Sleeve Notes

"Come over and hear him," said his good friend, Johnny. "He has a voice that could stop a train".

So I went and listened … to sixteen bars … but Pearse Plunkett's voice STARTED A TRAIN!

A train of thought in my mind, which, in express time, produced this album.

Climb aboard, then. The signals are set.

Dubliner Pearse Plunkett is steaming to stardom.
