"I can honestly say that I have had a love affair with all of the songs in this video. Filming them was therefore a great pleasure - indeed a labour of love! and after all "The Video" is the most exciting medium of performance so far devised in mankind's technical achievements, and is only surpassed by live shows, but of course it is so satisfying for performers to know that at last their efforts can be preserved for the future.

So making this video has been both a pleasure and an honour, as I say, all the material herein is very special to me - perhaps it is to you too - I hope so. I thank you most sincerely for sharing these songs and stories in Rhyme with me, and I wish you happy viewing."

Slainte Mhath' Andy Stewart
