The debut album by the Chieftains, recorded when they were still a semi-professional outfit, is more restrained than their subsequent efforts. The opening number introduces each of the bandmembers, Paddy Moloney and Sean Potts on pipes, followed by Michael Tubridy on flute and David Fallon on bodhran, Martin Fay on the fiddle, and then Tubridy on the concertina. The group would later acquire what can only be called a more soulful approach, but the playing here was a revelation at the time, if only for its stripped-down authenticity.

Eric Andersen - Blue River / Stages: The Lost Album (2014)
EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 01:44:34 | 682 MB
Genre: Folk-Rock | Label: BGO Records | Catalog: BGOCD 1159

This 2014 BGO two-fer pairs 1972's Blue River and Stages: The Lost Album, largely recorded in 1972 but released in 1991. It's a nice pairing, containing Andersen's acclaimed Columbia debut and the record he cut for the label immediately afterward, a record the label didn't release until two decades later. Andersen made good records before and good records after, but these two albums are arguably his peak and it's nice to have them together on a two-fer.

The Chieftains – The Chieftains 5
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Polydor/2310426 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Irish-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Folk music
The fifth album by the Chieftains was also their best, and their first one to cross over, at least in America — where it was originally issued by the Island label — to progressive rock audiences.
Paul Brady – Welcome Here Kind Stranger (1978) Mulligan/LUN 024 – Original IR Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Paul Brady – Welcome Here Kind Stranger
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Mulligan/LUN 024 | Released: 1978 | Genre: Irish-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Folk music
Brady’s first solo album, Welcome Here Kind Stranger is his second (and final) folk recording prior to his embarking on a successful, long-term foray into the realm of mainstream rock. Its title is a phrase taken from one of the album’s songs: “The Lakes of Pontchartrain”. The album was initially released (vinyl and cassette) on Dónal Lunny’s Mulligan label (LUN024) in 1978 and was voted “Folk Album of the Year” by Melody Maker magazine. The album was never officially released on CD due to a breakdown in the relationship between Brady and the Mulligan label and remained out of print for many years, until finally re-mastered and released in 2009 on Brady’s own label, PeeBee Music.
