Throughout the 1980s Stocktons Wing were labelled Pop, Rock, Folk, Trad, Celtic Fusion (and a lot worse) by different publications, but for the tens of thousands who attended the almost 1500 performances across Ireland, the UK and America, Stocktons Wing just meant good music and a great night out. This album captures that feeling. Produced by their good friend Bill Whelan, who later achieved major success with Riverdance, the recording will without doubt bring back many memories of their youth, to many now forty somethings. The album, which has been digitally remastered for this release, also includes three bonus studio recordings of the band from the same period. From their inception in 1977 Stocktons Wing were one of Irelands leading live acts with their infectious blend of Pop, Rock and Traditional Irish music. While the band was formed by a quartet of All-Ireland champion musicians in Maurice Lennon (fiddle), Paul Roche (flute), Kieran Hanrahan (banjo) and Tommy Hayes (bodhran), it was the introduction of Singer/Songwriter Mike Hanrahan in 1980 that shifted the emphasis from straight traditional music to a mix of fiery traditional sets combined with original songs and instrumentals. Throughout the 1980s they toured extensively, not only on the Irish circuit but also in America, Canada, Europe & Australia. In the summer of 88 they shared the stage with Michael Jackson in Cork. The following year they appeared with the late Sammy Davis Jnr in Dublin as part of his world tour with Frank Sinatra & Liza Minnelli. In 1990 they went on location to perform in the film production of the John B. Keane play "The Field" with Oscar nominees Richard Harris and John Hurt.
