Various - The Great Big Scottish Songbook

"The great Big Scottish Songbook" is five disc musical extravaganza featuring the best Scottsh music from the last six decades that EMI could get their hands on.
With a tracklisting that ranges from Andy Stewart to KT Tunstall covering all basis inbetween there's something on offer for everyone!
However that's the slight problem with the release as due to the diverse nature of the album the running order has the likes of Marillion rubbing shoulders with Jimmy Logan so a bit of programming may be required.
I appreciate EMI could only work with what was available but there are glaring omissions band wise, with the likes of Aztec Camera, Big Country and The Associates not getting a look in.
The collection would work well for family gatherings though, with Great Grannie doing the highland fling to The Corries while Dad high kicks to the Skids, kids looking on in despair!
