I find it shocking there is only one review of one of the truly great Irish music albums.. The previous reviewer is hung up by the production but in truth it is very acceptable and not bad at all. What you cannot argue about is the spirit of the music. Noel Hill plays to the tradition. No contemporary flourishes for him he sticks to the old ways. This is a man who appeared on a radio interview with The Pogues and slagged them off as imitators. Hence the Pogues song 'Planxty Noel Hill'. I love the Pogues but love the art of this album.The emotion of this music is etched in every note. This album is one of the cornerstones of traditional Irish music. The Irish landscape feeds this music and is evoked by it. Buy it.

I've had this album for years and think it is a masterpiece. I guess opinions will be divided over the piano accompaniment but my own view is that it enhances Noel Hill's brilliance on the concertina. IMO, the 2 instruments complement one another perfectly.

If I could only have one recording of Irish traditional music, this album would probably be my pick.

A very prompt and efficient service. Glad to have used this seller. The recording itself is an example of brilliant concertina-playing ruined by an obtrusive piano accompaniment - sadly, not unusual today in recordings of Irish traditional music!
