Planxty are perhaps the most influential band of the 70s Irish folk scene, both in terms of music and personnel. Placed next to the latter-day work of Donal Lunny, Christy Moore et al, these tracks (collected from all three Planxty albums) sound young, fresh and raw and are all the better for it. There's none of the studio polish that bigger budgets would bring, just a vibrant set of tunes and songs. Liam Flynn's piping is constantly fantastic, his playing on "Merrily Kissed The Quaker" and "Cliffs Of Dooneen" giving Planxty a vital link to the folk purists. At the other end of the spectrum, Lunny's bouzouki playing comes straight out of rock & roll rhythm, giving the band a real urgency and energy. Christy Moore meets the two somewhere in the middle, sprinting through "The Raggle Taggle Gypsy" one moment, breathtakingly beautiful on "As I Ro!ved Out" the next. More than just a snapshot of a crucial period in the nation's musical history, The Planxty Collection provides a recognisable blueprint for what was to follow over the following 30 years. --Phil Udell
