Enya was member of Clannad for 2 years, which also had her brother and sister as members. She left the group to do soundtrack for BBC documentry called "The Celts" which later became her first album.

garfish: i apologize. you were right. "paint the sky" did come out first on the us cd. it's also on the australian 3 cd box set called "a box of dreams." i thought the austrailian box preceded the us cd. it didn't. i do, BTW, highly recommend a box of dreams. it's a bit pricy (check out cdnow and other online discounters) but has better overall sound quality, IMO, than the us pressings of the same tunes. the german (or is it dutch?) lp pressing of paint the stars is also worth having.
My wife found out about the new Enya release before me and won't let me buy it 'cuz it's going to be a present. Even though her last release was mostly previously released music, I loved it for the title track alone-- "Paint the Sky with Stars"-- which was a new song. Soaring and beautiful. Yeah, I would like to see her get even more creative too-- she has much to offer. Cheers. Craig.
