Pipe Major Iain Mcleod's Selection - Five Times Champions of The World.

This CD represents Pipe Major Iain McLeod's personal selection of tracks from the Band's five albums.

The Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band was one of the most universally recognised and successful pipe bands of all time.

In its 130 year history it won virtually every competition award and accolade available.

Pipe Major Iain McLeod led the Band from 1959 until his retirement from the Police in 1978.

During that period it won the Grade 1 World Pipe Band Championship on five occasions (four times as Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band and once as Lothian & Borders Police Pipe Band).

The Band's film appearances included Casino Royale, Journey To The Centre Of The Earth, Battle Of The Sexes and Let’s Be Happy.

The Band performed at major events in the UK, Europe, Canada, USA, Japan, South Africa and Russia - the latter trip in 1966, at the height of the Cold War period, to promote British trade and industry.

A personal tribute from Iain to everyone connected with the Band in its glory years.
