"According to the album insert, "The predominant theme of De Danann's new LP featuring singer Maura O'Connell from Ennis is the awakened interest in the heyday of Irish-American music in the 1920's." I enjoyed this album, but I can't say anything jumped out as outstanding -- with the exception of 2 songs: Maggie and Come Back Again To Me, Mavourneen (both performed by O'Connell). The remaining songs are average old-fashioned Irish tunes, jigs, and reels.I first found out about De Danann from an album called Celtic Tapestry. I found myself enamoured by the voice singing the song Maggie. I learned that Maggie was on their Star Spangled Molly album and purchased it in hopes of hearing more of that wonderful voice. Unfortunately, that singer (Maura O'Connell) only performs 3 songs on the album. She has since started her own successful solo career.If you like older, more traditional styles of Irish/Celtic music you will probably enjoy this album. If you like the newer styles of Irish/Celtic music (like The Corrs or Loreena McKennitt), you may not be happy with this album."

"Twenty plus years ago I heard Maura sing "Maggie" at the Birchmere. She came on between sets of Sam Bush and Bela Fleck (don't forget John Cowan) She was young and so was I. I have heard the echo of that song for many years and was so delighted to find this CD. De Danann is a treat, but Maura makes this CD a no miss dessert"
