15 tracks of the best in Scottish Dance Music including reels, marches, jigs, twostep, waltzes and old time favourites such as "When You're Smiling" and "Danny Boy".
Recorded for the first time ever on a commercial release is FANTASMAGORICAL!, the band's magical arrangement of the classic songs from the hit musical from stage and screen CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG.
Once again Iain Cathcart has brought his talented band members to the studio to record a range of Scottish dance music sets which make this CD a must for any enthusiast
The lively, accurate and swingy playing makes it easy to listen to over and over again. Many bands seem to have a sameness these days but Iain’s melodic blend coupled with his interpretation of the tunes ensures his band has an unmistakable sound.
I especially like his Killberry Twostep and the pipe-music set, Captain Carswell’s Castle, which harks back to the 1960s sound of Alasdair Downie.
The Band members were obviously very relaxed and comfortable in each others musical company, so the ingredients for a recording session which will stand the test of time were all in place.
Well done and congratulations to Iain and his band for bringing us the next instalment of this exciting band's musical journey.
