In the vast flood of Celto-plastic now washing over the earth, this is Noah's Ark. At least two of everything you need are found somewhere on this two-disc set. Ballads, reels, jigs, strathspeys, airs, set dances, slip jigs, marches, Irish, Scottish, Breton, Galician, Canadian, whatever. It's all here and played by the world's finest, from grizzled old-timers (fiddler Seamus Ennis and squeeze-boxer Joe Burke) to frisky young turks (fiddle-babe Eileen Ivers and concertina wonderboy John Williams) to bands (Bothies, Altan, Kornog) to soloists (Dick Gaughan, Jerry O'Sullivan,) to firm traditionalists (Eugene O'Donnell, Paddy O'Brien & Seamus Connolly) to rule-bending rockers (Capercaillie, Wolfestone). THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION captures the entire Celtic spectrum, making it an ideal introduction for newcomers and a treasure-box for seasoned thistle & shamrock-heads. Buy a few. Keep 'em in your first-aid kit, your car trunk, the fallout shelter. Put one away with the family jewels for the grandchildren. You won't be sorry.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Owens
Green Linnet 20th Anniversary Collection is a double-disc collection featuring 38 tracks from the Celtic music insitution. Every one of the label's biggest artists -- including Silly Wizard, Altan, Wolfstone, the Bothy Band, John Williams, Tannahill Weavers -- is on the collection, giving a good representation of not only the label, but the state of Celtic music of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. It's an excellent retrospective.
