CD Reviews

Still brilliant after all these years
Tadeusz Palac | Santo Domingo, DR | 10/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recently heard Raggle Taggle Gypsy on the radio and remembered how I loved this record when it first came out in the 70s. I still have the old vinyl record somewhere in storage (probably unplayable)and I try to listen to new music rather than buying old things again as CDs but this is one exception. It's still one of the finest collections of Irish music ever put together and has not dated at all! If anything it sounds even stronger now compared to much of the newer stuff coming out of Ireland. That segue from 'RTG' into to 'Tabhair..' is magnificent, leaves me exhilirated every time. Oh.. and I've always wanted to thank Planxty for the highest scoring Scrabble word I ever managed to make!!"
Celtic Music at Its Very Best

"If I were on a desert island with only a handful of CDs, this would be one of them. Brilliant work. I first heard Planxty in my uncle Mark's living room and oh how I fell in love with their music! Their "Raggle Taggle Gypsy" is phenomenal. And just when you think the song is over, you are treated to much much more fabulous music. The CD is filled with a lovely balance of tunes, lively songs, and ballads. Wonderful lyrics. Great CD. Absolutely a must have to any Celtic Collection."

"I simply never tire of this album. I wore out my vinyl copy; now I'll wear out the CD, if that's possible. Trad Irish music just doesn't get better than this."
