Product Description

Amazon.ca

This collection features an upbeat set of tunes from a nice variety of Celtic players. The focus is on dance and Blair Douglas gets things off on the right foot with the percussion-rich piece "The Landlord's Walk" before accordionist John Whelan steps in with some jigs and reels. Highlights of this mostly instrumental acoustic album include Old Blind Dogs' spirited medley, Kim Robertson's crystalline harp on the song "Molly on the Shore", the Alasdair Frasier and Paul Machlis tracks, and the "Cregg's Pipes" set by Tabache. Overall this is a thoroughly enjoyable album. --Jeff Grubb

5.0 out of 5 stars Toe Tappin' Fun Nov. 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
If this sort of music doesn't make your feet itch to dance then you had better stay out of the pubs in any once Celtic land.
These are dance pieces that are perfect for putting you in a good mood. Not much singing, mainly instrumentals; this album will make you feel good and sorry you can't play the fiddle or harp!
My one complaint would be that the last two songs are more filler than the rest of the album but yet I listen to them as well when this CD is playing. My favorites are The Landlord's Walk and Spirit of the Gael. Both are quite moving and grand.
If you like the harp, fiddle, accordion and Irish-type music in general you will enjoy this CD.

Let me get things straight from the beginning: the content of this CD is fabulous. Then, you might ask, why 3-stars only? Well, the primary reason for me buying this CD was that it has been recorded in HDCD format...To my great disappointment, after this was delivered to me here in Germany (which means extra tax paid on top of its price) I found out that it is not HDCD encoded. Pity and shame...Going back to the CD itself, fantastic dance music, really thrilling content. Wish I could say the same about the service...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as "Forever Green" Feb. 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD because I loved "Forever Green" in the same series. I was very disappointed in this one. If you like Irish jigs, it's a great CD. I do like them, but in moderation. When played one right after another, as on this album, they quickly get on your nerves. This CD was not worth the purchase price. If you want a good variety of music, buy "Forever Green".

5.0 out of 5 stars An eclectic collection of traditional and contemporary tunes June 23 2009
By Lia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this after much review on Amazon, and it was exactly what I was looking for. It is a wonderfully varied collection of Irish jigs and reels with some other less traditional but still lovely tunes mixed in. The Amazon previews you can listen to adequately provide samples of the music.

Kim Robertson does a lovely harp piece called Molly on the Shore which has White Coral Bells hummed in the beginning - may sound unusual or even weird, but it really works and it ends up going through my head all day it is so lovely. There are some pieces by John Whelan included as well that get my toes tapping each time I listen to them. What I like best is that none of the songs sound repetitive with one another since there are various artists and music styles presented.

My daughter Irish dances to some, but there is enough variety mixed it that I enjoy just listening to it while making dinner when she takes a break from dancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you want to get up and dance! June 17 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought three different CDs of Celtic music at the same time, and end up listening to this one all the time. It's full of enthusiasm and great fiddlin'. Don't miss "Finnigan's Wake" -- it'll pull you out of your chair!
