Andy had for years longed to pay homage to East European folk music and here, with piper Davey Spillane and producer/arranger Bill Whelan, he realises a worthy dream. Some of Ireland's finest jazz and folk musicians were pressed into service while a Bulgarian flavour is added by the string playing of Nikola Parov. But it is the wonderful vocals of Hungary's Marta Sebestyen that steals the show.
The end result is a joyous selection of folk and dance tunes - the sort of dance music that compels the most conservative of Irish step dancers to throw their hands in the air. It's not surprising the one of Bill Whelan's next projects was to compose the music for Riverdance.
Erika Borsos (bakonyvilla)
Twenty two years later, it's still hard to say what that pigeonhole should be: it's really halfway between straight folk - very authentic considering it's Balkan music played mostly by Irishmen - and lounge jazz. And it's that aspect, with tinny keyboards, congas and boingy bass, that comes close to spoiling it. It was the early 90s, after all - which in Folk terms is the same as being the 80s. If you don't believe me, witness Irvine and Spillane's 'Scouser' perms in the booklet photo.
An interesting curiosity, but better stick to Muszikas and Planxty respectively.
