Offered for sale is a copy of Clannad’s 1985 LP, Macalla, with the shrinkwrap intact and including a guest vocal by Bono of U2.
About this copy: The copy offered for sale has a M- record that clearly has seen little play. The cover is still in the shrinkwrap and still has the original hype sticker promoting Bono’s guest appearance. There is a saw mark in the lower right hand corner of the cover.
Background: AllMusic.com rates Macalla at 4 1/2 stars:
1985’s Macalla is one of Clannad’s strongest albums. The songs are mainly mid-tempo or slower, and combine the poignant beauty of Irish balladry with the immediacy of a rock band line-up. Traditional Irish instruments come and go, along with touches of sax and on “In a Lifetime,” soulful guest vocals by fellow Irishman Bono, of U2. Macalla is a well-rounded album of melodic folk pop, infused with that beautiful warm sadness that seems to pervade Irish music and culture.
