"Broadside to Broadband" by Dr. Wm Donaldson is the first collection of pipe tunes initially published in digital form. The collection, first released on November 30, 2006, and was presented on CD by Ceol Sean CD's.
Dr. Donaldson is a well-known authority within the piping community and is the author of The Highland Pipe and Scottish Society 1750-1950 and provides analysis and commentary for the Set Tunes Series hosted by the Pipes|Drums website.
This is a spectacular collection in many ways. It includes 50 original tunes composed by Dr. Donaldson, along with his arrangements for 156 traditional tunes. Throughout the collection, there are photos, line drawings, engravings, and a host of other images associated with the settings that bring the music to life. In addition, the introductory material includes a detailed background on the collection, as well as an interesting collection of recordings called "Sounds of the North".
