3CD compilation that takes a deep dive into a much overlooked but key sub-genre of 1960s-1970s Rock. The first comprehensive overview of this important stylistic off-shoot.Rock music infused with traditional Celtic sounds began to emerge in Ireland in the late 1960s/early 1970s with the likes of Taste, Granny's Intentions, Skid Row and Thin Lizzy all laying down their markers. But this musical development was certainly not restricted to the Emerald Isle as bands from other countries with Celtic heritage also began to merge their own Celtic roots music with rock. Tracks included here by acts from Wales such as Huw Jones, Y Nhw, Heather Jones and Edward H Dafis, as well as those from Scotland such as Bert Jansch, John Martyn, Al Stewart and Runrig, show that this was no local development but a growing international sound. There was also a significant swell of acts having the same idea in France as can be evidenced by the output included on this set of French artists such as Dan Ar Braz, Kyaldan, Namnètes and Alain Samson. Added to this are the British Rock and Folk Rock bands utilising Celtic forms and sounds such as Fairport Convention, Steeleye Span, Pentangle, East Of Eden, Wishbone Ash, Faces and Trees, all of whom feature here, to give the full picture of one of the most interesting in original strands of rock.
