Planxty - The Well Below The Valley The Well Below The Valley
Folk Used - LP 2383 232 Polydor
1973 UK Heavy Vinyl Red Label Original Featuring Christy Moore. Looks Glossy, Unplayed. Tiny Cut Corner And Very Small Chew Mark At Top Of Spine. “Planxty Begins Its Remarkable Sophomore Release The Well Below The Valley With The Pipe-Led "Cunla," An Engaging Round Sung By Founder Christy Moore. Impeccably Played Dance Tunes, Soulful Laments, And Rollicking Narratives Follow, Allowing Listeners Access To The Full Breadth Of The Group's Many Talents. The Record's Centerpiece Is The Eerie Title Track, A Taut, Mid-Tempo Dirge That's Loosely Based On The Story Of Jesus At The Well. Though Traditional, The Tune's Incestuous Overtones And Dark Imagery Have Limited Its Appeal To Older Generations Of Singers — Most Refuse To Sing It — And Defined It As The Forbidden Fruit Of Celtic Music. Andy Irvine Offers Up Two Of His Finest Ballads, The Mournful Wartime Love Letter "As I Roved Out" And The Bittersweet "Time Will Cure Me," Proving Once Again That His Deeply Expressive Voice Is Unmatched Within The Genre. The Well Below The Valley Is Everything A Collection Of Traditional Music Should Be. With Its Warm And Simple Production And Fine Performances, It Remains A Classic That Should Have Little Problem Surviving The Ages.” James Christopher Monger, AMG.... more details

Planxty - Cold Blow And The Rainy Night Cold Blow And The Rainy Night
Folk New - LP 79011 Shanachie
Sealed 1979 First U.S. Pressing. Recorded In 1974. “Irish Stalwarts Planxty Begin Cold Blow And The Rainy Night -- Their Third Record For Shanachie -- With A Rousing Version Of The Scottish Battlefield Classic "Johnnie Cope." It's A Fitting Opening To A Record That Essentially Rounded Out Their Recording Heyday As The Members Splintered Off To Form Equally Influential Celtic Acts Like The Bothy Band, Moving Hearts, And De Danann. Co-Founder Dónal Lunny, Despite Contributing Instrumentally To A Few Tracks And Taking A Seat In The Production Chair, Left The Group, Allowing Newest Member Johnny Moynihan To Take Over Bouzouki And -- Along With Andy Irvine And Christy Moore -- Vocal Duties. The Title Track Is One Of The Finest Of Their Career, Utilizing Liam O'Flynn's Expert Uillean Pipes And The Band's Peerless Harmonizing To A Tee. Moore's Gorgeous "Lakes Of Pontchartrain" And Irvine's Moving Closer, "Green Fields Of Canada," Showcase The Group's Timeless Mastery Of Balladry, A Style That Would Greatly Inform Their Later Solo Works. Cold Blow And The Rainy Night, Along With The Well Below The Valley, And Their Legendary Debut, Are Essential Listening For Those In Love With, Or Merely Intrigued With, The Genre.” James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide.... more details
