Raggle Taggle Gypsy going seamlessly into Tabhair Dom Do Lamh was the first track on a cheap folk compilation album I bought and it was that track that persuaded me to love Irish music and start playing it myself. The sheer electricity and lack of artifice in that track blew me away, and still do every time I hear it! There was also a performance of it on Christy's earlier album Prosperous but the production and sound were much better on the Planxty album.
