Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Nothing stands still for Battlefield Band - over 30 years on the road and still producing the goods. The music on this album is their unique, high quality mix of self penned and traditional music and song reflecting the bands Scottish background. Released in 2001, 11 tracks plus 4 extra value added tracks taken from other recent solo and Battlefield albums. Few acts command as much respect as The Battlefield Band and this outing confirms that their reputation for good, honest musicianship remains intact. Whether they approach songs or tunes, self-penned or traditional, the delivery is always crisp and tight. And yet they maintain at all times an ability to surprise, to amuse and to give food for thought. The album is dedicated to the memory of former member and stalwart of the Scottish traditional/folk scene, Davy Steele, who passed away prior to this title's release. Many outfits would have found it damn near impossible to have recovered from a loss of such a magnitude. However Battlefield Band - like all great institutions - takes change and tragedy in its stride - emerging with its dignity intact and stronger than before.

Even though the Battlefield Band has gone through numerous personnel changes since it formed in 1969, the constant infusion of new talent has helped maintain the group's reputation as one of the most innovative in Scottish folk music. The incarnation of the band on Happy Daze includes keyboardist Alan Reid, the only remaining founding member; John McCusker, who is one of the finest young fiddlers in the Celtic world; Mike Katz, a piper who is equally skilled on the Highland bagpipes and the more intimate smallpipes; and singer-songwriter Karine Polwart, who is the first woman to be a full-time member since Jenny Clark left in 1978. The addition of Polwart expands the band's musical range, but more importantly on tracks such as the haunting murder ballad "The Banks of Red Roses" and the sly tale of a lost amorous opportunity "Shepherd Lad," she adds a new emotional depth as well. The instrumental selections are as strong as ever, and the interplay of McCusker's fiddle and Katz's pipes and whistles sets a standard that is rarely reached in contemporary Celtic music. Happy Daze ranks among the best recordings from the Battlefield Band, which makes it one of the finest examples of modern Scottish folk music. --Michael Simmons
