I'm not an expert on Scottish Country Music but I think this is a very good example of Jimmy Shand and his Band and Scottish Country Dance. If you are debating which CD to buy for his music then to my ear this is the one to buy. A marvellous variety of dances and tempos makes this one of the best Jimmy Shand CDs I have heard. It makes you wonder about the amazing variety of country dance tempos and styles that exist. I love the Waltzs and the "Northern Lights Melody" makes the hair stand up on my neck! The recording quality (even on my PC speakers) is excellent and at this price it's an absolute bargain! Definitely go for this one for a good introduction to Countty dance music.

Jimmy Shand has been a much loved favourite of mine since I was a little boy back in the early fifties, when my Mother used to call me in from play when he was on the radio.
NO ONE DOES SCOTTISH DANCE MUSIC BETTER!!!!

I bought this for a family party with a varied age range and as an alternative to the usual pop music. It was welcomed by all, those who remember black and white tv and New Year's Eve on BBC; the children who were introduced to it and loved it and it even got the grumpy teenagers tapping their feet. If you are feeling glum, listen to Jimmy. It is timeless.

The title says it all. Jimmy Shand at his best. Every tune gets 10/10 from me.
If I could give more than 5 stars to this great CD, I would.
The Bluebell Polka and "De'il amang the tailors" are my favourites, but there is not a bad tune on the whole CD.
The last two tracks "Sing in the New Year" parts I and II remind me of Hogmanay in Dundee.

I have to say this is marvellous.

Jimmy Shand had a recording career spanning over 60 years, recorded more tracks than the Beatles, as a group, plus their solo stuff, plus the Stones combined!

Absolutely guaranteed to cheer you up, every time. Sheer professional and unequalled talent, thank gooness Jimmy Shand has such a long and wonderful legacy, and this CD is a pretty good starting point.

Go on, cheer yourself up-I guarantee it will.
