Performer Notes
  • Arranger: The Tannahill Weavers.
  • Scottish folk music icons the Tannahill Weavers begin their first anthology -- like one of their legendary live shows -- with the rousing "Geese in the Bog/The Jig of Slurs," and what follows are some of the most electrifying recordings of traditional music ever put to tape. Best of 1979-1989 compiles 12 stellar tracks culled from the group's first seven records and showcase its muscular piping and gorgeous balladry. Audience favorites, such as "Johnnie Cope/Atholl Highlanders," "The Gypsy Laddie," and their peerless version of Robert Burns' "Auld Lang Syne", reside among the lesser known -- but equally impressive -- "Tranent Muir" and "Farewell to Flunary/Heather Island." This is a great place to start for the novice, as some of these records are either out of print or require a great deal of hunting. Singer/guitarist Roy Gullane's clever liner notes and the addition of a "Scots-glossary" help make this already essential compilation even more valuable. ~ James Christopher Monger
