PADDY GLACKIN: GLACKIN                                             (1977)
Paddy Glackin: fiddle
Tom, Seamus & Kevin Glackin: fiddles
Micheal O'Suilleabhain: harpsichord

A truly magnificent album of traditional fiddle playing which Paddy recorded back in 1977 and which can be heard again--fans had been wishing for a CD reissue for years. Most of the tracks being unaccompanied, Paddy's clean and energetic playing style and his inventive variations can be savored and studied--I personally learned a lot from listening to this album when I was learning to play Irish fiddle. Still among my favorites after all these years are the track where Paddy plays "Julia Delaney" and "Mother's Delight" on the viola, and the one where he is joined by his father Tom and his brothers Seamus and Kevin for a powerful fiddle quartet on the great Donegal reel "The Gravel Walks," with appropriate doubling at the octave. A "must-have."
