Your favorite Scottish fold-rockers
4 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Capercaillie is Scotland's most successful Celtic folk-rockers.

The Collection is a scant 70 minutes (for the money - $22.48 + tax Amazon OR $26.38 + free shipping/tax Deep Discount DVD, choose your poison).

Five videos open the Collection. Fifteen live tracks from 1992 concerts at the Capital Theatre in Aberdeen and the Nairn Harbourfest follow. The product was originally issued on VHS as Two Nights of Delirium. Of the videos, "Breisleach" opens with a gentle atmosphere, leading into hit singles "Coisch a Ruin" and "Waiting for the Wheel to Turn." "Miracle of Being" is a detour into AOR, while the final video, "Ailein Duinn," is from the film Rob Roy (film clips are shown during the music).

The concert footage is less polished, more vibrant and rousing. The hits repeat, while 13 other tracks enthusiastically mix Clannad-style synthesizers and Celtic mist with Scottish folk updated to include some funky bouzouki-playing. Karen Matheson's vocals are the centerpiece - clear and crystalline.

The band has cancelled many live dates and this makes this collection more anticipated than it might be otherwise.

Scottish location shots are enjoyable.
