20 tracks including: The Finger Lock * Donald of Laggan * Lament For The Laird of Annapool * The Desperate Battle * The Old Woman’s Lullaby (canntaireachd) * The Old Woman’s Lullaby (pipes) * Lament For Donald Dougal MacKay * Cill Chriosd * MacLeod of Raasay’s Salute * The Battle of Vaternish * Duntroon’s Salute * Lament For Patrick Og MacCrimmon * Too Long In This Condition.

Born of a Raasay family living in Tobermory, Isle Of Mull, William MacLean was a pupil of Malcolm MacPherson (Calum Piobaire) of Badenoch, with whom he made a special study of piobaireachd.

He went on to win many piping prizes, including the Argyllshire Star at Oban (1898), the Inverness Champion’s Gold Medal of The Highland Society of London (1901), the Highland Society of London Champion’s Gold Medal for Piobaireachd at Oban (1912) and the Inverness Ex-Champion’s Class (1913). He also won prizes for March, Strathspey and Reel.

He became Pipe Major of The 5th Cameron (Lochiel) Highlanders during World War 1 and was regarded by some as one of the best piobaireachd players of the first half of the 20th Century.

The recordings on this album were made in the early 1950s and include examples of complete piobaireachd tracks, plus sections of piobaireachd and one track of canntaireachd. The album will be sought after by many pipers and in particular those with a particular interest in piobaireachd.

This double CD re-release was originally available on music cassette only.
