Before getting together to record the album, all the members of the original lineup has experience of performing with each other as they previously performed together in Sean O Riada Folk Orchestra called Ceoltoiri Cualan.
With the music on their album, The Chieftains gave a new concept when it comes to Irish Folk music by introducing instrumental pieces rather than vocal pieces. At that time, Irish folk music mainly relied upon vocal arrangements and acts like Paul and Mary, The Dubliners and Peter, were at the height of their success. At that time when instrumental album came once in a blue moon, the Chieftains made place for themselves in the Irish music industry. Following the release of their debut album, the group didn’t release another studio album for next five years.
