This is my first Blair Douglas cd so I am reviewing with "fresh ears". Each song has a short written background which is very informative and important to remember when listening to the tracks. As there are different guest vocalists each song is something different. Also, the songs lyrics are in Gaelic and english, also something I have not come across before.
The album is a mixture of happy,sad, dramatic,scottish, world music, each song is a delight in its own way. I had to review and recommend this album as it is so refreshing and cannot be simply classed as scottish folk. One minute you will tapping your feet ,the next will have you sitting in quiet contemplation. Finally if you never thought of the accordion as "funky", listen to track 10 and be suprised!
If you buy this album I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
