If you are new to the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem then I would suggest a complation like this to you. There are better ones out there, but this is an okay one to start with. If you are a true fan and are sick of all the complations, then DON'T get this one. Send a petition to Columbia Records demanding that they release the original LP's to CD!
Two years later, I'm deciding to edit this review. Not only did Columbia issue this pointless complation, but they screwed with the original sound mix. When comparing this Cd to the original LP's, there is added reverb (echo). Nothing irritates me more then when a remastering engineer thinks they can improve on the original recordings in some way, such as by adding stereo reverb to mono recordings or ruining them with noise reduction. Columbia/Legacy, shame on you!!!
