This is surely the best Clannad's collection. It offers us a precise cross-section of their already 30 years old work, including tracks from those first, pure folk albums, over very rare live recordings, eighties-pop, to nineties, in which they managed to keep their place at the throne of Irish folk, but ambiental and new age music as well. This compilation should stand at the end of every Clannad-fan's collection.

ON LISTENING TO THIS CD, YOU HEAR THE PROGESSION OF THE FINEST GROUP IN IRELAND. THE EARLY MUSIC IS VERY BASIC, BUT NICE AND GOES ONTO THE EIGHTIES MUSIC AND RIGHT THROUGH TO A BRIDGE(THAT CARRIES US OVER). A MUST FOR TRUE CLANNAD FANS

Yes it's another compilation; but it mixes old and new really well. Nil Sen La is a live version from 1973 which I think I will call it fresh. Half is from early Clanad and rest from new Clannad. I love compliations where it hasa good mixture; and I'm not fussed it it's another compilation. I first heard 2 songs from Fuaim that I wasn't sure if I would like but having played this, I had no problem when I went Fuaim I got used to it after hearing 2 songs. It's a great album; and I would highy reccomended tbis album.

This is one of my favorite groups, but I get tired of buying the same songs over and over again. We don't need another <Greatest Hits> or <Collection>. Clannad already has the dubious distinction of having more compilation albums than fresh ones.
