Topped Charts In Ireland For Six Weeks!

Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the July 2006 Issue of Stereophile! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

Celtic musician Mary Black is most popular in Ireland. As a female vocalist she has fans' respect from modern and traditional music with her uncanny knack for unveiling the true meaning of a song. Babes In the Wood topped the charts of Ireland in 1991 for six weeks.

This is a very feminine record, gentle and thoughtful.

"Black is set to conquer a new world." - Rolling Stone.

"It's one time that separates her from international stardom." - The New York Post.

"She connected emotionally with her material practically on a molecular level...a staggering talent, a breathtaking vocalist who hardly fits any conventional mold..." - San Francisco Chronicle.
