Like bagpipes, you say? Like bagpipes, indeed. Me mum used to play it and I would dance around the living room in a little kilt and a tall, fuzzy hat. This album is entitled The Crossing and is largely regarded as one of the most accomplished debut albums in rock 'n roll history. It's lush, majestic, full bodied, and powerful. If you're a guitar player this album may hold particular interest for you. Kicking off the album is In A Big Country and what sounds like bagpipes. But they are not its just a guitar. In A Big Country is a song about youthful hope and optimism even in the face of doubt
