Regiment pipe band launch new album
- 13 November 2007
The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards yesterday launched their new album at Edinburgh Castle, some 35 years after the regiment enjoyed six weeks at number one with a recording of Amazing Grace.
The soldiers announced a £1 million recording deal with Universal Music last month, and have since received interest from Glastonbury and T in the Park.
The album, Spirit of the Glen, includes covers of songs by Paul McCartney and Rod Stewart, as well as Scottish ballads.
Pipe Major Derek Potter said: ‘We’re overwhelmed by the amount of interest in our music, and we’re just happy to be able to get it heard by a wider audience.
‘We hope to have the nation converted to bagpiping once we’ve released this record.’
