This album is a compilation CD which introduces the new listener to the breadth and depth of Poitín's repertoire over it's first ten years. It takes us on a magical journey from the raw energy of a highly spirited Irish session to the contemplative and haunting moods of a moonlit night by a nameless shore. It is an appreciation of the music of Poitín, a band which has been distilling and maturing since the mid-nineties til now; not only a journey through different Celtic genres, but a journey reflecting the development of the band over the years-a journey of discovery, experimentation, exuberance. The album takes us from the raw, unfiltered energy of the Congress Reel to the shores of Brittany via the haunting Lover's Ghost, the scintillating Saxet and the boldly experimental remixes by DSPI. Here is a chronological documentation of a band which over the years has captivated and exhilarated audiences from Bordeaux to Warsaw and from Prague to Turin. Here is just a taste of what Poitín have achieved over the last decade, and we're sure you will enjoy it. Slainte!
