The Corrs - Fleadh 1998

Who says that bootlegs are bad for the music industry? If it weren't for this particular one, I wouldn't be the huge fan of the Corrs that I am today. Around February 1999, I traded CDs with an online friend from Ireland and received this one in return. We're both big fans of the Bee Gees, yet Gary had run out of Bee Gees items to offer in trade so he suggested that I might like this band. Before we carried out our trade though, I happened to be shopping in a music store one day when I spotted the Corrs CD single called What Can I Do and decided to buy it. Although I can't say I was impressed by that song, I did like their sound and told Gary I would trade him for the Fleadh 98 CD. I recall the day that I got it, I was chatting online with Gary when the song Haste To The Wedding came on. Well, I immediately fell in love with the song and the band, and the rest as they say is history.

The Corrs are a family band - lead singer Andrea, violinist Sharon, drummer Caroline and Jim on the guitar and keyboards. A band with celtic pop roots, they formed in 1991 and quickly became regionally popular in their native Ireland. In 1994, the American ambassador to Ireland invited the group to perform at the World Cup in Boston. That in turn led them into joining a tour with Celine Dion in 1996 right after an appearance at the Olympic games in Atlanta. Their debut album, Forgiven, Not Forgotten, which was released in 1996, was quite successful and achieved platinum status. Talk On Corners was released in 1998, with a subsequent release in expanded form. Their fourth album, In Blue, was released in 2000 and though popular, it departed somewhat from their celtic pop format in favor of a more mainstream pop appeal. Regardless of the direction that subsequent albums may take, it's clear that there is no end in sight for this tremendously popular and talented group.
