4.0 out of 5 stars Decent start to the collection, possibly 27 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you want to get interested in Scottish music, but do not know where to start, then this may well be ideal for you. The big names, such as Texas, Simple Minds and Del Amitri are there as well as classic artists: most of the Eighties crowd, when Scottish music burst into market dominance and some of the cult heroes from the Seventies. All genres are covered and the amount of artists on board require this release to be a double CD. To be honest, a triple CD would also be good and would cover all bases.
While it is a good start to the collection, it is a bit of a let down. All of the following - Travis, Belle & Sebastian, Wet Wet Wet, Love and Money, The Sweet, The Waterboys, Teenage Fanclub, Goodbye Mr MacKenzie, Shirley Manson, Orange Juice, Bay City Rollers, Jack Bruce, Maggie Bell, Bronski Beat, Annie Lennox, The Big Dish, - have been overlooked. To be honest, the Sweet have been on countless glam rock compilations as have the Rollers but it is still music with strong associations with Scotland. The argument of only "one Scottish band member so no admittance" is also not really applicable as "Kayleigh" by Marillion makes an appearence (personally, something from Fish's first solo effort would have been better). The mid-90s release "Pride: The Very Best of Scotland" included some of the omitted and particularly bands with one Scottish band member: Ultravox's masterpiece of "Vienna" makes it onto "Pride" while the weaker "If I Was" is the sole representation of Midge Ure's work on the new collection (what about Slik???). Why the Proclaimers get two songs on this is beyond me.
To the already established listeners of Scottish Pop, this will be quite a nice addition to your collection, particularly those who like the early years:.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Album 6 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is, all in all, an excellent compilation of songs. Thankfully, Rod Stewart wasn't included - he has been on other Scottish albums, yet he is NOT Scottish.
Two songs from the Proclaimers was a mistake, IMHO. Annie Lennox/Eurythmics would have been a better choice instead of the second Proclaimers track. Or even Sheena Easton.
