Biography

Six time Grammy winners, The Chieftains, are now recognised for bringing traditional Irish music to the world's attention. They have uncovered the wealth of traditional Irish music that has accumulated over the centuries, making the music their own with a style that is as exhilarating as it is definitive.

The Chieftains were formed in 1962 by Paddy Moloney, from the ranks of the top ... Read more in Amazon's The Chieftains Store

3.0 out of 5 stars No it's not 25 Oct 2010
By Peter Reeve VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The Chieftains have been around for nearly 50 years and have released around 40 albums. During that time they have had many changes of lineup and engaged in many collaborations and crossovers. To select tracks from just 3 albums from a 3-year period and call it 'The Best of' is misleading, to say the least. It would make a good 'Best of Vol 2', if a selection from the pre-Columbia years had been the 'Best of Vol 1'. The liner notes struggle to rationalize the selection by calling it 'an overview of a dramatic phase' in the band's history. Maybe so. The notes end by saying 'this is only a chapter in an epic tale'. Quite so.

That said, there's some first rate Irish music here, perfect for your St Patrick's Day party. This is the sort of thing that, if you like this sort of thing, you'll like this. Just don't be misled into thinking you are getting 'the best of'. You are getting 'some fine examples of'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the Chieftains 12 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
At 2.99 this is a ggod price for an introduction to the Chieftains, with a wide range of their style of music. A personal favourite would be the track " O'Sullivans March" which is a high quality recording and sounds great on a hi-fi. Not sure if all the tracks have been remastered, some of them have a faint hiss in the background

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best 28 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
I think have collected all the available Chieftains recordings, but I think "The Best of.." should include "Carrickfergus". and I wish they would have recorded "Planxty Irwin" somewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chieftains review 21 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard the Chieftains on record at a friend's house when I was a teenager many years ago nad the experience left an impression on me. This compilation offers a sense of the band's music, though not comprehensive, it still manages to conjure up images of the wild landscape of Ireland.
