I picked this CD to write about because it's the #1 seller on Amazon for Bagpipes. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, people don't take this as what is going on in the Bagpipe & Drum world!!! This CD is ok for having many different Military Marches and that's about it!
Please listen to some of these bands to really experience the BEST of what this awesome music can bring: Shotts and Dykehead Caledonian Pipeband, Victoria Police Pipe Band, Strathclyde Police Pipe Band, 78th Frasiers, Boghall and Bathgate, and SFU.
Amazon actually sells some CD's from these bands. At least I know there is a Shotts CD.
This in not a definitive list, there are many other GREAT bands.
Lismor Recordings also has a series of the Actual Worlds best pipers and you can't get any better. Once you start listening to this stuff, you won't get anymore of these.. compellations.

4.0 out of 5 stars CD is an excellent collection of piping pieces February 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the grand-daddy of piping CDs. I've many piping CDs, and this by far the best of them. The rendition of Amazing Grace is superb, the piobreachd lament is haunting, and the drumming track is so fast that it hurts my wrists to listen! A must buy for any enthusiast of the music of the Highland bagpipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great and true, an excellent sampling February 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is traditional pipe music well presented. To the purist beware the few selections with pipe organ accompaniment which probably sounded wonderful in the cathedral but on cd sounds like two of the loudest musical instruments ever made doing a bit of polite one-ups-manship. The pipes are probably the hardest thing to record well and, for the audiophile looking to get blown away by acoustic realism, your search goes on. The performances are near flawless, and the selections are excellent examples of the pipe music canon.

If you're looking for Pipe music you'll be most dissappointed by the amount of "accompanied" works on this CD

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, Not Great! February 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I love military and police pipe bands, and for the most part, this CD delivers the real thing. One unfortunate choice of music sounded like it was performed by "Alvin and the Highland Chipmunks", and has generated a lot of amusement in my office whenever it plays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highland Pipes and Drums March 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD was wonderful, the music just captured you and each song had it own unique sound. My husband died in a fire and he always said he wanted bag pipe music played at this funeral. We used this CD and many people asked the name of the CD, they felt it made the funeral more meaningful. I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes to listen to bagpipe music.

There is a good selection of different types of music on this CD. Great quality. The sound of Bag pipes will stop me in my tracks, and this CD captures that.
