Greentrax is proud to have been associated with Eric Bogle since 1989. In those 27 years Greentrax has released all of Eric's live and studio albums, including his collaborations with long-time buddy and touring partner John Munro, plus various compilations and the 5CD box set Singing The Spirit Home.
Voices is another amazing collection of songs - eight from Eric himself, probably one of the greatest songwriters of the past several decades. There are two songs from John Munro, one from Peter Titchener and a song sent to Eric by Simon Wilkins. The album is eagerly awaited by the legions of Bogle fans in the UK, Europe and beyond, and will not disappoint.
We should be able to despatch this pre-order title to you in advance of the official release date of 5th September.
The Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band was one of the most universally recognised and successful pipe bands of all time. In its 130-year history it won virtually every competition award and accolade available.
This album represents Pipe Major Iain McLeod's personal selection of tracks from the Band's five albums under his leadership. It illustrates that the quality of the Band's performances has stood the test of time over more than half a century, despite considerable advances in recording equipment and instrument technology.
Now in stock for immediate despatch.
