After a break of 23 years, Planxty came together this year for a series of concerts in January and February. I was at the opening night, and the atmosphere was raw with expectation. What ensued was a triumph of music, memories and nostalgia. Veteran Planxty fans weren't disappointed, and a substantial proportion of the audience, who weren't even born when Planxty last played, had their eyes opened.
It was a peg to hang a memory on, and the experience was captured on tape. You can enjoy it now on CD and DVD (multi-region). The emphasis is on well-tried favourites from long ago (after all that was what the shows were about).
It''s great music and it proves that these lads are only in their prime. Sean O Duibhir is the hidden track on the CD.
While CD and DVD are very close in price, the DVD has the visual content (naturally), plus five extra musical pieces and a documentary.
