The legendary Donegal fiddle player captured 22 years ago on field recordings. This is a must-have for Donegal music fans. Although the quality of the recordings may not be quite as good as what could be achieved in a modern recording studio, the slightly muffled sound actually gives the recordings a certain je-ne-sais-quoi, a bit like the surface noise of 78s, which can transport you back in time. The old-fashioned guitar accompaniments contribute to that perception as well. O'Donnell's playing is crisp and clean on a combination of Donegal repertoire and tunes from other sources, Sligo classics and Reavy compositions. The notes are entirely in Gaelic, so grab your "foclo/ir."
