This is an excellent tribute CD from Eddi Reader to Scotland’s Bard, Robert Burns.

Eddi Reader has never hidden her love for Burns and it shows on this fantastic release, where she brings her own unique arrangements to his poems.

Backed by a who’s who of international artists such as John McCusker, Boo Hewerdine, Phil Cunningham, Roy Dodds and Christine Hanson the album was recorded in a mere three days and includes one track not written by Burns.

That track is ‘Wild Mountainside’, written by Mr John Douglas – but you knew that didn’t you. It’s a cracking version and includes the amazing Kate Rusby on harmony vocals.

A deluxe version of this CD with 7 additional songs was subsequently released not long ago – seek it out, ‘n a’ that.
