The first album, the second one is uploading right now. I don't know if anyone aside from Don is interested in listening to it. I came across Planxty the same way I came across The Dubliners, Chieftains, Ewan Maccoll and The Clancy Brothers....all thanks to the Pogues

There's a Pogues track called Planxty Noel Hill and I was always curious about the name of the song then I read an interview with Planxty man Christy Moore in MOJO and that set me off on the hunt.

They're all talented musicians and it's good old Irish music, the first album kicks off with their version of one of my favorite Irish standards "The Raggle Taggle Gypsy"

It is, are you down with Christy Moore?

I know you and the missus are down with the Clancy Brothers, Laurie bought me Songs of Rebellion when I was in PDX
