5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet 8 Sep 2000
By Robert
Format:Audio CD
The Battlefield Band have been around for more than 25 years and only one of the original members is left. But throughout all that time, the descendants of the original band have remained true to the recurrent themes of the music. The newest fiddler is John McCusker who was voted The Scotsman's young musician of 1999. Watching him on stage is amazing with energy and skill which overflows into the audience. The CD is a good representation of the show and brings back the pleasure of having seen the band live. The lyrics are sometimes funny and often wistful, and always written so the audience can identify with them.

Bought it for the track, "The Last Trip Home" about the end of the working Clydesdale horses: very good. Rest of the tracks not so appealing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neil C. Womelduff: Iron Breugh Band Kansas City Missouri 25 Mar 2000
By galford430@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Leaving Friday Harbor" is an excellent example of Scottish Celtic Music today. It really captures the spirit of the group's live performances. The Four current members seem to have a real chemistry with each other which comes out in "Leaving Friday Harbor" and in their live performances. They are probably the best combination since the group was formed over thirty years ago which really says a lot considering the amount of world class musicians that the band has seen come and go. I also would consider them one of the best Celtic Bands in existance. In one of their very memorable live performances, I was impressed to see the members passing they're instruments back and forth to one-another on stage. One of the highlights of the evening was when Mike Katz pulled a penny whistle from Steele's pocket while he was playing. The same laid-back attitude comes through in "Leaving Friday Harbor" which makes it even more spectacular. It was also amusing when they started a set, screwed up and started it over again with a very professional, showman like attitude. They are truly talented people and you won't be disappointed in "Leaving Friday Harbor". If you enjoy this album you will also enjoy the other titles from The Battlefield Band, The Tannahill Weavers, Silly Wizard and The Chieftains.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album of great music by a great band 28 Dec 1999
By Sarah E. Wachter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
_Leaving Friday Harbor_is a wonderful album of traditional music. I must have played it hundreds of times since I bought it at a Batty concert a few months ago. The second album of the new lineup (Alan Reid, Davy Steele, Mike Katz, and John McCusker) is every bit what I had hoped. Alan's keyboard lends fire to the tunes and gives them the distinctive Batty feel, while his songwriting is beautifully wistful for "The Pleasure Will Be Mine"; Davy's songwriting is heartfelt in "The Last Trip Home" and pure fun in "One More Chorus"; John's fiddle is achingly beautiful in "Leaving Friday Harbor" and sparkles throughout the jig and reel sets, while his tunes are a pleasure; and Mike's pipes give the band fire throughout the album, while his original tunes are great fun. This is a wonderful mix of everything the Battys can do- beautiful ballads, as in "The Last Trip Home", "The Pleasure Will Be Mine", and "Logie O'Buchan"; great sing-alongs, as in "The Straw Man" and "One More Chorus" (I dare you to try to keep from joining in); wistful airs- "Leaving Friday Harbor" is a gem, and "Something for Jamie" is equally beautiful; and rollicking dance tunes to get you up and on your feet-the Clan Coco set is a lark, as is the Sister's Reel set (which includes a great tune by Mike entitled "Jesse 'The Body' Ventura's Reel"), while "It's Nice to Be Nice" and "The 24th Guards Brigade at Anzio" start off slow and sweet, then pick up tempo until your stereo is rocking. This album is not to be missed. It is a great introduction to Battlefield Band, a great addition to any traditional music collection, and a great album in its own right. Thanks to the band for all their work (and play, I'm sure). May they continue to bring the joy of their music to the world. Right on, lads.

I first heard the Battlefield Band on a Prairie Home Companion and bought this CD based on the one or two songs I'd heard on the program. I was not at all disappointed. Ever song is lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Fantastic 30 Aug 2001
By John Cross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw the Battlefield Band in Michigan right around the time LFH was released and it was one of the most fantastic shows I ever seen. If you get a chance to see them drop everything you are doing and GO!!!!! you will remember the experience forever.
Not much to say about the album because it is just awesome. To have such great musicians playing on a record with no friction or highlighting of just one person is a real treat.
If you know the BB and are thinking about buying this album then just do it dummy! If you are new to the BB and are considering buying it I can only recommend it totally. If you like the thought of folk music, braveheart, and your typical renassiance/medieval festival rolled into one then this is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album from a great band 10 Jan 2000
By jbv01@jcj.com.ar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The present formation (Steele, Katz, Reid and McCusker) is perhaps the best of this long time band. The members feel comfortable with the others and that can be seen perfectly in the different types of tunes they play. Here you will find that you have four composers, each one with it's own style, and that the four integrate their tunes in a one major structure, that is the whole album. Leaving Friday Harbor is at times calm ("Logie O'Buchan" is a good example) and at others is quite powerful (like "Clan Coco") like they have always done but with more assurance than ever. Defenetly a great cd. Buy it. You will not be dissapointed.
