The Chieftains – The Chieftains (1964) Island Records/ILPS 9364 – US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

The Chieftains – The Chieftains
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz
Label: Island Records/ILPS 9364 | Released: 1964 | US Issue: 1976 | Genre: Irish-Folk

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.

Mastered At A&M Mastering Studios By Bernie Grundman
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BSK 3113 | Release: 1976 | This Issue: Unknown | Genre: Country-Rock

James Taylor had scored eight Top 40 hits by the fall of 1976 when Warner Brothers marked the end of his contract with this compilation. One of those hits, the Top Ten gold single “Mockingbird,” a duet with his wife Carly Simon, was on Elektra Records, part of the Warner family of labels and presumably available, but it was left off.

Appearing "To France"
Not a masterpiece by any means but I do find "Discovery" underrated 'cause of some pure magical moments.

As Nice As Mother Makes It
After two very robust but patchy albums the Nice adopted a slightly different approach to their third by exploiting a half live/half studio hybrid. They felt that this (on the advice of their new manager Tony Stratton-Smith) would showcase the 'best of both worlds' as the studio precedents were not felt to do justice to their live performances.

Label: Philips/6303 011 | Release: 1971 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
Although admittedly a posthumous release, I was very surprised at the rather dismissive tenor of many of the reviews of this album to date. Hopefully this record will be reappraised soon as being a release worthy of anyone's consideration as I feel it does enhance an already rich legacy left behind by this very fine and innovative band. (So what if Charisma wanted to ride the slipstream of the lucrative ELP juggernaut?)

Label: Immediate/Z12 52020 | Release: 1968 | This Issue: 1969 | Genre: Symphonic-Rock

Excellent addition to any prog-rock music collection.
It is not possible to overestimate the Nice's importance to Progressive Rock. In their moment, they were prog and if the eye-opening debut Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack didn't show that, this dazzling follow-up did. Sure they're so old and dated you'd never put them on unless alone in the house.
