Review

Review Text Founded in the late 1970s, Temple Records is a small Scottish label that has focused exclusively on Scottish artists. Temple never gave us a major Scottish act like Sheena Easton, the Average White Band or the Bay City Rollers; the idea was to was remain independent and record the type of artists that major labels weren't beating down the doors to sign. Released in October 1992, this collection illustrates Temple's diversity and contains traditional Scottish/Celtic music (both with and without bagpipes) as well as more contemporary sounds. Some of the selections are quite traditional in their outlook, including Pat Kilbride's arrangement of "The Galbally Farmer," Arthur Cormack's version of "Gradh Geal Mo Chrindh" and Gaelic singer Eilidh Mackenzie's "Achadh Bhuana." But the sampler also finds Scottish artists embracing everything from the blues (Mike Wheelan's "Thinking About You Baby") and Bob Dylan-ish folk-rock (Peter Nardini's "Glasgow Cathedral") to Louisiana-style Cajun music (Deaf Heights Cajun Aces' "Moi Et Mon Cousin"). Ranging from the decent to the superb, this CD can serve as an enjoyable introduction to the Temple. ~ Alex Henderson
