Sleeve Notes

Here is a sample of a Group that has drawn superlatives from critics and whose voices collectively and individually have been compared with such things as Guinness and Horse Liniment. Their rousing, rough hewn, blarney soaked approach to Irish Music has won them friends the world over. The four tracks featured here are drawn two each from their two L.P.'s on the Transatlantic label. On "Peggy Lettermore", Ciaron [sic] takes the lead, "The Ragman's Ball" is one of Ronnie's inimitable Dublin ballads; The Reels, "Sligo Maid" and "Colonel Rodney" give John and Barney the perfect opportunity to show off their instrumental talents and "Home Boys Home" has the Group together with their bosom companion Luke Kelly.
