Editorial Reviews

The melodies on Collection may be ancient but this is the sound of a revolution. Before Paddy Maloney gathered together some of the best traditional musicians in Ireland in 1963 to form a band, such music was performed solo, if at all. The Chieftains not only reintroduced traditional music to the Irish public, they pioneered a new way of playing it. Bands such as Planxty, the Bothy Band, Clannad, and Altan all owe the Chieftains a debt of gratitude. The tracks on this CD are drawn from their first five records and represent a time before they began to compose movie soundtracks, jam with rock stars, and collaborate with symphony orchestras. This is the music of the Chieftains in its purest form. --Michael Simmons

I have been looking for a long time for a Irish album like this one. This is a collection of many traditional airs, reels, and slides that are performed very well. I heard many of these tracks when I visited Ireland a couple of years ago. If you are looking for a album that really represents the full range of traditional Irish music, I really encourage you to purchase this album.
