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

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW...SIMPLY AMAZING! 10 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific CD, with its wild meld of celtic, pop, folk, and country strains. The Chieftains, accompanied by such music greats as Sting, Mick Jagger, Sinead O'Connor, The Rolling Stones, Marianne Faithfull, Tom Jones, Van Morrison, among others...who would have thought such an assemblage would result in such a cohesive recording of such wildly divergent music? Of particular note are Sting's mournful rendition of "Mo Ghile Mear" and Sinead O'Connor's stylization of "The Foggy Dew" and "He Moved Through The Fair". Mick Jagger also does justice to "A Long Black Veil". This CD is simply a great recording overall!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiddles, whistles and rock stars! 27 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD certainly proves that The Chieftains have friends in high places! This album is packed full of rock stars (Mick Jagger, Sting, Sinead O' Connor, Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Tom Jones and Marianne Faithfull) singing traditional Irish songs. This is an interesting album and the songs do work better than I expected them too. This is a lively collection of songs and none of the artists sound out of place, but I think I would still prefer hearing these songs sung by folk singers. Nonetheless this is a good introduction to The Chieftain's style of music and an essential buy if you are a fan of the artists involved.

I love Celtic music and have been thinking of buying the Chieftain's music for years. Well I finally got around to it and believe me it was well worth it. I enjoyed every minute of this album, favourite tracks are, 'Have I told you that I love you' and 'The Lily of the West'. I also bought 'Santiago' and 'The Wide World Over'. All three albums are a good buy. The title song on this album 'The Long Black Veil is one that I have known for years as it was one of my favourite songs sung by Johnny Cash and that is what attracted me to this album in the first place.

This album in my opinion is not as good overall as the other 2 of the Chieftains that I bought, some of the collaborations did not work for me, but did enjoy some tracks.
