4.0 out of 5 stars Beginning, from end to end, 12 May 2007
This is one of the best compilations of modern Scottish folk music I've come across. It is a survey from about 1979 to 2004, each of the three discs containing eleven tracks, and covering a different period. The first is "Classic Roots" with bands like Silly Wizard proclaiming The Queen of Argyll, and The Easy Club giving a new twist to Dirty Old Town. The second disc, "New Awakenings", introduces Capercaillie (with the gorgeous voice of Karen Matheson), side-by-side with the dazzling instrumentals of Blazin' Fiddles and the quieter harp backing of The Poozies, representing the eighties and nineties. The third disc, is "No Boundaries", where we pick up the cross-over sounds of bands such as Shooglenifty and Salsa Celtica. All in all, this is as fine a selection as you'll get, and what a bargain! Even if you're not a "Beginner", this set is worth getting: it might send you in a new (to you) direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable value, 30 Nov. 2013

This review is from: Beginners Guide To Scotland (Audio CD)
Lots of budget compliations are full of fillers you will listen to once and never listen to again. The good news is that this compilation bucks the trend in the most amazing and surprising ways. Even the naff music hall tracks interspersed add a charm to the overall listen although you would probably not seek these tracks individually. However, its the quality of the material particularly from the current crop of scottish talent that make this worth every penny and then some. If you like traditional music, buy this, i promise you won't be disappointed.
