| Victoria Police's CD,
Masterblasters, is one of my favorite pipe band CDs. There are so many good tracks
on this CD.
Masterblasters starts out with "Me Clootch is Awee!", a
set with three really awesome tunes, all written by Mark Saul. This track is
basically how all the other tracks are - very modern, and filled with back-up instruments
like electric and acoustic guitars and a didgeridoo.
My favorite track on the CD is the very last one, entitled
"Top Deck In Perth", with the composer, Murray Blair, doing a solo. This
has an electric guitar in it, and it sounds really great.
The only down side to the CD, in my opinion, is the more
"trad" sets (the medley, 6/8s) - and this just because they don't have the
back-up instruments like the other tracks, therefore they don't seem to fit.
Vic Police had great pipers in the band - and Masterblasters
shows this. This CD was actually the first pipe band CD I bought for myself, and it
was worth it. Check it out!
