Top critical review
Several almost indistiguishable recollections.
on 16 March 2015
I bought this after hearing about it on Pipeline where it sounded like a great idea. The cncept of experienced musicians telling of their learning experiences and anecdotes. Unfortunatley the execution did not reflect this concept. In reality the nemes at the head of each article could have been moved arouind without much loss of sense. I suspect the author probably put his journalistic style on top of what was recounted to him resulting in many chapters reading almost identical. The pipers were the most learned and respected in the trade but I did not feel this book gave them the porer credit or repsect they were due.
