Silly Wizard! Listen to the samples for "Chill Eastern Winds" to get a feel for this album but the best songs are the amusing "Willie Archer" and the amazing Irish ballad (the band is Scottish) "Blackbird of Sweet Avondale".I strongly suggest you give some of their other music a try. Every fan of Celtic music who ever listened to SW instantly buys everything they made (sadly, not enough). You should also listen to some of Andy Stewart's post SW work such as "Fire In The Glen" and "At It Again". You will thank me later."
Anything from Silly Wizard

"This group's last offerings date to about 1988 but are timeless in artistry and musicianship. I must recommend to anyone who collects Celtic music to consider this band's music as worthy to add. The vocals so humorous or so poetic that few should be disappointed. Silly Wizard is one of my favorites that I never saw in person though I have a VCS recording from Green Linnet that is invaluable to me. Even my kids like watching this with me and my wife. Their music is not for playing in the background. You must listen, pay attention and then, play it again."
