Sleeve Notes

Shane MacGowan is unique, everybody knows that.

Concerts with Shane MacGowan's Popes are special, but each year on Paddy's Day the shows are something extra, an occasion not to be missed. The year 2001 was even more special and Shane was even more unique because, thanks to an outbreak of foot and mouth disease, the official Paddy's Day in Dublin had to be moved from March to May and Shane became the first Irish performer ever to be able to celebrate Paddy's Day on stage in both New York and Dublin in the same year.

If you were there at the shows, you know how great they were.

If you missed the shows, then get lucky now and, with this CD, enjoy a take-away Paddy's Night with Shane MacGowan's Popes at home any time.
