ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is a compilation CD which introduces the new listener to the breadth and depth of Poitín's repertoire over its 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!

Jiggery Pokery -- Fantastic Music!
Jiggery Pokery is a wonderfully eclectic compilation, with stunning musicianship! In fact, this CD has been playing non-stop on my player since I first received it! If you love traditional Celtic music performed by a band that's not afraid to take a fresh, new (sometimes non-traditional) approach, I guarantee you will love this CD!

Fantastic Music!
'Jigger Pokery' is a wonderfully eclectic compilation, performed with stunning musicianship! My favorite cuts? Too numerous to choose just one! In brief, this CD has been my almost constant daily soundtrack since I first downloaded it. If you love traditional Celtic music performed by a fantastic band that’s not afraid to sometimes take a less than ‘traditional’ instrumental approach, I can guarantee that you will love this CD!

Steve

Well rounded cd!
This is a cool cd! I have to agree with the album notes in that there is a lot ot listen to here; fun rollickin' pub songs, beautiful melodies and vocal stylings, and by the end one is involved in a seemingly Depech Mode-ish/ rockin' drums/ performance anthem kinda thing! It's really cool, I recommend it & will look into more from this Artist. You should, too....

Unexpected
Unexpected. That’s probably the best way to describe this CD in one word. The first track leads you to believe it may be a bunch of great Irish dance music played expertly…but this is not the case. This CD goes on to do many different things throughout–and it is full of surprises. Thankfully the arrangement is done quite well so instead of being disjointed, there is a flow to it all.

Most of the songs here in the middle of the CD give a full folk feel which is well-honed. Tracks such as “A Bucket Full of Mountain Dew” and “Springtime Frolics” are delightful, and tracks like “Lover’s Ghost” and “Carolan’s Ramble to Cashell” give the listener more of the typical fare one might expect from a band with this type of style. But then… once again… things shift a bit.

As you get to the last of this, there’s a wild remix of “Step it Out” on track 14, and it isn’t the only one on the album. The nice part is that these remixes are all grouped at the end, so they don’t confuse the listener part of the way through. Instead they save this unique take on these tunes for later. It was actually kind of a neat way to end the CD, and, as I said before–unexpected.
