3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Platinum
Moving Hearts made two stunning albums in the 1980s - "Moving Hearts" and "The Storm". I bought "Moving Hearts" at a festival near Leeds minutes after the band had left the stage to a standing ovation after playing a drop dead set. One omission from the "Moving Hearts" album is the last track, No Time For Love, a pro-Republican, anti-British song that is worth the price...

Moving Hearts made two stunning albums in the 1980s - "Moving Hearts" and "The Storm". I bought "Moving Hearts" at a festival near Leeds minutes after the band had left the stage to a standing ovation after playing a drop dead set. One omission from the "Moving Hearts" album is the last track, No Time For Love, a pro-Republican, anti-British song that is worth the price of the album alone. This contains so much passion and, after a few verses from Christy Moore, Davy Spillane ("The Jimi Hendrix of the pipes" as Christy introduced him) kicks in with an amazing solo on the Uillean pipes guaranteed to send shivers down the spine every time. Towards the end Keith Donald also delivers a superb sax solo before Spillane joins him again in the fade-out. The Hearts also do justice to Jackson Browne's Before The Deluge with Christy Moore again on vocals.

"The Storm" is a different beast altogether; an instrumental album with an amalgam of styles and rythmns which segue into each other. Unmistakeably Irish and demands repeat playing.

If it's a platinum collection of Moving Hearts you require, I'd avoid this one - which contains tracks from the second album, Dark End Of the Street, a collection I consider inferior to the two forementioned - and treat yourself to both "Moving Hearts" and "The Storm". You won't be disappointed.

Best Of albums are generally a waste of time and seem to be put together by some billy goat at the record company with two tin ears . There are a few exceptions - Best Of The Eagles springs to mind but not much else . This compilation probably contains all the Moving Hearts you need for your self respecting rock library . This is now an instrumental band but back in the day they had some fine singing and , when they got going , enough drive to blister the paint on the back door . This band included Christy Moore , Declan Sinnott , Donal Lunny and Davey Spillane . Need I say more ?

I am a Spillane fan and also a Christy moore fan, so the mix of this is something I like, it is easy to play in the background while I read, and it sometimes causes me to stop and listen to sequences of instrumental sectikons or to the haunting vocals of Moore.

I like it.
