A present from Lost In Tyme

Tir Na Nog "Hibernian"
Live at Hibernian, Birmingham 1995

Reviewer: A music fan
Leo O'Kelly and Sonny Condell recorded this live in 1995 at the Hibernian in Birmingham . There is something of a health warning on the inner sleeve on sound, but the songs are almost manslaughtered by the low quality master tapes.
Out of the twelve songs performed 'Time is like a Promise' and 'So Freely' deliver romantic medieval imagery. Leo O'Kelly's 'Venezuela' has since become his signature tune. The flamenco- style guitar in tandem with the haunting lyrics transport the listener far across the North Atlantic Ocean to the setting of a peasant village in the Black and White TV documentary somewhere in the misty seventies that inspired this melody.

'Two White Horses' makes the new listener believe that a modern version of Simon and Garfunkel is now hitting the new millenium. Some of the other tracks remind one of those love dirges from the dust bowl of Woody Guthrie's 1950's America.

01. Time Is Like A Promise
02. When I Came Down
03. Love Is Like A Violin
04. Someone To Dance With
05. So Freely
06. Driving

07. Venezuela
08. Down In The City
09. Teeside
10. Looking Up
11. Two White Horses
12. Bluebottle Stew

I could have posted it in : "Lost-In-Tyme" blog. But i 've posted it here instead, so that every visitor will be capable of understanding that bloggers are putting their personal ambitions aside, united by a common goal : to transmit music vibes all over the world without expecting to gain profit out of it!!!

I can't say enough in praise of Lost in Tyme and Time Has Told Me blogs -- the music is so interesting and diverse. My only problem is having enough time to get through the great quantity of music offered on these blogs. The personal touch is very important to me, one can download hundreds of albums elsewhere, but without sensitive comments. I'm devoting this weekend to checking the archives of these blogs, they are so worthwhile.
Thanks again for everything. (Canada, Oct 21)
