Elsewhere, 'Hills Where I Began' continues to receive excellent reviews (see this site's 'review' section) and encouraging sales via Bandcamp, Itunes, and other online music sites including this website.
Jimi said he was delighted with the figures. "It's great to know people are listening to the new tracks, sometimes several times over" he added.
"When I involve myself in a new music project it has to be, first and foremost, something which interests me, otherwise why bother? We had a lot of fun putting the tracks together and it's great to know that a lot of people - certainly by my humble standards - are enjoying listening to it. Very satisfying".
'Hills Where I Began' is the first of three releases planned by Jimi and song writing partner Neil Warden in which less emphasis is placed on bagpipes in exchange for, in the words of one reviewer, "more story and more swagger."
"Swashbuckling updates of quite intense Border ballads" the Celtic Ways reviewer added. "Jimi also draws on his own experiences of growing up in the Scottish Borders".
