I just bought the new live Solo Fiddle CD Ego Trip by MacDara O Raghallaigh it's a Cracker!



Paddy in the Smoke - various

An Buachaill Dreoite - Joe Ryan

Mary MacNamara - herself

Traditional Irish Flute Music - Fintan Vallely

Ah but, there's loads.

Drivin' Leitrim Timber

Sheridans Guesthouse- both Dave Sheridan


Planxty - Words and Music

John Mc Sherry - Soma

Guidewires - 2

Matt Molloy - Stone Steps - the touchstone for budding flute maestros and arrangers

I've got that Paddy in the Smoke, it really is a brilliant album.

Ronan O Flaherty and Edel Fox

At The Racket - "It's Not Racket Science"

The Bothy Band - Afterhours "Live In Paris"


De Dannan - The Mist Covered Mountain

Mairtin O'Connor - The Connaughtman's Rambles


Yes, i guess we could all write endless lists : )

Albums that immediately pop up in my mind though are:

Bothy Bands first album

Colm Murphy 'An Bodhrán'

Paddy Keenans first solo album

'Doublin' Paddy Keenan and Paddy Glackin

Christy Moore 'Live at The Point'

Yeah, 'An Bodhran' was a killer album.  I just wish Colm would put out another one like it.  The problem with a lot of solo albums like that is that you often don't get a follow up.  Another example is Dermot Byrne's album from back in the day.  I'd LOVE to see him put out another one as well!
Well, I rated it as the best album I owned when I bought it all those years ago, and I suppose I still do. James Galway and The Chieftains in Ireland. Its full of "Standards", but the best versions I have ever heard. They just make me smile every time I hear them. Its like a palate cleanser, for the ears.

Poirt an Phiobaire by Paddy Keenan

First Album: 1975 by The Bothy Band

Planxty by Planxty

Since a few people have mentioned the debut albums of well-known bands as being fantastic, I'd say De Dannan's should also be mentioned.  For most of us in NA, this would be the 'Selected Jigs, Reels and Songs' since the one before that is really hard to find.  That album, to me, was even better than the Bothy Band's first one.
