It includes some peerlessly played tune sets and instrumentals, one of which is an `aisling' or vision poem, "Taimse Im Chodladh", one of the most beautiful of slow airs. Uilleann piper, Liam O'Flynn gives it true feeling and emotion, while Donal Lunny (who also produced the record) brings his creative genius to it on the synthesiser.. On the singing side, Andy Irvine and Christy Moore demonstrate their talents at the expressive and narrative demands of ballad vocals.
Others reviewing this disc have praised the Irish emigration ballad "Thousands Are Sailing", written by Cathal McConnell and Robin Morton and I can do no more than add my plaudits. It is impossible not to sympathise with the émigrés about to leave their beloved Ireland.
Planxty, themselves so creative in their treatment of music and song, pay tribute to another creative genius with their rendition of Bob Dylan's "Pity the Poor Immigrant" and do it so beautifully I'm sure Dylan will have been moved by their version.
This completely captivating record ends with an English composition from the 16th century, "The Irish Marche", is part of a suite written by William Byrd.
Planxty conclude this classic album with their exhilarating and stirring rendition of this piece and certainly left me wanting more!

I cut my Planxty teeth on this album way back in the 80s on cassette tape and now have it on CD. It is softer and more gentle than earlier albums but that is what makes it special. Read morePublished on 16 Nov. 2012 by D. McCann
