Traditional Irish Music
One of my favourite albums that I never ever get sick of is "I was flyin it" by damp in the attic. P.J King, Martin Murray, Cyril O'Donoghue and Colm Murphy. Deadly stuff, cranking tunes.
I heard a 30 second sample track of this album once on a website somewhere and I've been trying to get it ever since, but every place I've tried to order from never has it in stock. It's been impossible to find!
Damn right! I wish Colm would record another one. Dermot Byrne also needs to put out a new solo album, while I'm thinking about it - and there's been talk of a Derek Hickey solo album for I don't know how long now. Hopefully that comes off.
This one has been on loop in my car for months now!
Ah - thats a pity, maybe try get in contact with the musicians themselves? Or custys maybe Its well worth it.
The Chieftains - the best of.
The album Steam by John williams is a super album and is more then well worth a listen to.
I would include
Banks of the Shannon - Paddy O' Brien and Seamus Connolly
Teada - Ceol agus Cuimhne
Both albums by Éamon de Buitléar agus Ceoltóirí Laighean, An Bóthar Cam and Star of Munster. I bought these on cassette tape in 1975 and fortunately, Gael-Linn has recently re-released them on CD. I never get tired of listening to these. Some of the finest and most satisfying bosca ceoil ever. The young Paddy Glackin and Mary Bergin shine through. The harping of Aibhlín McCrann, so beautiful as to bring tears to the eyes.
