CD Reviews

Traditional Irish at its best
Rhonda Swanson | Virginia | 07/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Bothy band is amazing...plain and simple. This album is everything the trad irish music lover could ever want. There are jigs, reels, laments...EVERYTHING. Grab your Guinness and put on your dancing shoes because this album will have you out of your chair and stepping all over the place!"
THE Bothy Band Album
Timothy Greenwood | Baltimore, MD | 08/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to disagree with several other reviews of this album- this is, for me, the best example of the masterful Bothy Band in full flight. The live setting removes the frequent over-production of great Irish musicians & almost every set on this record is excellent (a feat that 'After Hours', for example, cannot claim)

The combination of full-on jigs & reels (the opening 'Martin Wynne's' set being a good example), poignant & funny songs and pensive instrumentals (eg 'The Maids of Mitchelstown') is unmatched in any other Irish folk record which I have yet heard.

Paddy Keenan's 'Bucks of Oranmore' is indeed a highlight, but the whole set offers more than the rest of the Bothy's back catalogue. This is one of THE irish masterpieces and is a perfect demonstration of exciting music which doesn't rely on production effects - just legendary musicians playing fine tunes. This is one of the best records made in any genre."
A terrific record...

"And it is still available directly from Green Linnet on CD for about thirteen bucks. Check it out."
