Planxty
The Planxty Collection
Shanachie

By Tom Pryor

Published September 9, 2005

Boasting the talent of Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Liam O'Flynn and Andy Irvine, the original, early '70s lineup of Planxty was nothing short of a traditional Irish supergroup. Alongside contemporaries like the Bothy Band, the group incorporated new sounds and ideas into Irish music, inaugurating a new era. Their first-rate songwriting set new standards that left the "come-all-ye's" of previous generations in the dust. Though the original band was plagued by a constant erosion of original members until they disbanded in 1981, this collection selects cuts from their three groundbreaking 1970s albums, and there's not a dud in the lot.
