“Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

According to a post on the "Mudcat Cafe" website, plus I heard this from a friend in Denmark [ thanks, Mich ] :

"A Planxty collection, "Between The Jigs & The Reels" - A Retrospective CD/DVD will be released tomorrow, October 28, 2016. Compiled and chosen by the band, it comes with a DVD featuring over two hours of previously unreleased performances from the RTÉ Archives".

No new material then, but still, it’s "Planxty"………………………., and Christmas is coming up :)

It’d be nice if the lads got a few pound for it but they won’t… Phil Coulter…what a bollocks.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

What about Phil Coulter?

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

Yes but I would presume that the Band will profit from the Live Recordings on the DVD as these would not be owned by Phil Coulter or Seanchai records.

All 4 of the band members themselves were directly involved in putting this release together so I’m sure they would not be doing this if it was going to benefit some one else.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

I certainly hope so… Jaysus I came into this thread after a few jars last night and was just bitter all over the place. Sorry for shite-ing in the porridge boys. Back to the good times :)

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

@ Eimead: LOL, Jars and t’internet don’t mix! I’ve been hauled over the coals before now by Jeremy for injudicious posting! Let’s hope he doesn’t descend on you from a great height!
Lots of the tunes (and songs) that are floating around in my head all can be traced back to Planxty. I lived in Dublin in the early seventies, but I was a young Chef, living in that twilight zone inhabitated by cooks, chefs, nurses, evil clowns etc., and I never got to a concert anywhere! I was second chef in a hotel on the South side, my wife Kate was Night Manageress in Jonathan’s Restaurant on Grafton Street, possibly where Captain America’s is now located. We were off together every second Sunday (used to leave notes for each other in our flat in Rathfarnham) and when we had time off together we headed for Maher’s on Moore Street, Slattery’s on Capel Street and O’Donoghue’s on Merrion Row, where the Dubliners lived, to suck up the crack (craic? nasty made-up word!) and listen the happy sounds. When we had a rare full day off together, we went out to Dalkey, down to Bulloch Harbour, hired a motor boat, and went fishing in Dalkey Sound/Dublin Bay. The only sight-seeing we did was a guided tour around Dublin Castle and a bus tour to Glendalough one Good Friday. Never did get to go sight seeing in Dublin until about 2 years ago. I’m a pensioner now, so I have an All Ireland free travel pass.
I hadn’t heard about Planxty’s retrospective album until today, but I thought to meself, "Have to get that!" so I looked it up on Google and ended up on Amazon, down amongst the "X no. from other dealers" link and my copy is ordered up, should be here next week, for £10.19
Also coming, a stylus for my record deck, sitting under my desktop, neglected for years, @ £8.70
Why buy a stylus? I have both albums recorded in Mark’s Bar, Dundalk in the 60s. On the first "Fleadh Night in Mark’s Bar" there is a march called "Jackets Green" which isn’t anywhere to be found online. Before anyone starts putting up posts to "Jackets Green" in the tunes section here, that’s not it. The tune on here is "McAlpines Fusiliers" As I said, not to be found online, so I’m resurrecting my vinyl collection for the sake of learning one tune. It’ll be nice to hear Kate’s albums of Charlie Parker and all that stuff too.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

This is very interesting! I’m going to buy it for sure.

Awesome to have videos of these iconic tracks. For me the best part will be seeing my "heroes" Matt and Liam in action.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

I like Alexanders comment re ‘craic’.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

Received my copy last week, and fans will not be disappointed; some great stuff here.

My only (minor) complaint is that the DVD, although advertised as "region free", will not play in my U.S. Blu-ray player. It will however play in my windows 7 PC.

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

Classic stuff - no home should be without one. Great to have the live performances on DVD, although Richard D Cook might be a bit disappointed like myself in that Matt Molloy doesn’t appear in any of the concerts [ unless I missed him - I haven’t watched all of the clips yet ]. I think we might use the CD as the basis for our own "Planxty Retrospective" programme on our radio programme next week - watch this space. Any requests ?

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

Yup - my DVD is scrambled on a new-ish but not Blu-Ray region 1 player. Plays on Windows, and ripped, the .VOB files look fine too, but gee, would rather watch it on my big TV. Very disappointed. :(

Re: “Planxty” - new release, tomorrow….

The DVD I got says it’s encoded as region 0 , which should be unrestricted for any region.
My PC asked if I wanted to switch, but I didn’t want to mess about as that’s set to region 1 which can be useful. The blue-ray player just played it straight off, but that’s a multi-region one so should play anything.
