Format: Audio CD
This might well be his best solo album to date and stands alongside classics such as his album with Paul Brady, the Planxty albums and his two recordings with Mozaik.He's in fine voice throughout, his mandola, bouzouki and harmonica are as virtuosic as ever and the song selection is superb. This is a wonderfully varied collection, moving from stirring union songs like his own epic "Victory At Lawrence" to the rustic whimsy of "The Girl Of Cushenden" and on to the vast and brooding re-telling of "The Demon Lover" complete with a time signature that defies analysis and a stunning arrangement (courtesy of the album's producer, Donal Lunny, one suspects) involving strings and even an orchestral bass drum which still manage to complement, rather than drown, Andy's own playing. - breathtaking! He has managed to break new ground yet again with this album, whilst still staying true to the music and the causes he believes in - a rare combination!

Andy Irvine has called his latest release "album of the century" as it is his first solo release since the 90's. Just to say it is well worth the wait - fabulous songs, singing and playing and lovely production by Donal Lunny. Each of the 11 songs is really top class. A personal triumph for Andy!

Format: Audio CD
A recording by Andy Irvine at any time should be heralded with a peel of trumpets but in addition to his own input what also makes for another significant CD for your collection is the company he chooses to surround himself with. That company on the opening track of the often related "Three Huntsmen" just happens to be Donal Lunny, Liam O'Flynn and on accordion Mairtin O'Connor. In the hands of a master craftsman the traditional tale of three huntsmen (one in particular) being outsmarted by a conniving witch of a woman has been told many times before but to be honest, who wouldn't relish the chance to wallow in a nostalgic `Planxty' type moment. The following track "Willy Of Winsbury" (with the melody being composed by Andy yet often credited as traditional by the likes of Richard Thompson who plagiarised it for "Farewell, Farewell") is a classic whichever way you look at it. On top of this, there are contributions from a stellar cast of folk musician `friends' including Bruce Molsky, Rick Epping and Annbjorg Lien among them. With time-honoured stories that wouldn't seem out of place in today's `red tops' including The Sun, the songs are treated with gravitas by Irvine whilst his own brilliant story-telling should be required listening by anyone who has a conscience. In this respect "The Spirit Of Mother Jones" eloquently states his opinion for a wronged militant agitator Mary Harris (originally from Cork) who fought for the rights of migrant workers in America. It's a great piece of writing that on reading the sleeve-notes makes you want to find out more about this fascinating character. This is an album that will not only engage you by its all-encompassing splendour but also hopefully make you think about everyday life and the consequences paid by the few who have tried to make a `real' difference. David and Nick please take note!
