The Chieftains Live

In the wake of the success of ‘Bonaparte’s Retreat’, The Chieftians returned to America and Canada in December of 1976 to tour. The concerts in the Symphony Hall in Boston and the Massey Hall in Toronto were recorded for this live album, although because of intereference with the recording equipment in Boston, only one track from the Symphony Hall was used, the balance made up with the Toronto performance. It gives a great taste of the energy and joviality of a Chieftains’ performance.
