A Mature Planxty,
This review is from: Live 2004 (Audio CD)
If you've never heard Planxty play before you will love this album. If you have but have not heard them recently you will enjoy the maturity that has come into their sound over the years, although it still maintains it's raw and exciting origins which made Planxty such a hit back in the 70's when they appeared on the trad scene. If you saw the Planxty gigs in Vicar Street, from which this is recorded, this album is a 'must have' and will bring you back to the cold winter nights in January and February 2004 when Planxty warmed us all with their music. Also, do yourself a favour and get hold of the Planxty Live DVD, which is a visual recording of the same concerts, and is a master-class in the playing Bodhráns, Bazoukis, Banjoes, Guitars & Uileann Pipes - amazing stuff.
