Tir na nOg "Spotlight: BBC Recordings 1972-1973"

by danimik:
As a callow youth, I saw a duo perform in Cardiff. though there were but two of them, the energy and enthusiasm, the talent and musicianship they brought to the stage that night was awesome. Vigorous, tuneful, thoughful, sincere, poingnant by turns, by the end of the end of the set, I had become a huge fan.
I bought their lp's when the came out. Then I bought their cd's as they became available, and as I moved my collection steadily away from vinyl. All beautifully crafted, delicate, where the value of silence was given as much weight as any of the notes. Yet, superb as they all were, somehow, they failed to capture that enthusiasm, that energy I had heard on stage that night.
This cd brings it all back for me. Perhaps it isn't technically their most gifted production. Perhaps it is a little ragged in parts.

But it brings all the memories riding back from the first note to the last.

Eleven of these tracks were recorded for BBC Radio One, the other two recorded live at about the same time. All of them a well worth a listen, if you like intelligent acoustic music, with thoughtful lyrics, strong melodies, super voices and great musicians.
