Album Review

The combination of Gaughan and Irvine, towering figures in Scottish and Irish music, respectively, makes this more of an interesting mix — even if not all the material comes from those Celtic sources (no one's going to mistake Dylan's "My Back Pages" for something Celtic, even though Gaughan's rendition brings a while new perspective to it). It's very much an equal partnership, each bringing plenty to the table; Irvine's version of "Captain Colston" (probably better known from an older Steeleye Span cover) is a standout for its heartbreak, although it pales next to the album's gem, a stunning take on the Scots "Floo'ers o' the Forest" that doesn't seem a moment too long at seven and a half minutes. The bonus cut, "Thousands Are Sailing to Amerikay," is applicable to both countries and forms a perfect conclusion to what is often a commonality between cultures with a common root. Beautifully played and wonderfully performed, this is a delight of a record.

Customer Reviews

Love this record

Dick Gaughan's version of My Back Pages is worth the price and five stars alone. The rest of the record is a gift. This is one of my favorites from my youth and Irish music daze. Love to see Andy Irvine's The Gathering on iTunes as well. Another great one from the same period.
