(notice I avoided any 'Rockist' terms such as 'best', 'greatest' or 'favorite')

I'd like to to know what Celtic (Folk/Pop/Rock) albums you would recommend.

Theres also a thread for non-Celtic World music.

'Rum, Sodomy & The Lash' is about the only 'celtic rock' I can handle.

The followup "IF I Should Fall From Grace with God" comes close to matching it.

Please be to recommend me some Scottish celtic music. My mum is all about the origins trip now and I'd like to get her some recordings of reasonably legit stuff, e.g., Davy Steele.

I have this great recording on tape of the song Lovely Molly but I have not idea who the singer is. Any ideas? It's a female singer back by, I think, an all-female chorus. I know that's not much to go on for a widely covered song like this. She hits some exquisite notes.

I can add that this would have been recorded no later than the late 80s, but probably earlier than that.

It may actually be called "The Yowe Lamb" and not "Lovely Molly." I can't even find a midi file that comes close to reproducing the version I have on tape.

One of the ten most beautiful songs I've ever heard (I just decided that this week) and apparently it has slipped through the cracks.

Still trying to find out whose recording of this amazing song I heard.

DESCRIPTION: Molly agrees to marry Willie if her father consents. Willie asks the father for a "yowe lamb" to start a flock. Her father consents and tells Willie to "choose a yowe lamb." Willie chooses Molly. Her father is upset by the trick, but allows the match
