Description : An old Scottish Celtic Traditional Folk Song. My dad used to play this one when I was a young lad. The melody always stuck in my head and meant something to me, when I heard it again, it brought back some great memories of my younger days. Funny how music can take you away to another time and place. Music is such a powerful trigger. Anyhow I played all the instruments and sang on this one. Not my usual type of musical fare but I still hope you enjoy it.

    Hi Bill

    A wonderful rendition of this classic song. Many years back I used to play at our college folk club and at the end of the evening all the guests would be called up for the final song. It was always Wild Mountain Thyme. Thank you for bringing back such great memories. Lovely playing and perfect instrumentation. What next? Flower of Scotland perhaps?

    Bravo....perfectly done...its a tune I have heard many times down East (Cape Breton) and a fav at the music fests there...I have done more than a few Celtic tunes (being originally from N Ireland) that try to combine the traditional & some modern sounds...but nothing like this Bill...beautiful work on the instrumentation and the vocal & harmonies are totally on the money.....very much enjoyed...I could go for a lot more like this.....Ed

    I've never heard you sing before, it's great to put a voice to the pic. Nice job with this one, I like the tempo and mood to this, makes me feel like donning my kilt and getting involved in a hurling match, lol. As usual, the production was great. I did a traditional Celtic track called Foggy Dew a few weeks back, a collab. It's getting a remix and some instruments added but if you have the time check it out. Something about folk music that just reaches my inner core as a musician. Well done Bill!

    Whoah! The harmonies in this are amazing. The way the musical elements interplay with the vocals melodic line is fantastic. This is a true representation of folk music and a really good lesson on how to use modern elements and yet create something that takes you so far back in time.

    Excellent choice of instrumentation and a great delivery. I must agree with Dave it can easily be played as part of a large concert.

    All the best!

    Man I'm 99% Scotts..I've always wanted to make Celtic music but wouldn't know where to start for the life of me..after listening for about 4 bars I can feel the tug of the genetic code stirring (thank God there were no lead bagpipes..they always make me feel like marching off to war! lol).....seriously though Bill this is absolutely beautiful,and your vocals fall into that true 'folk' area..a place where the impact isn't measure in chromatic gymnastics but in sincerity and timing....it takes me to a place I've never been but would love to visit...fantastic arrangement,with enough polish to play a large concert hall yet still blow the froth off a pub full of Guinness! cheers Dave :)

    Heya Dave. You must have been bewildered at the content. Not my usual fare in the least. Actually I didn't expect to have any reviews at all, because of that. It was just something I wanted to do for me in memory of my dad, and as well, for Marie because we talked about the song before and she encouraged me to work on it. I'm glad followed through, the procrastinator I am ! Thanks Dave (The Scot Down Under!)

    Bill, you sweet man you.. I love to hear you sing, I wish I could play and instrument and sing. This sounds very ethic sort of transports you, I was going to go to Ireland this summer,didn't work out but I was so look forward to going to that part of the world. I just imagine beautiful lush hills and lots of dancing and happiness, simple and uncomplicated.
    Great job.

Description : So much of the music I like has it's roots emanating from Africa, this track may be so far removed from their traditional style of music to be foreign but I'd like to think I'm connecting to those roots in some way.

Description : I'm from Denmark/Copenhagen, and I traveled all the way to Sweden/Helsingborg just to experience the ultimate Swedish nightlife.

I have been to the hottest VIP clubs in Copenhagen and Milano. Nothing come even close to the Swedish nightlife.

I went to a bar called "Benzin Bar" and they put the bardisk on fire(with Benzin) and danced on the tables. The bartender toke some of his cloths off and sprayed champaign around and the music-mix was insane!

If you want the ultimate party experience, then Sweden is it!

I just got emailed the music director of a big Swedish radiostation. The music director agrees with me that Benzin bar was amazing! He puts this track on the music rotation!

I freaking love Sweden!

Description : This track is an experimental version of the popular Hindu mantra Om Namah Shivaye, wonderfully sung by Ankit Sharda. The female background vocalist doesn't want her name mentioned in the credits.

The song was created on Caustic Beta Version 3.8, and mastered on Mastering Beta Version 5; both Android apps from Single Cell Software. The new Sawsynth synthesizer in Caustic was used in the background & synth bass (paired with another bass).
