Battlefield Band - Rain, Hail or Shine
Battlefield Band went from strength to strength as they introduced two new recruits on this album. Alan Reid and John McCusker were joined by Davy Steele, widely regarded as one of the finest contemporary Scottish folk singers and songwriters, and Mike Katz, the superbly gifted bagpiper and multi-instrumentalist.
Released in 1998, the resulting album sounds powerful, graceful, yet effortless, as the collective ability, songwriting and compositional strengths of this multi-talented line-up shone through.
"...altogether a hugely impressive package"
"An excellent album which I'm sure will stand the test of time"
