Show Details. Hide Details. The tradition of Irish folklore and music is one of the oldest in Western Europe. Having come through centuries of domination, hardship, depression and famine and seen her sons scatter to all corners of the world her music is descriptive of the sorrow, resurrection and joy of the many and various episodes of history, some written and many to be found only through her music.
This album does not intend to portray that history, but merely takes a selection of some of the most popular tunes of the last decade. Planxty : Out of the wealth of tradition in Ireland a group of specialists came together in the early seventies and called themselves Planxty. Their first single ""Cliffs of Doneen" quickly became a best seller and set them on the road to repeated success. In the space of a few years they made three albums which coloured the interpretation of Irish traditional music and won audiences all round Europe.
The most likely source for the Sutton release was an Empire City Six album on Hallmark but the only track they have in common is the Battle Hymn. Members of the Six say they only made two records the other was a collection of college football fight songs on ABC Paramound. Reissued on CD by Peter Pan. Available on Apple Music. Um, castanets are percussion! The Omega branding is in a white box because it was necessary to cover up the Hallmark logo. No artists are identified; these tracks were performed by a Hamburg ensemble under the direction of Heino Reese.
Somebody didn't realize that Schubert's 9th used to be counted as his 7th, which is how it was listed on OSL So they put it out again, this time getting the key wrong.
Licensed from Club Francais du Disque. The performance is actually by Gunter Wand and the Cologne Gurzenich orchestra. Another sloppy error that has even found its way into CD booklets. With just one of the two movements on each side of the disc, this is probably the shortest lp ever pressed under the once-noble Omega imprint. Licensed from Club Francias du Disque.
Reissued on CD by Testament. Not that it mattered actually since the ensemble was actually the Cento Soli Orchestra of Paris! Reissued on CD by Accord. The work has only five movements but, just like the Crown LP, whoever produced this record couldn't even get them in the correct order! From STT Available on Amazon Music.
The Sound of Sound OSL 74 A stereo sound spectacular featuring sounds of jets, boats, trains, sports cars, nature, the magic mechanical orchestra. Also originally? By now that's expected from these pseudo-Omega lps. When you listen to one of his songs you hear somebody that listened to classical music.
You hear the principles that he's using to make these beautiful melodies. There's something very rooted about his songs.
It came about for this record because I needed a really pretty, slow tune. This version comes from a piano-vocal version that sounds very true to the way Foster wrote it. Tim Crouch's strings complement the melody perfectly. There's a little bit of Pat Metheny in the touch, where I'm playing pretty; trying to have the prettiest tone possible.
It was at least 10 feet deep, most of it, and perfectly cool on a hot summer day. But, of course, that's when I started playing bluegrass. I have a big family tree that my cousin and others traced all the way back to the s. On one of the branches was the name Mollie Catherine Carter. Mollie was born in March of in Iowa, married my great-grandfather, and died in May , when my grandfather was only four years old.
According to my aunt, my grandfather was four in the kitchen with his mother when she fell down on the floor, said "Be a good boy, Lowell," and died. I wonder what that was like, and what havoc that wrought in his young life, and also the life of my great aunt, who was only eight. I took our kids to a family reunion in North Carolina a few years ago and found a lot of our family tree on that side lived there in the s.
The family tree is my connection to that southeastern North Carolina area. Also, I always loved listening to Stuart Duncan play with the Nashville Bluegrass Band and thought up this tune as a remembrance of the great music I've heard from them through the years. I would get tired of being an engineer and I'd want to play. We worked it up and have played it ever since.
It kind of evolved into what it is now. Whenever I've done a show and had her along, we end up doing that tune. I figured it was a no-brainer to put it on the record.
It's different from all the other stuff, too. He was dressed as a gunfighter on the cover, and that image fit those songs. I always loved Grady Martin's lead guitar work because it evoked hot Texas towns down near the border, cantinas and gunfights and riding the dusty trails of the West Texas countryside.
Crowe plays several tunes on it, as well as Bill Emerson and Vic Jordan. I've played along with those tunes hundreds of times in the past 30 years. His solo career was put on hold in when he rejoined the Clancy Brothers after brother Tom's death. After leaving the Clancy Brothers in , he toured with his nephew Robbie O'Connell and son Donal until , after which he resumed his solo career until the end of his life. He released a solo CD in and two videos, a concert special and a documentary on his life, in Tommy Makem died of lung cancer in August Liam Clancy died of pulmonary fibrosis in December Shanachie compact disc version only - alternate track order, excludes Peter Kagan and the Wind to fit the 80 minute CD storage limit.
