I have just found out about this group and love their music. I don't have any of their CDs yet... was wondering where I should start.

I'd recommend To the Moon, I've also got Beautiful Wasteland in my collection. Indeed a wonderful group.

Should have know the first group you'd discover was the same one as did I. biggrin.gif

To the Moon definately. Of course they may all be as good, this is the only one I have, but it contains the song I love the very, very best. The Price of Fire.

Enjoy. Karen Mathieson truly has a gifted voice.

Ooh! Elspeth! We seem to have the same taste! Thanks for the help. I will definitely get To the Moon then. I have heard Karen Mathieson's voice and she is phenomenal! Many thanks again!

I've got all their CDs - and I have seen them live on at least 10 occasions over the years (probably more, I don't keep count!)

Catriona -- where are the band from?

I noticed they have a new CD out called "Choice Language." It got really good reviews by Amazon buyers. I think I may get that one too. Oh! My Christmas list is ever growing! rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif

They have been together for so long, I can't remember the exact details of their beginnings! Although I seem to think most of them were at school together in Oban... (don't quote me, I haven't got the CD boxes beside me in my study!)

Here's a website which claims to have their bibliography - haven't checked if ALL their stuff is on the site...

Ooh Catriona! Thank you. I checked out their site you gave me and it looks as though they did start in Oban, West Scotland. Recorded their first CD in 1984, so they have been together a long time.

Thank you for giving me the definition of Capercaillie. It is always nice to know things like that. I noticed after I started this thread that I had misspelled their name by leaving the i off the end of the name! Duh! I was so mad at myself but you all got who I was talking about anyway.

I am getting an Amazon gift certificate for Christmas, so you know what I will be shopping for. What are your favorite songs?

I second Beautiful Wasteland and also strongly recommend Delirium. All of my favourite songs by them are on Delirium, Breisleach in particular is an amazing song!

Well I went to Amazon.com and tried to buy the CDs you all recommended, but to my dismay they were sold out! sad.gif But I was able to buy their latest CD called "Choice Language" and that got good reviews too. I will also get an Amazon gift certificate for Christmas and hopefully by then, I can buy some of the other CDs. I just really love their music and Karen's voice! Oh my! thumbs_up.gif

I love this place!
