5.0 out of 5 stars A rare album that needs to be offered in MP3 downloads 17 Aug. 2008
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
I have appreciated the instrumentals of Stockton's Wings as being exemplary traditional Irish Music for years. My only problem with the group has been the singing. The singing typical sounds like an American stage production while my strong preference is traditional Irish Music sung either in Irish Gaelic or in Irish accented English.

I am giving this album a five rating due to the instrumentals being exceptional and a significant contribution to Irish traditional music.

Stockton's Wing was formed in 1977 in County Ennis Ireland with five all-Ireland Contest winners - Paul Roche, Maurice Lennon, Kieran Hanrahan, and pioneering bodhran repeated winner Tommy Hayes. Tony Callihan won the Guinness sponsored traditional music competition.

Their biography can be found at [...]

It is vintage out of publication material that is basically unavailable otherwise, and from what I remember half of the tracks are instrumentals. The banjo, mandolin, flute, tinwhistle, fiddle, guitar, bones and bodrhan mix is relaxed and smooth. This is a highly talented group that deserves rediscovery.
