GUEST,Den Help: why did Planxty disband? (22) RE: Help: why did Planxty disband? 15 Feb 00

Moving Hearts had Christy Moore and Donal Lunny from Planxty. Thats pretty well the only connection between the two bands that I know. As far as Norman Blake not getting credit for his song which can be heard on the, "The woman I loved so well," album. I'm going from memory here as I am at work. I might look it up and post the direct quote later. But the liner notes say something about Christy Moore learning the song from Noel Shine and that it was written by Norman Blake. As far as royalties I can't say. I dont think that had anything to do with the demise of Planxty, as Christy Moore has had more serious death threats made against him I feel it would take more than that to make him run. I think that musically they began to go in different directions but even after the break up of the band they still guested on each other's solo projects. Den
