The Thing Itself

Claddagh Records CCF36CD. After O’Loughlin turned up on Donnelly’s solo debut and Donnelly turned up on O’Loughlin and Browne’s Touch Me If You Dare, it was only a matter of time before Donnelly and O’Loughlin would team up for a (Browne-produced!) duet album. Beautiful, instinctive stuff!

I really want to get this CD, which will compete with Catherine and John McEvoy’s duet album this year. I’ve been listening to some sample clips from the recording on Claddagh Records website, and they sound really gorgeous.

Still sounds fresh

I accidentally hit the first track of this while fiddling around in my itunes. It sounded great, and I was reminded wanted wonderfully understated recording this is. I’ve been listening to it a lot lately.
