  • RIVERDANCE won the 1997 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
  • The Grammy Award-winning soundtrack to the popular Riverdance stage show has been re-released with a bonus remix of "Riverdance," as well as deluxe packaging which includes photographs from the show. Bill Whelan, who has worked for twenty years as a composer, producer, and arranger (his credits include work for Kate Bush, Hothouse Flowers, Van Morrison, and U2, among others), achieved international recognition for RIVERDANCE.
  • Whelan incorporates a variety of ethnic musical traditions as well as modern and choral music and the hypnotic, rhythmic hard-shoe Irish dancing for which RIVERDANCE is famous. This album traverses the continents, assembling an amazing group of international and Irish musicians. Standouts include the Irish choral group Anuna performing "Shivna," a haunting piece whose Irish lyrics are based on an 11th Century text.

If you've ever seen The Show, then you know what I mean when I say WORDS CAN NOT DESCRIBE WHAT YOU HEAR. Riverdance -- Music from The Show is the best CD ever, it's even been released 3 Times by different records labels, and with each new release more tracks are added and the music just gets better and better. If you find the Atlantic Records version you will hear the "taps" from the dancers on Tracks 1, 3, and 16. If you get the Universal/Celticheartbeat version you will hear the taps only on tracks 1 and 3 but you will hear an EXCELLENT REMIX of the Title Track RIVERDANCE!
If you haven't seen The Show, go see it, then buy the CD, or BUY the CD, then go see THE SHOW.

The Original International Dance Phenonmenon The Magic, Energy, and Passion...

Another great Irish music CD.
Similar to Lord of the Dance, but I think the other is slightly better. I think my favourite song is Lift the Wings, even though it is a vocal rather than a dance song. Most of the songs are really good and you won't be able to stop your feet from tapping!
Recommend for anyone who likes Irish music. Don't bother trying to pick between this one and Lord of the Dance, just buy both!! The complement each other so well.
