The first album released on CD from the Aberdeen based orchestra, recorded at BBC Beechgrove Studios in Aberdeen.

A fine selection of tunes, including jigs, march, strathspey, reels and slow airs.

A highlight is the rendition of the slow air "James Logan Esq" composed by Andrew Fitchett.

This tune "James Logan Esq" was commissioned on the death of the society's vice president. James Logan OBE did much for the Arts Of Scotland and he was proud of his association with the Aberdeen Strathspey and Reel Society.

The main aim of the society is to preserve traditional Scottish music.

You can sense the sheer enjoyment of music making from the players, skilfully conducted by Graham Reid.

"Something gets to the heart of fiddlers when they are presented with a set of jigs to play en masse and there's no doubt the members of the Aberdeen Strathspey and Reel Society have excelled themselves on that score....It's a cracker!" (Robbie Shepherd).
