"Jimmy Shand Plays Jimmy Shand: A Unique Collection of Original Compositions"

"So much has been written about Jimmy Shand over the past sixty years that it is difficult to find words that have not already been used. However it may not be generally appreciated that, apart from his fame as a button accordionist and a leader in the field of Scottish Dance Music with his legendary ‘Jimmy Shand and His Band’, he (was) also a prolific composer of Scottish Airs and Dance Tunes. For over fifty years, both during his infrequent rest periods at his home in Auchtermuchty, Fife, and as he was travelling the world with his band, he was constantly putting pen to paper with new melodies ~

With more than 200 tunes to his credit is is only right that a special album should be compiled with exclusively Jimmy Shand compositions - and that is what this album achieves, containing 34 such tunes played in the Shand style that has only to be heard once to be recognized."

I’m making a few additions here in the recordings section of the site in preparation for launching into another ‘composer’s week’, a time to add a few of Jimmy Shand’s works to this site, hoping a few others will also contribute… Of late I’d been listening to a number of very rearly Jimmy Shand recordings, including tracks where it’s just him and no one else, no other accompaniment…
