Album Description
Available in:
"Cold Blow and the Rainy Night" is the third album by the Irish folk group Planxty ,It was released in 1974 on the Polydor label and takes its title from the third song on the album, Cold Blow and the Rainy Night.
Cold Blow and the Rainy Night was the final Planxty recording before the band's members split off to form the Bothy Band, Moving Hearts, and De Dannan . "You can hear the future of Celtic music being charted on this record. Elements that are now commonplace, like mixing traditional uilleann pipes and fiddles with modern guitars, bouzoukis, and mandolins; performing tunes from other cultures; and making medleys from dance tunes and songs; were all popularized by Planxty in its formative years. The group reformed a few years later, but they were never able to recapture the magic of their early years". Michael Simmons
