More Importantly:
The Long Black Veil is an album by the traditional Irish folk band The Chieftains. Released in 1995, it is one of the most popular and best selling albums by the band.[3] It reached number 17 in the album charts.[3] The band teamed up with well-known musicians such as Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and Van Morrison.[3] The album went gold in the U.S. and Australia, and Double-Platinum in Ireland. [3] One of the tracks, “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?”, sung and written by Van Morrison, won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 1996.
Credited collaborators include Marianne Faithfull, Mark Knopfler, Mick Jagger, Ry Cooder, Sinéad O’Connor, Sting, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Van Morrison and Arty McGlynn.[3]
The Tennessee Waltz/Mazurka was recorded at Frank Zappa’s studio not long before he died. There is video evidence (available as a bootleg called ‘Salad Party’) that additional material was recorded during this session, though The Chieftains have not released this material.

    It is certainly my favourite. It was originally my dad's, but now I listen to it more than him! Same with the Corrs Unplugged CD. I think he's forgotten he owns it. Ha ha.
