Comments: Poitín say: 'It was the first time in a studio for most of us, and we were a bit apprehensive, but it didn’t take long for us to get to like the experience. The recording took three weekends, and the mixing a further two. Most of the instrumental tunes we recorded in one take, so if somebody messed up, we had to start again from the beginning- not a pleasant task! Some tracks went easier than others. For example, Vladar we got in one take and Laird of Cockpen in two. But on the other hand, Gloomy Winter’s Noo Awa’ must have taken about twenty attempts. Tyna had to drink gallons of some horrible throat gargle, but in the end I hope you’ll agree it was worth it!'

The result is a vary varied and colourful collection of tunes, as is the band's live set. Each singer has two or three songs, there are slow, dreamy compositions on the harp by Turlough O’Carolan, and fast, rollicking Irish sets. From the very first few bars you are captivated by the massive, full sound and boundless energy and enthusiasm which is a trademark of the band's live shows. Irish musical puritanism was not overly loved by their two whistlers at the time, but we all like a nice arrangement, and the gutsy performance of Jeremy on vocals and his energy and joy which he contributes. To save pennies, Jeremy offered to make by hand each of the CD booklets, and so the first hundred or so copies the band sold really were original. (un)fortunately the copies you'll purchase through sites such as CDBaby are all professionally printed nowadays, but back in 2000 times were different...
