4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and historical November 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is just about perfect. In fact, it's only defect is also an advantage. Alan Lomax attempted to cram every corner of Scotland's musical tradition onto a single CD. This is a monumental task, and only partly successful.
On the one hand, pretty much every corner of Scotland's musical tradition is represented. Police bands, boy's choirs, professional folk singers, pub carousers, kid's jump rope games, jacobite battle songs, love songs, port-a-buel, waulking songs, English and Gaelic all find there way onto this CD. It truly is amazing how many songs and styles are represented. What a musical country!
On the other hand, "packed" is what you feel like after listening. The songs move quickly from one to the other, with little or no space. A jaunty accordion tune moves into a soulful Gaelic ballad without a breath, then into a peppy English tune with full choir and then into a drunken military rant. It can be a little too much to take in on one sitting.
Still, it is hard to complain about this musical treasure. For Scottish folk music, there is no equal to this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars a treasure July 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With a plethora of "celtic" music on the market now, it's good to see the real thing still available. This collection by Lomax is a valuable treasure of authentic voices, both Highland and Lowland. A must for anyone who really cares about this music and this culture.

Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is a classic collection of Scottish folk music recorded in 1951 by Alan Lomax in the Lowlands (English) & the Highlands (Gael) speaking parts of Scotland.There are 43 tracks & all are a delight to the ear. I had the original vinyl recording & very laboriously digitized the all 43 tracks, scratches & all. Then at some point, like an idiot I lost the MP3 files. So, you can imagine how delighted I was to find out that I could download the whole shebang into iTunes for $9.99. Bless you Amazon!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Amazon Experience July 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I tried to purchase this and another cd using a gift card. I got an email saying that they would have to be shipped separately. A week later I got an email saying that they were "undeliverable"! Since I didnt think there was going to be a problem when I first placed the order I trashed the gift card code # so I lost the $ that I used for the purchase. So to sum up- No cds no gift card, thanks Amazon.
