Planxty:129–145 is the first album by the Irish folk group Planxty, recorded in London during early September 1972 and released in early 1973. Because of its dark cover, Planxty is sometimes referred to as "the black album. Author Leagues O'Toole has written that the album "crystallises the 1972 set" performed live by the band during their first year of touring.

Although Planxty is nominally the first album by the band, all four members performed together on Christy Moore's previous album Prosperous, which opened with the same track, "Raggle Taggle Gypsy/Tabhair dom do Lámh". An earlier recording of "Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór" had been included as a b-side to Planxty's first single, "Three Drunken Maidens".

Planxty is the first album by the Irish folk group Planxty, released in 1973. Because of its dark cover, it is sometimes referred to as "the Black Album. The album features a variety of traditional and modern Irish folk songs and tunes. It was influential in popularising this genre. The last track revealed the impact of Balkan folk music on mandolinist Andy Irvine.

Label: Polydor ‎– 2383 186, Polydor ‎– 2383-186. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album. A superb, seminal album that encapsulated the 1970s roots return, this eponymous Planxty record contains the essential Planxty lineup: Donal Lunny (who also was a member of The Bothy Band), Andy Irvine, Liam O'Flynn and Christie Moore. Perhaps the best of the Planxty albums, it boasts many of the classics of traditional Irish music presented in a rollicking manner (that reel following The Jolly Beggar is fun to try and keep up with on your instrument) complemented by slower pieces such as "Sweet Thames Flow Softly).
