The old Clannad you didn't know about :),
This review is from: Crann Ull (Audio CD)
The later Clannad albums, notably Banba, are very "Enya" - much synthesizer and ghostly-sounding female vocals. This album is so old I bought it on tape, and is more folksy, acoustic and even cheeky than any Clannad song that's hit the charts. (There's a similar album, the name of which eludes me, where one of the boys sings a kind of Irish rock'n'roll song. Unthinkable!)

The Clannad debut LP 1972 is excellent except for the track you mentioned "Liza". For me though, the 1980 Fuaim is the highlight, An tUll my ffavourite track bar none.

All of the five albums up to and including this one are good: Clannad, Clannad 2, Dulaman, In Concert, Crann Ull. In fact, the last four are among the best albums of Irish music ever. In my book Fuaim (actually released 1982) is the point where it starts to go off, though it does have some good tracks.
