Christy Moore's "Live from Dublin" brings back a flood of memories for my husband and me. We were picked up at the Dublin airport on our honeymoon by a taxi driver who had Christy's CD playing in his car. He begged forgiveness for some of the "crude" language in it (which is nothing big here in the states) that has to do with a lot of Irish politics. We bought it in Dublin because we weren't sure we could find it (leave it to Amazon!) and had to have it. This mix of the audience's participation in clapping and Christy's fantastic, broguey voice is perfect. On some of the tracks you need to turn the volume up to hear exactly what Christy is saying/ singing, but it is hilarious, romantic, and it makes you want to get up and do a jig! The songs are all completely different. I can hear it in my head days after I've played it and I still want to hear it again! I have several of Christy's CD's, and this one, by far, is the best mix of his music. Buy it! You'll enjoy it and wear it out.
