This obscured Irish electric folk rock band has released two excellent albums in 1977 and 1979 on WHM Records and both are now quite sought after in the collectors market. Their first album is full of cover versions of major artists and famous traditional numbers such as "Rick Rack" (Gerry Rafferty), "After The Goldrush" (Neil Young), "That's No Way To Say Goodbye" (Leonard Cohen) and "In A Song" (Jim Croce). It indeed is a beautiful album and truly worth exploring the talented folk bands of the mid/late 70s. Nina Szifris, the band's lead singer is truly a gem. A must for the fans of Fairport Convention, Caedmon, Pentangle and Mellow Candle.
