CD Reviews

Spillane in full flight !!
08/04/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A very good CD, purchsed on the back of the above reviews.There are some classic Spillane numbers on here. Shifting Sands and Undertow (the first two tracks) get things off to a fast start that hears Davy's magic pipes trading places with fast guitar licks and great sax sounds care of superb session support. It's everything you want to hear.The whole album "gels" well, with a complement of quick up-tempo songs and smooth melodies. I'm not too sure about the diggerido (track 4), but it is the only flaw in a classic Spillane disc.Although I give it 5 stars, I am sure that there is better to come. This album touches genius in places, but remains just a very good effort. Something is not quite there, although I can't fault it out of 5. I guess nineteen out of twenty would be a better score.Davy certainly performs at his best on the fast reels & jigs, accompanied by a fast guitar & alto sax. Let's see an album of him "flat out", at his best on the edge, classic irish 33 1/3 melodies played at 78 rpm."
Davy Spillane has done it again!!

"I didn't think he could get any better than the previous releases. Yet I am pleasantly surprised with each song on this CD. The effort as a whole is extraordinary. Taking the lucky listener on an unbelievable journey. He's absolutely amazing. His pipes are perfectly complimented with clear, driving lead guitar and bass, keyboards, synthesized strings, and Keith Donald's outstanding saxophone style riding the flawless drum work. I've about worn out my favorite track, "Midnight Walker". This is one of those ethereal pieces that caress your heart like a tender lover and leave you simply breathless. Wonderful work, Davy. You're still my fave!"
