Babes In The Wood
Used - LP - 040
Beautiful 1991 Irish Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. “Babes In The Wood Is Mary Black's Finest, Most Consistently Pleasing Album. There Is No Filler Here, And Her Song Selection, Culled From New Songwriters Such As Noel Brazil And Classic Folkies Such As Richard Thompson, Is Impeccable. The Acoustic Arrangements (Including Guitar, Piano, Mandolin, Dobro, And Accordion) Are Carried Out By Her Longtime Backing Musicians, Although The Music Has A Decidedly More Pop Than Celtic Flavor On This Album. As With Most Of Her Releases, There Are Many Romantic Ballads Sung With A Subtly That Adds Emotional Weight To Every Song. The Main Difference On This Album Is An Omnipresent Religious Tone, Whether It's Overt In The Gospel Opener "Still Believing" Or Just Below The Surface In Songs Such As "The Golden Mile." Even A Few Of The Love Songs Refer To Having Faith That Love Will Come Around Again After Heartbreak ("Just Around The Corner"). However, The Album Is Peppered With Playful, Upbeat Tunes That Propel The Album Forward To The Final Song, A Wonderful Cover Of Joni Mitchell's "Urge For Going." A Great Introduction To The Music Of Mary Black, And A Must-Own For Fans.” Vik Lyengar, All Music. more

By The Time It Gets Dark
New - LP - DARA 027
Sealed 2017 180gm Limited Edition Gatefold Reissue. Irish Folk Singer Mary Black Writes About The Reissue Of Her 1987 Album Classic By The Time It Gets Dark, Saying "As It's Always Been One Of My Favorite Albums I Felt That It Deserved To Be Revisited To Celebrate Its 30th Anniversary. With That In Mind We Sent The Old 24-Track Tapes To Be Baked (a Process To Preserve Them) Allowing Us To Do A Complete Remix And Remaster The Album. We Enlisted The Services Of My Great Friend And Sound Engineer Billy Robinson To Do The Job And I'm Delighted With The Outcome — It Sounds Great, Even If I Say So Myself! We Added A Few Bits Where Needed And I'm Happy To See It Being Released On Vinyl Again." Mary's Breakthrough Album From 1987 Has Been Remixed And Remastered And Repackaged For It's 30th Anniversary. The Album That Brought Us "Katie," "Just Once In A Very Blue Moon," "By The Time It Gets Dark," "Schooldays Over" And Much More Is Back And Better Than Ever! more

Speaking With The Angel
Audiophile - LP - PPAN 014
Sealed 2011 Limited Edition 180gm HQ Original Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. On This, Her Ninth Album, Mary Black Has Gone Back To Her Roots: It Is More Acoustic Than The Previous Album Shine.

Besides These More Slow-Paced Songs, The Album Also Contains More Up-Tempo Songs, Like "Message Of Love" And "Big Trip To Portland". This Is Certainly One Of Her Best Albums, With Some Delicate Songs Performed By Mary Black As Only She Can Do It. more
Stories From The Steeples
Audiophile - LP - PPAN 015
Sealed 2011 180gm Limited Edition Gatefold Original. “Despite Its Title And Front Cover Art, Stories From The Steeples, Mary Black's First Recording In Six Years, Is Not A Collection Of Hymns. It Is Titled For The Dublin Studio Where It Was Recorded. These 12 New Selections Are, In Typical Black Form, An Impeccable Mix Of Traditional-Sounding And Contemporary Material. There Is An Enormous List Of Contributing Players On These Sessions, But The Constants Are Guitarist Bill Shanley, Keyboardist And Accordionist Pat Crowley, Double Bassist Nick Scott, And Fiddler Matt McGranahan. The Album's Opening Cut, "Marguerite And The Gambler," Written By Ricky Lynch, Is Certainly Informed By The Spirit Of Bob Dylan's "Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts" (Though Dylan's Song Was Certainly Informed By Outlaw Tales Of The American South That Came From Centuries-Old Celtic Balladry In The First Place, So There You Go). It Contains A Stellar Arrangement That Highlights Piano, Mandolin, And McGranahan's Lonesome Fiddle. Three Duets Are Strategically Placed In This Set. “Walking With My Love,” An Easy Shuffler, Is Sung With Countryman And Irish Music Legend Finbar Furey, Who Also Plays Banjo On It. "Lighthouse Light" Sounds Like It Could Have Come From Ireland In The Early 1960s (And Maybe Its Melody Originally Did), But It Was Actually Written By The Boston-Based Irish Songwriter Ry Cavanaugh; It Features Black Singing With The Incomparable Janis Ian. The Real Surprise Though, Is The Album's First Single, "Mountains To The Sea," Written By Australians Shane Howard And Neil Murray. Walking The Line Between Celtic, Contemporary Folk, And Pop, Black Is Joined By Countrywoman And Chart-Topping Rock & Roll Singer Imelda May. Each Woman Does What She Does Best -- May Doesn't Rein Herself In, Black Doesn't Try To Rock It Up. Their Voices, Phrasing, And Timbres Complement One Another Beautifully, Weaving Together Seamlessly On The Refrain. Stories From The Steeples Is A Welcome Return For One Of Contemporary Folk Music's Finest Voices And Most Original Stylists; It Is Also A Stand-Out Album In Black's Solo Catalog.” Thom Jurek, AMG. more
The Holy Ground
Used Import - GRALP 011
1993 UK pressing. Mary Black's "The Holy Ground" is a high water mark album that showcases the Irish singer's remarkable vocal abilities and her exceptional ability to interpret traditional Irish folk music. The record is beautifully produced, with lush instrumentation that perfectly complements Black's voice. The songs on "The Holy Ground" are largely drawn from the traditional Irish canon, but Black infuses them with a modern sensibility that makes them feel both timeless and contemporary. From the haunting balladry of "Lay Down Your Burden" to the rollicking energy of "The Holy Ground," Black takes the listener on a journey through the rich cultural heritage of Ireland. But what really sets this album apart is the depth of emotion that Black brings to each performance. Whether she's singing about love, loss, or the struggles of everyday life, she imbues each song with a raw, authentic feeling that is impossible to ignore. Mary Black's incredible talent as a singer and interpreter of traditional music make this a worthwhile venture. more
