Before starting a well succeeded career in pop music, singer/songwriter Paul Brady was actively involved with the folk revival of the sixties. First with the group Johnstons (sisters Adrienne and Luci Johnston, plus Mick Moloney on guitar and vocals, another exponent of Irish traditional music), with whom he recorded five albums: "The Johnstons" (1968), "The Barley Corn" (1969), "Give a Damn" (1969), "Bitter Green" (1970) and "Colors of the Dawn" (1971). After a short time with the phenomenal Irish group Planxty in 1974 without recording, Paul recorded an album with Andy Irvine in 1976, some albums of traditional Irish music with extremely talented musicians - "The High Part of the Road" (1976) with fiddler Tommy Peoples, "Molloy/Brady/Peoples (1977), with flute player Matt Molloy and "It's a Hard Road to Follow" (1979) with fiddler Andy McGann.

In 1978 he recorded his only traditional solo album, "Welcome Here Kind Stranger", a masterpiece of the Irish folk music, which includes his benchmark versions of "The Lakes of Pontchartrain" and "Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore". It won him critical acclaim and it was awarded the Melody Maker Folk Album of the Year. Here he played with Tommy Peoples (fiddle), Noel Hill (concertina), Andy Irvine (mandolin & hurdy gurdy) and Donal Lunny (bouzouki). The group would give a concert in Dublin at that time recently rescued - The "Missing" Liberty Tapes - as good as the original LP. The album is quite acoustic with overlapping several string instruments with Brady's syncopated and percussive guitar style.

The final album of traditional material was "The Gathering", a self produced tracks by Paul himself, Matt Molloy, Andy Irvine, Donnal Lunny and others.

Highly recommended.

Paul Brady has had a long and productive career and this particular collection gives a glimpse into an earlier period as he was still working mainly in the folk idiom. An excellent collection of tunes and songs well worth adding to your collection.
