Production Notes

The recordings for this album were made on digital equipment by NOS radio in Holland for the AVRÒ radio programme 'Folk live' at the Carré Theatre in Amsterdam on October 6, 1983.

As founder member Luke Kelly tragically died only a few months after this concert those recordings are the very last Dubliners recordings with Luke.

This album is as much a historical event as it is a musical highlight in the respectable career of one of Europe's finest musical groups: The Dubliners.


Sleeve Notes

Al ruim 20 jaar zijn The Dubliners de verpersoonlijking van de lerse folkmuziek. Op vele podia overal ter wereld brengen zij hun meeslepende balladen, hun uitbundige folksongs en hun opzwepende jigs en reels.

In één van hun meest uitgebreide formaties stonden ze op het podium van Theater Carré in Amsterdam tijdens, wat later zou blijken, één van de laatste concerten met Luke Kelly, die in 1984 overleed.

Tijdens dit gedenkwaardige concert, dat één muzikaal hoogtepunt was, werd ook nieuwkomer Sean Cannon gei'ntroduceerd die met zijn heldere stem en zijn inbreng in het repertoire de groep een belangrijke nieuwe impuls gaf.

De unieke opnamen op deze plaat werden gemaakt voor het AVRÒ radio programma 'Folk live'. Dat gebeurde met de nieuwste, glasheldere, digitale opname-technieken. Een geweldig sfeervol geheel, met bekende suksessen als 'Whiskey in the Jar',

'The Wild Rover' en 'Seven Drunken Nights', maar ook recent repertoire zoals 'Song for Ireland' en 'Waterford Boys'.

Een elpee met ruim 50 minuten The Dubliners live in concert voor een enthùusiast Nederlands publiek.

Een unieke gebeurtenis en tegelijk een historisch dokument.

The Dubliners have been the personification of Irish folk music for more than 20 years. On many stages all over the world they bring their compelling ballads, their exuberant folk songs and their uplifting jigs and reels.

In one of their most extensive formations they stood on the stage of Theater Carré in Amsterdam during, as it turned out, one of the last concerts with Luke Kelly, who died in 1984.

During this memorable concert, which was one musical highlight, newcomer Sean Cannon was introduced who, with his clear voice and his contribution to the repertoire, gave the group an important new impulse.

The unique recordings on this record were made for the AVRÒ radio program 'Folk live'. This happened with the latest, crystal clear, digital recording techniques. A great atmospheric whole, with well-known successes such as 'Whiskey in the Jar',

'The Wild Rover' and 'Seven Drunken Nights', but also recent repertoire such as 'Song for Ireland' and 'Waterford Boys'.

An LP with over 50 minutes The Dubliners live in concert for an enthusiastic Dutch audience.

A unique event and at the same time a historical document.
