The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

Just downloaded "Highland Cathederal" CD by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards from iTunes and I have gotta say it is awesome. I don't know how old the album is but it's fantastic. Yeah yeah I know... nerd!!! :thumleft:

Thank you, was great fun making it. I think we recorded it in 98 or 99.
If you liked highland cathedral then you will love parallel tracks. This was recorded after Highland Cathedral and features a guest performance by Mark Knopfler from Dire straits.

Not sure if it is on Itunes but you can buy it on the website www.scotsdg.co.uk

LOL. Yes, but now and then I love to sit back and listen to a good cd of Pipes and Drums. 8) I used to love being able to go to the Pipes and Drums Hut and listen live... but alas

Also, I have added to the album with a rendition of "O Flower of Scotland" by Moira Kerr and one by Tommy Scott. Their styles are similar but unique if you know what I mean.

Do you mean Pipe bands or solo pipers.

Obviously the big grade 1 bands such as Shotts and Dykehead, Field marshall montgomery etc are superior pipe bands to the SCOTSDG.

But For all round ability the SCOTSDG can not be beaten. They could be doing street parades, beating retreats, large tattoos or live concerts with backing bands. Very few Bands could provide such a range of performances.
I would also say that SCOTSDG sell many more CD's than any other band.

Mate, I'll take your word. From what I've heard you are Second to None. Alls I meant was P&Ds in the way of Military units. I have seen the massed P&Ds and also at the Tatoo. I was just looking into the rivalry is all.

If you just mean regimental P's & D's then SCOTSDG by far.
I grew up and only served with a unit with the Pipes and Drums. So I spose... yes to your last. 8) If that makes me sad... then I can live with that.
