More's the pity, I'd no idea Planxty had got together for this concert series, still less that they'd put out this CD, until someone recommended it. On first listening I thought: nice, by third hearing: superb.
The music speaks for itself, the performance and musicianship is warm, fresh and just about faultless - as good if not better than the Planxty of 30 years before, and how many bands can you honestly say that about?
Just a word about the song Little Musgrave, the music for which Christy Moore is supposed to have discovered by chance. It bears a very strong resemblance to Matty Groves on Fairport's classic album Liege and Lief - compare the story and the words: only the names and the tune are different.
