The Best of the Chieftains [1992]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Well, sort of. The 50 minutes of music here represent the best of the group's three albums Chieftains 7, Chieftains 8, Boil the Breakfast Early recorded for Columbia Records during 1977, 1978, and 1979.

The lineup during this era was Paddy Moloney uillean pipes, tin whistle, Sean Keane fiddle, Mick Tubridy flute, tin whistle, concertina, Kevin Cunniffe bodhran, Martin Fay fiddle, Derek Bell harp, timpan, oboe, and Sean Potts tin whistle, with Matt Molloy flute replacing Mick Tubridy on Boil...

The material, a good distillation of the best of those three albums, all sounds fine and represents the group's virtuoso sound from this period.

    Two CD's, Two Reviews

    The first CD is excellent. Traditional Celtic music (and culture) has been a particular favorite of mine for many years. There are none better than The Chieftans especially with their earlier material. The first CD captures some of this however some of the remakes and remastering loses some of the more gritty original flavor. Not a complaint, really, still top notch old school Irish with all the joy and pain; the humor and whimsey that goes with it. None better.
    The second CD... I could have lived without in the two-fer set. I have actually only listened to it once. Mostly my own personal taste. I don't care for it when they stray from the Irish traditional roots and do some sort of blend with non-Irish artists. Not my cup of tea.
