Incredible performances

I adore this album. Mick Jagger is incredible on The Long Black Veil. I also loved The Rocky Road to Dublin.

A Must Have

This album is incredible in it's depth and stellar cast. The Chieftains do some amazing collaborations on this album. The clear standouts are "The Foggy Dew" w/ Sinead O'Connor to start. Her vocals send chills down your spine transporting you to the scene of the Easter Uprising. The Dunmore Lassies is another standout for anyone who is a fan of slide guitar. Ry Cooder does another masterful collaboration by doing the slide work on this one. The Lily of the West is a wonderful story of a lover wronged, told by Mark Knopfler. The chorus is played by the Chieftains. There is a good version of "Have I Told You Lately" adding flutes, and pipes. "He Moved Through the Fair" is another great one.

Old New Old New

I had this album on tape back in 95 and it had such haunting and yet beautiful sounds utilizing the pop artists at the time. I wore the tape out and over the years thought about finding it in digital format. With the emergence of philip philips and mumford and sons the sound has started to come full circle. I am adding it to my digital library and have a feeling that these old new songs and tones will be revisited as well.
