Product Description

Product Description

Christy Moore - Collection, Pt. 2

Amazon.co.uk

It's perhaps a measure of Christy Moore's towering influence over Irish music that, while the impression of him may be as a singer of traditional material, the majority of the material on this second volume of his best work (as with the first) is predominantly self-penned. Moore's work has quite simply been assimilated into the tradition itself. His songs offer snapshots of Irish life and society, both serious and frivolous. Vignettes such as "Smoke & Strong Whiskey" dips into everyday existence while "North & South" (cowritten with Bono and The Edge) looks at a much bigger picture and finds the staunchly Nationalist Moore in a reflective ("there's some high ground that's not worth taking… some old songs not worth singing"). As always there is the lighter side to be explored; few could tackle the 13-minute monologue of "Rose of Trail" in the dry environment of the studio and make it sound so alive. The voice is unmistakable, as is the guitar playing and the songwriting craft. --Phil Udell

Wonderful Christy Moore . This is a great CD with so many songs from the moving ballads to the highly amusing Rose of Tralee. I recommend this CD to all Christy Moore fans .

Christy Moore is great; a truly astonishing man capable of delivering a lyric with tremendous feeling and this compilation has some of his strong, more recent stuff.

I started with Vol 1 and now have every record he's ever made, so I can only recommend this to anyone not familiar with his work. Just be prepared to love it and buy the proper albums too.

There are currently two Christy Moore best Of albums and ive recently purchased both. As best of Albums go, both of them give great value for money not to mention the brilliant music too. Collection album 2 has so many beautiful tracks i wouldnt know where to start. Some people may find Christy Moore to be an equired taste, but theyd be fishing in the wrong pond. As for me well i would recommend collection 1 and 2 very highly. But dont take my word for it, the choice is up to you.

I enjoyed the songs, especially The Rose of Tralee which i had not heard before

Disappointed not to have the lyrics included in the sleeve.

I would still recommend it to every Christy Moore fan
