Robert Burns Songs

Eddi Reader Sings the Songs of Robert Burns is one of the finest albums to come out of Scotland this year. With opening track, Jamie Come Try Me , we are treated once again to Eddi's beautiful voice backed by some lovely strings. You sense real passion here. My Love Is Like A Red Rose is more poetic in its lyrical content, but the strings again shine through. Willie Stewart / Molly Rankin is a happy foray into a knees-up vibe.Then onto Ae Fond Kiss which, is beautiful. Ye Jacobites and Wild Mountainside are worthy of special note but its the collection as a whole that is more than the sum of its parts. A lovely album that joins the very good company of Eddi Reader's other work.

The Songs of Robert BurnsThe Songs of Robert Burns This is a combination made in heaven! Robert Burns' lyrical songs sung by one of the finest voices in the folk business: ex-Silly Wizard's Andy M. Stewart, sensitively accompanied by, among others, Manus Lunny. It is difficult to single out individual songs, but the pastoral "Ca' the Yowes to the Knowes" and the radical manifesto "Is there for honest poverty (For A' That)" are personal favourites of mine. This collection will have you searching for AMS's other recordings, and Robert Burns' other songs and poems!

The Poems and Songs of Burns A selection of songs and lyrical poems by Robert Burns. Longer poems such as "Tam O'Shanter" and "The Cotter's Saturday Night" are also included. Lovers of Burn's poetry should find this selection enjoyable. It also provides an introduction for those unfamiliar with his work.
