Celtic Legacy's first album was recorded in March 1998. It was funded entirely by the band and was an ambitious project for the various members, given that it was the very first activity they undertook as a unit. In fact it wasn't until after the recordings were completed that they settled on the name 'Celtic Legacy', deciding to name the band after the album's epic title track.

Musically, this album is a forerunner for the more cohesive 'Resurrection' which surfaced in 2003. Indeed there is much more experimentation on this album than the follow-up and this album is preferred by some some hard core members over it's heavier and much more accliamed successor. What gives this album its own unique identity among Legacy fans is the inclusion of Ciara Roe on fiddle. At the time she joined the band, the majority of the material had already been written, but her arrival enabled some new elements to be added to the music which cemented the Celtic influences and gave them more room to breathe on the album.

Tracks like 'Lost Soul', Glen Corr - The Spirit Of The Vagabond' and the epic title track became instant classics and paved the way for heavier tracks a few years later. The more straight ahead rock fare of 'Wandering Free' and 'Catch The Wind' opened the album in fine style. The closing balad 'Waterfront' was written late on and used a vehicle for the fiddle. Of the other tracks, 'Rainman' was possibly an experiment that didn't work too well and 'Shine' would find a new lease of life on the 'Resurrection' album.

Shortly after this album's completion, the cracks were already beginning to appear in the line-up and by the end of the year changes were being made. As it turned out, these were just the first of many that would happen before another album could be made.

Today, Legacy's first album is seen as a stepping stone toward album number 2. Resurrection would never have seen the light without this first one. By the time the music had been written for the follow up, a harder style of music emerged, but the band still retained the trademark melodies that first surfaced here.

This is where it all began.

All sales of this album will include a free bonus promotional CD with a specially re-recorded instrumental version of Celtic Legacy.
