2011 sees Greentrax Recordings Ltd celebrating its 25th Anniversary with a double CD collection for the price of one CD.
The double CD is a compilation of 25 tracks, plus two bonus tracks, all of very special relevance and significance to the label and its managing director, Ian Green. The tracks selected by Ian are not necessarily a ‘best of’ collection (although they readily fit that description) but each has featured prominently in some special way in the 25-year journey, including a track from the very first album and one from the last release as celebrations commence. It was no easy task to make this selection from the material available.
Music And Song From Scotland is a fine companion to the 20th Anniversary album Scotland - The Music And The Song and the 15th Anniversary album The Best Of Scottish Music vol 2. These three compilation albums provide an outstanding showcase of the extensive Greentrax catalogue.
Greentrax Recordings celebrates its anniversary along with the Culburnie label in 2011, and will also mark the special occasion with a new 44-page catalogue, a full colour brochure of photographs and stories, and a 25th Anniversary Concert at The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh on Saturday 15th October.
In 25 years Greentrax Recordings - “Scotland’s Favourite Record Company” - has released 468 albums, a remarkable achievement by any standard and one that Ian Green is extremely proud of. This places Greentrax as the largest Scottish traditional music recording company, and one of the leading independents in the UK.
