This was in Hamish Moore’s days of experimenting with an exciting fusion of Scottish smallpipes and Border pipes, with jazz musician Dick Lee on saxophone and other wind instruments. The music was breathtaking.

The duo was joined in the studio by the late Michael Marra, who produced and played keyboards and sang, plus session musicians Jim Sutherland (percussion), Graham Robb (bass), Rick Bamford (percussion) and more.

If you like something different by talented musicians then this is for you.

“A good producer always heats the pot first, then into the jungle with Hamish and Dick, Specky Knobbage and a thousand switches, hunders of k-bytes and old heiroglyphics, battling monsters and mounted polis to rescue the pipes from the warlords and hurl the blues at the sun and moon. These sessions were precious. Sometimes I left my shoes at the door. The players all excelled in skill and spirit and the music was an adventure. All this is as it should be, and long may these men hurl.”
(Michael Marra, producer)
