CD Reviews

Glad to see this available again

"I was surprised to notice that this CD wasn't available for some time on Amazon, and happy to see the 2008 re-release. I still have a 1993 version of the CD, and my review is based on that. I am presuming nothing has changed in terms of sound quality, but I encourage others to correct me if I'm wrong about that.

This collection is as good or better than everyone says. The music is very lively, and makes for great listening no matter whether you are into Irish traditional music or not. I am a big fan of Tommy Peoples, Kevin Burke and Matt Molloy, and I consider it a big plus to have them all represented on the same CD. Also great sounds from uileann pipes, accordion and bouzouki. I've never been sure whether Triona Ni Dhomhnaill is playing harpsicord, clavinet, or both, but she's got a great sound not matter which it is.

I like the quicker tunes best, and my favorite sets are The Salamanca/The Banshee/The Sailor's Bonnet and Leitrim Fancy/Round The World For Sport/Rip The Calico/Martin Wynne's/The Enchanted Lady/The Holy Land. For me the CD would be more than worth the price based on these tunes alone. There's also a very beautiful version of The Blackbird - air, set dance and reel. As compared to the tunes, I'm not as excited about the songs and vocals, but that's just my preference. Anyway, I recommend this as a CD you will listen to again and again."

"Yes, this is as good or better than everyone says. The music is very lively, and makes for great listening no matter whether you are into Irish traditional music or not. I am a big fan of Tommy Peoples as well as Kevin Burke, and I consider it a big plus to have them both here on the same CD (although not together on the same tunes). I really don't have much to add to what the other reviewers have already said, except that I agree with the good things, and I recommend this as a CD you will listen to again and again."
