Entertainment Reviews:

Uncut - 5/03, p.122
"...HIGH LAND, HARD RAIN seems more poignant 20 years on....Albums this electrifying - this pure, if you like - are few and far between in these indifferent times..."
Magnet - p.130
"Roddy Frame used his big, warm, sweet acoustic strum to welcome shivering masses in search of refuge."
Pitchfork (Website) - "HIGH LAND is not only his first statement of intent as a songwriter, it's his most innovative, his most influential, and his most timelessly vivid."

Arranger: Roddy Frame.
Formed in 1980 by teenage Glaswegian Roddy Frame, Aztec Camera captivated the UK music scene with their delightful 1983 debut album, HIGH LAND, HARD RAIN. Released after a string of singles and compilation tracks on obscure labels like Postcard and Les Disques du Crepuscule, HIGH LAND, HARD RAIN seemed to come out of nowhere, completely at odds with the synthesizers and haute couture then prevalent in the British charts.
Strumming a completely unfashionable acoustic guitar and dressed down in similarly unpretentious clothes, the 18-year-old Frame delivered his heartfelt songs with a charming lack of guile and sincere, boyish enthusiasm. Filled with remarkable, captivating songs, including the singles "Oblivious" and "Walk Out to Winter" as well as the stirring "We Could Send Letters" and the hyperactive "The Boy Wonders," HIGH LAND, HARD RAIN is a timeless pop classic.
