"Dialect and settings were authentic, but I would have liked to have heard and seen much more. Burns country has so much more to offer visually. There is no substitute for hearing Burns works read in authentic dialect. For viewers not familiar with the dialect, a score or subtitles would have been very helpful.
I was extremely pleased with another purchase, the multi-volume set of recordings of Burns' songs. They were complete and included scores."

"The first DVD was defective, so I returned it for a replacement, which was also defective. From what I could see, the performance was excellent, but both DVDs were not. This was very disappointing and I hope I can find a good copy. If I can, I'll try again. This artist was, by the way, very favorably reviewed in The Scots Magazine."
