By GlynLuke TOP 100 REVIEWER on 8 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
As I was walkin` home one evenin`
I know this takes some believin`
I met a group of creatures
With the strangest lookin` features.
A poor old dog with a worm and a weed
An` a fine old pigeon, yes indeed
Daddy longlegs jumped up sprightly
And danced a reel in the flickerin` light

With spidery-light guitar and Christy`s voice at its lightly lilting best, The Reel in the Flickering Light is a highlight not only of this classic set of songs but, I would say, of his whole career. And it`s not remotely political. Instead, it`s a lovely sprightly song by Colm Gallagher that pops up as the fifth track on this wonderful album from 1985, when yer man was forty.
And that`s not all. Want to hear a candidate for the most beautifully sung song you`ll ever hear? Sweet Music Roll On, which opens what was Side One, is by Graham Lyle and Tom McGuiness, and is so sublime I can`t find words to describe its beauty, except these inadequate cliches. Hear it and swoon.
Next is Delirium Tremens (a state with which CM was not unfamiliar) and it`s a vertiginous hoot, with a killer chorus.
Matty and The Diamond Drover are two more memorable songs on this most compelling of Christy Moore`s many records.
The rest of the songs are equally superb, but it`s the tipsily clandestine tale of the 'group of creatures' drunkenly dancing to the reel in the flickering light which is most unforgettable. Hope you love it as much as I do...

Oh, round we go
Heel to the toe
Daddy longlegs jumped up sprightly
And danced to the reel in the flickering light

Over several ever more gently whimsical verses, our roguish spider proves to be quite a lad, and something of a lady`s man (so to speak).

Unmissable.

A bit of nostalgia here - had a copy destroyed in a house fire. Bought the original at a gig at Leeds Irish Club way back. One of the great political singers, and what a superb voice.

Christy Moore has done it again, an awe inspiring, mouth watering collection of songs which make this man who he is today. He has captured the essence of Ireland and he has a distinct voice to allow easy listening. Well done Christy, once again!!
