I've returned to buy this album on CD. It is a true classic featuring the beautiful 'Little Musgrasve' the story of which Christy Moore found on an old bit of paper in an antique shop. The tune. 'The Ladys Pantalettes' was used once by Mary Black for her song Carolina Rua. ,This is a powerful, timeless and hypnotic album with some of the band's own favourite tracks. Lunny is at his best; O'Flynn's piping is masterclass and the vocals of Andy Irvine are expert. This set the standard for contemporary trad bands. A 'must have' Trad. album

Though the critics at the time having not very appreciate the album, Planxty members still considered "The Woman I Loved So Well" their artistic peak. In fact, it was - and it IS - a great one. Beautiful ballad (named two: "True Love Know No Season", done by Christy Moore, and "Johnny of Brady's Lea", done by Andy Irvine), alternate dances and tunes conducted by Liam O'Flynn, but in which Donal Lunny - superb co-producer of the album - innovate the sound of irish folk, introducing the electronic keyboards (played by Bill Whelan): a formula developped latter and still actually. This done at the album a unique flavour, in balance between the classic '70 sounds of irish folk band and the more actually arrangements.
But, most of all, this is the album of the wonderful, suspendend, magic coda of "Little Musgrave", playing by the flute of Matt Molloy...

Format: Audio CD
Planxty had something special about them that appealed beyond the usual folk audience. I was never too taken by traditional Irish folk but I devleoped a passion for this band.
Why's that?
It's wonderfully played, each tune is memorable, the singing voices of Christy Moore and Andy Irving are great, and it all feels so uplifting, even the sad songs.
This album is no lesser, or greater, than their others but has some stand out tracks like Little Musgrave, Roger O'Hehir,The Ladies Pantalettes and the simple but infectious opener, True Love Knows No Season.
