Enya - Enya

Enya (later re-released as The Celts) is the first album by Irish singer Enya, released in 1987 Enya's first full-album recording, Enya / The Celts features music written and recorded for the soundtrack of the 1986 documentary television series, The Celts.

Recorded in 1986, it was not released until 1987 when the series was first broadcast.

The album was first released in the UK by the BBC on their own label, and later issued in North America by Atlantic Records.

In 1992, Warner Music reissued a remixed and slightly revised version of the album as The Celts.

The original version Enya was no longer manufactured.

The Fugees sampled "Boadicea" from this album for their song "Ready or Not" on 1996's The Score.

Enya had prepared to sue the group for copyright infringement because they had not asked for permission and did not give her credit.

After learning that The Fugees were not gangsta rappers, Enya declined to follow through with the suit, but stickers were then placed on The Score giving Enya credit for her work.

Mario Winans also sampled "Boadicea" for the melody of the song "I Don't Wanna Know" .

Producer P.

Diddy reportedly personally contacted Enya for permission and gave her 60 percent of the royalties.

She also received name billing for the song, which turned out to be a hit, putting her name #2 on the "Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks" chart in 2004.

The song was also sampled on the answer-back song "You Should Really Know" by The Pirates featuring Shola Ama, Naila Boss & Ishani which peaked at #8 on the UK Singles Chart.

"Boadicea" was also sampled by Nina Sky for their hype single "Time To Go" featuring Angie Martinez, from the mixtape presented by Cipha Sounds.

Actually, they more sampled "Ready or Not", as it does feature lyrics from that song as well.

The album contains only a portion of the music Enya composed for the TV series.

In 2005, a previously unreleased track from these sessions, a "Spaghetti Western Theme" done in the style of Hugo Montenegro, was released on the CD-single for "Amarantine", in memory of one of the producers of the TV series.

Music from the Celts soundtrack would later be reused for the soundtrack of the video production The Memory of Earth, produced by David Bickley.

The song "Boadicea" was also on the "Sleepwalkers" (1992) soundtrack.
