Sometimes you go out. Sometimes you go out for the night...
Released in 2004, this is the second album from this line-up of Battlefield Band, featuring the talents of Mike Katz (pipes), Alan Reid (keyboards and vocals), Alasdair White (fiddle, whistles, who was the 'new kid' but seems to have taken to life on the road like a duck to water...), and the second coming of Pat Kilbride (guitar and vocals) who was a member of Battlefield Band in the '70s and played on their album 'At The Front'.
"it's a recording to both celebrate and cherish, mixing traditional instrumentation and celtic melodies with a pin-sharp contemporary feel"
HMV CHOICE March/April 2004
Here's a neat idea. Write some tunes and add some penned by others, sing several pretty good songs of your own with a mix of traditional material and play everything well. It's now 30 years since the Batties spearheaded the Scottish music revival... ...the passage of time has done nothing to dim the Battlefield sparkle
