Apparently, Planxty opened with this in Cork City Hall in 1972.

Nope. I am not THAT old.
But I have almost all their albums.

My father had "The Well Below The Valley" on tape, only when listening to it as an adult did I learn to appreciate it properly.

I shared a house with a Cork lad in Galway, (happens to be a fisherman now) who loved Planxty. When it was his turn to put on a record (such was the entertainment at the time) it was always Planxty. The rest of us would be getting a bit sick of it as we'd be more into playing Floyd, Floyd, Floyd and then some Floyd but that album TWBTV was a cracker. I listen to it occasionally but I've never really found any other Planxty album to compare to it.




Keep lashing up the songs there M8s, educate me.



Nice calls there C32, fairplay.

The best way to celebrate a musicians transcendence from the physical realm is to play his/her music.

REALLY sad news.

An absolute legend of a man.

I'm glad I got the opportunity to see Planxty.

RIP

I like the inter play between Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine too, I think the latter gigs in Cork occasionally.
