On the tracks:

Coupled with booming drums, uilleann pipes, and rock guitar, Ross calls the role of Highlander clans in his rousing Scottish anthem, "Raise the Clans!"

The CD collection also contains "Bell Rock Light," the No. 1 song on Coverunner Radio in Redondo Beach, Calif., during two consecutive rating periods (Aug/Sept 2003). Ross wrote "Bell Rock Light" while researching and writing his book, The Lure of Lighthouses.

Ross, an admirer of the strength, durability, and perseverance of women, reflects on those qualities in several "power songs" about women. One of the most popular, "White Rose," tells the true tale of Flora McDonald, the legendary Scottish heroine instrumental in the rescue of the famed Bonnie Prince Charlie, the rightful heir to the throne of Scotland. The sentimental Celtic harp sound anchors the tune's orchestration.

"The Seven Men of Glenmoriston" salutes the ragged band of rebel loyalists protecting the Prince Charles in the aftermath of the disastrous defeat by the British at Culloden Moor, dooming the Prince's bid to regain the Scottish crown. Uilleann pipes and rock guitar give a grand-finale finish to the fundamentally acoustic piece.

Ross, born to famous fine-arts painter and illustrator Alexander Ross, a native Scot born in Dunfermline, keenly feels the depths of his Celtic roots. "My Father's Eye" replicates that special feeling of connectedness with clan and kin.

The words I use to describe this CD are warm, inviting, powerful and wonderfully
This CD is one of my all-time favorites as it inspires me in ways I didn't know possible. Every note is personal and sincere. The melodies move me to deep emotions including excitement, warmth and happiness. Each song on this CD is well-thought out and sung with such purity and passion. The song "A White Rose" is probably the most meaningful and beautiful music ever composed. I highly recommend this CD to any music lover.

Our Heritage is Alive & Well in America
This CD is well named, "Scottish Infuence" In it I can hear the voices of my Highland Home, the echoes of 1,000 years of democracy, and the pride of those who went before us, and the voices of those "O'Wer The Water" We hear hundreds of artists every year. It is with great pride we add Mr. Alan Ross to our play list, and demand he get to work on another CD.

Wow, my Reivers blood was stirred!
This collection of songs will make a Scot out of anyone. My Border ancestry has always been cause for the blood running proud but "Call up the Clans" sent shivers through me. Any Scots will swell with pride when listening to the "White Rose" and "Seven Men of Glenmoriston". The songs bring such vivid mental pictures of the escape. A lot of people think the bridge over the Firth of Forth is Scotland's great engineering feat but those wise ones know that the "Rock" is truly the greatest engineering feat in Scotland. Alan does it justice.

Alan's music is as relaxing as butter on a warm plate
I've yearned to take a trip to Scotland and discover my roots and the music of my ancestors. Thanks to Alan Ross' soothing lilt and lyrics, I was able to get a delectible taste, for now, from the confines of my comfortable couch.
