Planxty – Planxty

Ireland, 1973, Irish folk

This album follows a natural progression of emotions throughout a typical drinking session, from boisterousness to defiance, even to getting political. Two thirds of this album is traditional folk tunes sung beautifully, with all the pathos Irishmen can muster.

The great gaels are of Ireland are the men whom God made mad
For all their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad
