This must be the CD `Memories of Scottish Weekend', which I believe has been mentioned before on this list. I picked up a copy a couple of years ago and the only thing I regret about it is that it isn't number 20 in a 20-CD series of similar recordings. The sheer energy of some of these tracks is hardly believable. I would particularly recommend this CD to those who like the flute -- listen to `The Sailor' but take a deep breath before you do, you might not get around to it again for a while. Also you will want to keep a box of tissues handy for the last track. Incidentally, the Strathspey Server does have a CD review section. Unfortunately I don't seem to get around to writing up as many CDs as I should like, but I would like to encourage anybody who wants to share their thoughts and opinions about particular CDs -- new and old -- to contribute. A brief note will do if you don't find it in you to write a five-page review :^), and I will worry about the presentation.
