Willie Ross' five books as well; also Seaforth Collection or Cabar Feidh Collection. You can't go wrong with ANY of those mentioned.

A top number would be Ceol Sean's CD of Logan's Collection. I have one printed book from the collection, and it's got some great stuff in it. At USD17.95 for 500 tunes in early 20th century settings - you can hardly go wrong!

For piobaireachd, David Glen's Ancient Piobaireachd (also on cheap CD from Ceol Sean) represents amazing value in quality.

hey and don't forget my three books. All for under 20 dollars. (Shameless self promotion)
1.The Gathering of the Clans Collection, Vol One.(over 90 tunes) Sorry, that one is sold out again!So please disregard it on the web site)
2.The Cape Breton Collection of Bagpipe Music (over 130 tunes)
3. The Gathering of the Clans Collection, Volume Two (over 140 tunes)
Tunes from these collections have found their way into the repertoires of Pipe bands and soloists alike like SFU ( For my good friend, Blair Murphy; The Burning of the Piper's Hut) Alasdair Gillies ( The Step-dancer;Oran na Teine,Finlay won't go the Eigg,) Roddy MacLeod ( The Bird's Nest and several traditional reels from Cape Breton)
cheers,
Barry

Scots Guards bk 2, Willy Ross books 1-5,Donald MacLeod books 1-6 and the Kilberry Ceol Mor collection will keep you piping fit but don't hesitate to try the new compositions as well.

3 good tune books to buy would be scot guards 1 and 2. they are good because theres so many, not all good though. and watch out for the mistakes in the music which are found quite regularly.

Another good book to have will be the Fred Morrison tune book he is relesing early in 2006

Chris Hamilton,
I took your advice and bought vol 2 and 3 of the Cairngorm collection. The tunes are awesome, thank you very much. I appreciate your advice and look forward to dealing with you in the future.
