Alan Reid - The Sunlit Eye

Select from currently available formats:

Released in 1997, this is the long awaited first solo album from Alan Reid, the gifted Scottish singer and songwriter best known for his work with Battlefield Band. For over four decades Alan was an ever-present member of the great Scottish group, recording many albums and touring around the world. 

Over the years Alan honed his skill as a songwriter, his songs becoming a regular feature of the band's repertoire. Often noted for their storytelling element and strong melody, his work covers a wide sweep from historical ballads to love songs and political song.

This album was made gradually when touring, recording & family commitments have allowed. It features Alan's original songs and tunes and two of his favourite Burns' songs.


Friends who appear on this album include: Eilidh MacKenzie, Christine Primrose, Gillian MacDonald, Wendy Weatherby, Mike Katz, Arthur Cormack, Eric Rigler, Duncan MacGillivray, Iain MacDonald, James MacKintosh, Brian Miller, Simon Thoumire, John McCusker & Finlay MacDonald
