Editorial Reviews

If there's a single early Chieftains album to get, this is it. It ranks among the best of their recordings from the 1960s when the group formed. Though containing fairly run-of-the-mill Irish material, it's far more spirited and inventive than Chieftains 1, thus illustrating the solid foundation of talent that has supported the Chieftains' music since the ensemble's inception. Like the group's first recording, this one is also available as part of the box set From the Beginning: The Chieftains 1 to 4, but this particular reissue has been remastered, with spectacularly crisp results. --Genevieve Williams

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By K. Cooper VINE VOICE on February 20, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Before they became household names and collaborators with the famous, the Chieftains started out as an all instrumental traditional Irish band. I was lucky enough to pick up this in a perfect shape vinyl about a year ago (so I can't speak to the quality of the CD sound). The music here is old fashioned Gaelic music played on old fashioned Gaelic instruments and played very well. Those who enjoy this type of music will be very pleased with this.
