The 1988 Eurovision Song Contest was the stage upon which the Hothouse Flowers first came to wider public prominance as the interval act and in the process launched their careers. People, their debut album, is one of the best Irish albums of the 1980's and ranks alongside better known albums such as U2's The Joshua Tree. The 13 tracks of celtic soul deal predominantly with love and relationships and showcases the fine musicianship and outstanding vocals of the group. Lead singer Liam O'Maonlai has one of the best voices you will hear and it is worth getting the album for this alone.
The outstanding tracks on this album are the two singles, Don't Go and I'm Sorry, which give Liam O'Maonlai a chance to demonstrate his voice and piano playing virtuosity. Other tracks which standout are the mournful Hallejuah Jordan and the bitter Yes I Was. The rest of the album is made up of soulful tracks which are a pleasure to listen to. If you only buy one Hothouse Flowers album this is the one to have, as it captures them at their best.

Released in 1989 the Hothouse Flowers debut album became an instant favourite in our household and has stayed in that position ever since with the next generation of 20-something daughters liking it just as much.

This eclectic mixture of RnB, rock and traditional Irish tunes played with a phenomenal precison is an inspiration to all would-be musicians.

Listen to the way the bass and drums shift emphasis without destroying the rythmn. Go out and buy it!

Hothouse flowers debut album from 1988 contains their biggest hit "Don't Go". What a great song!

I saw them at the RDS around that time (supported by Tracey chapman and Deacon blue).

Standout songs on the cd are hallelujah Jordan, Feet on the ground, i'm sorry, love don't work this way and it' ll be easier. There's some saxophone, piano and some traditional Irish instruments used like bodhran and bazouki. There are pop songs and some that are more Celtic and jazz influenced like the last song 'saved'.

Produced and engineered by Clive langer and Alan winstanley who also produced top albums by Madness, Morrisey, Elvis Costello...

The lyrics are printed on the cd booklet.

Definitely worth revisiting if you haven't heard it in a while.

Also try the cd's "Home", "songs from the rain" and "into your heart" for some beautiful music.

I had a very dodgy cassette recording of this from some years ago which I found when having a sort out. I really had forgotten just how good it was. It left me thinking I wanted to hear more.

One of the great debut albums, primarily for the outstanding musicianship throughout. The songs are all built on simple chord charts which will not be to everyones taste, however this results in the band being able to cut loose in ways you wouldn't normally hear on a pop recording. Jerry Fehily (drums) and Leo Barnes (sax) are outstanding and the band suffered as a result of their departure in 1994.
Liam O'maonlai's vocals pack a punch and the arrangements work every time.
Being released in the late 80's, the CD contains 2 "bonus tracks", "Lonely Lane" and "Saved", the latter containing a breathtaking Sax solo which has got to be one of Leo Barnes' finest.
"Home" and "Songs From The Rain" were both worthy follow-ups to this recording, and while subsequent offerings didn't quite reach the same heights, this album and the 2 that follow leave a small but high quality legacy.

This is a classic album for me and their best release. It has a certain feel good factor too! I can't believe was originally released 27 years ago. I'm Sorry and Don't Go are the two stand out singles but every other track is quality. Play loud and enjoy!

Not sure why I stopped listening to these a few years back as good listening today as they ever were. Had People on cassette which I have only just got around to replacing, so pleased I did, brilliant album, great to sing along too and get lost in.
