Clannad started out like many Irish traditional folk bands. Some of their early material for Gael-Linn Records could have been mistaken for The Chieftains or other traditionalists. However, their signing to RCA Records, and their 1982 hit "Theme From Harry's Game," catapulted them to the top of the UK pop charts. Most importantly, Clannad was one of the first Irish bands to delve into ambient music.
On GREATEST HITS, we hear some of Clannad's best-loved songs, including the previously mentioned "Theme from Harry's Game." This song, written for a popular BBC television program, is probably Clannad's most moving, haunting composition. The choir-like vocals and the huge reverb transport the listener into verdant harmonic pastures. Other songs, such as "Something to Believe In," are as pop as pop gets, but their arrangement of the traditional tune "The Fairy Queen" harks back to Clannad's original folk roots.
