Product Description

Product Description

2nd album from singer/songwriter/piper Iain Morrison from the Outer Hebrides. This atmospheric 'nu-folk' album is awash with the bleak beauty of the region and reveals the depth of Morrison's songwriting skills. Justly gaining a cult following in folk circles. "He specialises in spartan elegies, beautifully sung like Tom McRae's finest." - (Planet Sound). "A remarkable slice of rural folk." - (Rock 'n' Reel).

I have been a fan of Iain's music for quite a few years now and I always look forward to his new music. This cd is a great representation of his talents: singing, song-writing and the pipes. In particular I enjoy the track "Skimming Stones". The music is beautiful and the lyrics weave seamlessly into the background, an Iain Morrison specialty as is evident in the tune "Away with the Faeries" on his previous cd.
The addition of Lee Patterson, well known to many Edinburgh gig-goers, on the track Sinking Boats is just superb.

To anyone dithering, give it a try and be amazed and if you are IN Scotland, check him out on the live circuit. He is a friendly and open artist with real talent, something very rare nowadays!

I bought this on a whim and i can't stop listening to it, the music for "skimmming stones" is utterly amazing. It gets right into your head and won't come out. The lyrics and the music place images of hope, desperation, beauty, wilderness, traquility and human kindness into your mind. The "Ghost of Eriskay Causeway" is haunting and a real foot tapper as well. Great album, truely great album.- so far 49 listens on my i tunes and still not tired of it.

After buying this and listening to it have even tracked down the "Crash My Model Car" albums which are also great and his other solo album. How come this guy isn't more famous? Buy this you will love it

I ordered this CD -the '1' they have in stock over 3 months ago and it still hasn't arrived. They are 'waiting on it coming in' -so its not 'in stock' at Amazon S.A.R.L as they claimed!!! Which is a damn shame because Iain Morrison is a fantastic artist and his music is amazing. This album is astounding as I have it on digital download and wanted to get a 'hard copy'. I'm giving up on Amazon SARL and their frequently god awful delivery times and astronomically bad customer service and getting it directly from Iains website. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER
