I know music's all a matter of taste but this to me is one of the greatest music DVDs ever, beautifully directed by Mike Alexander and immaculately engineered by Iain Hutchinson. I've seen just about all of these musicians live at Celtic Connections over the years, so the gorgeous musicianship of the likes of Michael McGoldrick, Stuart Duncan, Russ Barenberg and co comes as no surprise and it's all too easy to take Danny Thompson's magic for granted. I thought TS3 was pretty darned good but this is even better. The ones that really blow me away are: Dan Tyminski's "The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn" (McGoldrick and Jerry Douglas both just wonderful on this), James Taylor's "Millworker", Liam Ó Maonlai's "Worksong" (what a line-up of backing singers and I've never heard a Dobro playing hard rock through a fuzzbox before), Stuart Duncan's "Lee Highway Blues" (effortlessly, scarily brilliant) and Alison Moorer's utterly stunning "Carrickfergus" (I gather Aly Bain said it was the best version he'd ever heard and he certainly responds with some beautifully sensitive fiddle playing. Most of the other versions I've heard are over-sentimental for my taste - even a little twee; this is just deeply felt and lived in). Great also to see the inclusion of rising stars like Emily Smith and Julie Fowlis (or has she already risen?) Ok, there are one or two items I enjoy a little less - it's almost inevitable, given the range of the programmes - but I never stop admiring the quality of performance. Buy it! Wonder at it! Enjoy it!
