Folk, blues, pop, rock, great tunes, memorable hooks and top-notch playing and singing endure as one of our most underrated bands of the 70's get the 'Very Best of' treatment. The only thing holding them back from the 'Premiership of Pop' were some occasionally dodgy lyrics (usually lonely boys looking for their perfect'lady', but set to melodies most writers would kill for), sometime weedy production and total lack of A&R savvy by Island and CBS. Sony continue this last trait by shoddily packaging this collection giving only minimal track details and just a succinct and wry summary of their careers by Iain and Gavin where a bit of a booklet would have been nice!
Then there's the track selection - the perennial 'Best of' debate. Most included here are worthy of their place, although the lack of the opening line from 'I Hear Thunder' from their first album with Quiver: 'The forecast for today is cloudy wind and sleet, possible snow on high ground especially in the Midlands and the North'is particularly missed (along with arguably 9 other tracks which could have made it up to a double)and the cod-reggae 'Something's Burning' would have been best forgotten.
So what do you get for your ' bargain price'? 20 tracks and a generous running time for a start. Their early years are well represented by strong songs such as 'The Pie', their first hit 'You Got Me Anyway' and the sea-shanty/gospel of 'Lifeboat' - the latter written by Gavin who was less prolific than Iain, perhaps more hit and miss, but wrote some of their most interesting songs. Then there's the original version of Iain's phenomenal 'Sailing', given room to breathe and sounding stately and modest with its sparse backing and drone accompaniement.

What a great album..! I had 'Reach for the Sky' on vinyl years ago. This contains several tracks from that album. Among them the outstanding 'Moonlight Lady' and 'When the Train Comes' My fave has to be 'Easy Come. Easy Go'. The Brothers are extremely talented songwriters, and Tim Renwick's guitar is fantastic. This is a must have album for anyone interested in intelligently crafted 70's pop songs.

'Gavin (born in 1951 in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, and Iain (born in 1948 in Ellon, Aberdeenshire) first set out in 1968 as
'A New Generation' in the early 70's performing as a Folk/Rock duo until 1973 when they linked up with Rock-Band 'Quiver'
Their song 'You Got Me Anyway' was a lower order hit in the U.S in 1973, they broke into the U.K Chart in 1976 with their
song - 'In The Arms Of Mary' (Chart '5' also a minor hit in the U.S) the same year reaching number '35' with 'Secrets' in the
U.K - all three songs were written by 'Iain Sutherland'
The Sutherland Brothers without Quiver did go on to have a minor Hit with 'Easy Come, Easy Go' (a favourite of mine)
Famously 'Gavin Sutherland' wrote the song 'Sailing' which they recorded (on-board) but as we all know was in fact a massive
hit for another 'Scot' - Rod Stewart
This album a great example of their best known recordings.

As an SBQ fan in the 70s, this was cd is a real treasure. Some familiar tracks, some not heard before. There were no egos at play in this band. Buy it and enjoy.
1. The Pie - Classic. Simple, beguiling and almost hypnotic. A dream song.
2. I Was In Chains - I love Iain's voice - here it's like dark, wild and desolate.
3. Real Love - Moody and soulful. Love it. Tim's dreamy guitarwork - exquisite.
4. Sailing - Almost dirge-like in its starkness - original version, definitive and raw.
5. You Got Me Anyway - Classic rock. No cover versions required.
6. Lifeboat - You fly with the 'swallow in the bright blue sky'. Gavin has an interesting voice.
7. Dreamkid - Sexy man. Another of Iain's commanding, earthy vocal performances.
8. Champion the Underdog - this one is okay.
9. Beat of the Street - I love this! Sassy, sexy and fun!
10. Laid Back in Anger - captures the mood.
11. When The Train Comes - there's an almost childlike simpliciy about this one - images of a sun-drenched early morning, at the station with a one-way ticket... But its classy.
12. Arms of Mary - I like this, and yes, maybe a tad commercial, but it did chart and Iain's wistful vocals make it all worthwhile. Lovely.
13. Dr Dancer - I like this.
14. Love on the moon - Natty tune and production - it rocks. Again, with the added extra of Tim's dreamy guitarwork.
15. Moonlight Lady - Exxxquisite vocals from Iain. (Shayne from X-factor could do this justice.)
16. Slipstream - Another excellent classic, and yes, Iain does that wistful thing with his voice again.
17. Secrets - Catchy and neat. Another good 'un!
18. Something's Burning - I like this - dark and a bit desperate.
19. When The Night Comes Down - Sometimes I wonder where Iain got his inspiration from - who on earth would ever give this man the runaround!
20. Easy Come Easy Go - Personally, I found this a tad gloomy, but it is the last track after all.
