Dublin, Ireland – Stocktons Wing Live – Take One was without
doubt the group’s bestselling album capturing their eclectic live sound.
Throughout the Eighties Stockton’s Wing were labelled Pop, Rock, Folk, Trad,
Celtic Fusion (and a lot worse) by different publications, but the tens of
thousands who attended the almost 1500 performances across Ireland, the UK and
America, Stockton’s Wing just meant good music and a great night out. ‘Stockton’s
Wing Live – Take One‘ captures that feeling. Produced by their good friend Bill Whelan, who later achieved major success with
Riverdance, ‘Stockton’s Wing Live – Take One’ will without doubt bring back many
memories of their youth, to many now forty something’s. The album, which has
been digitally remastered for this release, also includes 3 bonus studio
recordings of the band from the same period.
This album includes the definitive versions of some of the group’s
best-known and best-loved tracks including; Beautiful Affair -Skidoo – Walk Away
– The Mason’s Apron – and a very special version (with audience participation)
of Silent Dreams.
