Sleeve Notes

You're holding in your hands the album they said couldn't be made, Volume 2 of "20 Great Irish Drinking Songs". Unsuspecting record buyers all over the country were driven to inflict personal injury on their own vocal chords by the sheer infectious-ness of Volume 1, and you could be running the same risk with this, the latest collection from the talented Jolly Beggarmen. With songs ranging from the rousing "On The One Road" and "Rocky Road To Dublin", to the haunting "Rare Oul' Times" and "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda". An evening with these four talented musicians and their friends is an intoxicating experience.
