Offered for sale is an original Irish pressing of Clannad’s 1983 LP, Magical Ring, on the Tara label.
Magical Ring is one of Clannad’s more highly regarded albums, receiving 4 1/2 stars from users at AllMusic.com:
The best Clannad record is now available again. This exceptional album shows to great advantage the many sides of this venerable Irish group, and features the gorgeous choral feast of “Theme from Harry’s Game,” one of their “hits.” Recorded in 1983, Magical Ring includes a half-dozen originals and four traditional tunes, sung in the uniquely majestic and timeless manner of Clannad’s lead vocalist, Maire Ni Bhraonain. Slow, yearning pieces alternate with lively folk-inspired ballads, some laced effectively with rock elements, while the hauntingly mesmerizing “Newgrange” is filled with strumming guitars and a low bass-drum rhythm that springs open with the many colors of the rainbow. Magical Ring is bound to become a personal favorite for many.
The copy offered for sale is an original pressing on the Irish Tara label. The disc, pressed on virgin vinyl, is M-, and the cover is M- and retains its original shrink wrap.
