Recommend me a good bagpipe recording

Since foo folk know everything, I figured I'd ask here.

I was watching The Devil's Brigade this weekend, and, as with every time I watch soldiers in kilts marching to bagpipes and drums, I choked up in my mouth a little. It reminded me that I always mean to buy a CD or LP of such marching music but never quite get around to it.

Does anyone know this genre well enough to point me towards a good selection or two?

Thanks!

Seven Nations is an sweet band that often uses bagpipes in their songs. It's not really what you asked for, but they're awesome, so it's worth posting.

I will check when I get back home. But I am a fan of the massed bagpipe/drum military bands:

Try "Spirit of the Glen."

Also, if you want to hear the more melodic Uilleann (Irish) pipes, look for anything by Liam O'Flynn and the group Planxty.

Might be hard to find, but there are some recordings of the Denver Brass with the Colorado Isle of Mull Pipes and Drums. These are good, if traditional.

If you want a different interpretation, try the group Afro-Celt Sound System, or Jimi McRae.

Check out Rare Air, Primeval or Hard To Beat. Their fusion-y 'Space Piper' is beyond unlistenably horrendous though.
