Extra Info: Fantastic Album !! Original UK 1st press LP on Fontana. Minty dream audio ... Mindblowing album !!

~~~ Folk KILLLER ... One side has more traditional Celtic music and the other is the most mind-blowing combination of traditional and rock and roll ever made on the planet. It is an in concert recording and the crowd cheering helps provide atmosphere. Stivell is a harpist and has a beautiful if slightly raspy voice which is perfect for all the songs. My own favorite on the album is Foggy Dew which is just loaded with emotion. There are traditional Celtic instruments such as the bombard and harp as well as standard rock guitars and others. Believe me, you have never heard anything like this ...deserves a strong recommendation ....
