Tir Na Nog - A Tear And A Smile / Strong In The Sun (remastered) (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-BGOCD 653
"Tir Na Nog's second and third records for Chrysalis, dating from 1972 and 1973.
These two albums are truly underrated things of utter beauty. Any fans of Donovan, Fairport Convention, Bert Jansch, Pentangle, Trees, Incredible String Band, etc etc would do very well to check these guys out.
This is largely acoustic Celtic-influenced folk music. A TEAR AND A SMILE leans heavier on acoustic instrumentation, while STRONG IN THE SUN adds a bit of electricity, courtesy of Matthew Fisher (who produced STRONG IN THE SUN around the same time as he was twiddling the knobs for Robin Trower's BRIDGE OF SIGHS). Fisher also contributed piano and organ to STRONG IN THE SUN.
Additionally, SITS features the best-ever Nick Drake cover in "Free Ride" (called simply "Ride" on PINK MOON), which opened the original album."
