    Perhaps the most famous of all traditional Irish music groups, the Chieftains are now known worldwide for their dedication to preserving the musical history of Ireland. In 1977, however, the Chieftains had yet to attain the massive popular success that they saw in the '90s. Still, their music was as impeccable and virtuosic as ever.
    When THE CHIEFTAINS 7 was recorded, bodhran player Kevin Conneff had just joined the group. Though his vocal talents would be wonderfully exploited on subsequent releases, he doesn't even sing on this album. Former Chieftain Michael Tubridy also appears here, his concertina featured on three polkas and two slides from Leitrim, Kerry, and Clare. Indeed, Tubridy's performance on "Oh! The Breeches Full of Stitches" brings the record to a climax, recalling a plain dance set in beautiful County Clare. Other songs such as "Friel's Kitchen" and "Away We Go Again" feature fiddler Sean Keane and piper Paddy Maloney, respectively.
