‘Gaodhal’s Vision’ 40th Anniversary Edition celebrates the 1977 album release of ‘Gaodhal’s Vision’ by Celtic fusion violinist Joe O’Donnell. The release date is July 14th.
The original album was widely acclaimed and made a lasting impression. It still commands affection and respect today. It blended haunting Celtic melodies, lush orchestrations, searing rock feels and Indian musical influences. The finest musicians of the day played on the album. This includes the guitar legend Rory Gallagher, with whom Joe enjoyed a warm musical friendship.
The 40th Anniversary Edition offers a re-mix of the original album with instrumental enhancements and additional passages. Rory Gallagher’s presence is as vibrant as ever, perhaps even more so with the benefits of today’s technology! There is also a full-length live DVD of the recent performances of ‘Gaodhal’s Vision’ at the Coventry Belgrade Theatre, featuring additional musicians, Irish and Indian dancers, narration and visuals.
Features to look out for:
- some tracks are now longer than on the original vinyl
- extended and tonally improved lead guitar by Rory (electric and acoustic)
- enriched orchestral passages
- contributions by Joe’s powerful Coventry band Shkayla and other guest musicians
There is also a fine illustrated souvenir insert with insights into the album and some stunning images relating to the legend of the Milesian people. Some say their migration from Egypt to Éire gave rise to the people we now call the Celts.
