Christy Moore - Prosperous 1972 @ 192

The album that started it all, the revival of traditional Irish music (which assumes, of course, that it needed reviving) and most importantly, led to the formation of the great Irish traditional band, Planxty.

A bunch of mates collect in a hotel, how Irish, and record, crudely, a belter of an album. Truly a great album.
