Overview

A classic for lovers of good and heartfelt music played with joy. This has Paddy Moloney and the Chieftains combining forces with one of the best assemblages of country musicians put together. A diverse group it definitely is, stretching from Ricky Skaggs to Don Williams to Colin James running into Willie Nelson and Chet Atkins and so forth in a cornucopia of audio delight. From the opening joy of "Happy to Meet," tcrossing the musical streets to "Heartbreak Hotel," to the romping joy shown by the players in "Cotton-Eyed Joe" and "Cunla," this CD is a never-ending country grab-bag of musical mastery. The players seem to be a unit that has been been down the long hard road of wire fenced stages in cheap bars together honing its skills, which arrive at fruition here.

Chieftans and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with some of the very best artists in country and bluegrass. Willy Nelson, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Don Williams, ect. ect. ect... A classic. These sessions are a hoot! Impossible to listen to and not smile. Better order two cause you'll wear out the first one out!

This CD is good but, as my heading indicates, not up to the level of the Plank Road CDs. It seems more schizophrenic than those sets and lacks some of their spark. You might want to check out The Crossing by Tim O'Brien for a good Celtic bluegrass session.
