Altan played live in concert the following tracks: "Súil Ghorm", "John Doherty's Reels", "Germans", "I Wish My Love Was a Red Red Rose", "Flood in the Holm/Scots Mary/The Dancer's Denial" & "Gleanntáin Ghlas' Ghaoth Dobhair".
This album was released some three years after former co-bandleader, Frankie Kennedy, had died from cancer. He was the husband of lead singer Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh. Some of the tracks appear to be a heart-breaking elegy for Frankie, notably the climaxes of the album, "Time Has Passed". "Súil Ghorm" is the first track and seems also to refer to the times Mairéad spent with Frankie.
