Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ruby recorded these albums in 1957 and 1962, but despite being recorded five years apart, there isn't much difference in the overall sound. Both were recorded in Ruby's customary style with orchestral backing and both are dominated by well known songs that we have come to think of as traditional songs. There is a nice mix of ballads and up-tempo songs .

Some of the songs are instantly recognizable just from the title while you'll probably recognize others when you hear them. Seeing the track listing, I guessed that I'd heard Miss O'Leary's Irish fruit cake before as Miss Fogarty`s Christmas cake, and I was right. I think there are other variations on the song too,

While this collection will be of greatest interest to fans of Irish music and / or Ruby Murray, there are a lot of songs here that a lot of other people will recognize too. Ruby was arguably the best Irish singer of her generation and she clearly loved Irish music. It shows on this collection.

Lucky indeed! 22 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This import CD of two the late Ruby Murray's albums is a delightful confection of Irish ballads. Murray was unabashedly gleeful, which makes her a joy to listen, even if she edges on the sweet just a little too much for some tastes. Surprisingly, however, Murray captures the beautiful emotional range of her material with control and flawless phrasing. A joy to listen to any time.

Murray Magic 16 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My husband has been looking for Ruby Murray's music for over 30 years, but it was nowhere to be found. He has a copy on a reel-to-reel tape but no tape player, so he always hoped to find the records in order to listen to her wonderful voice. I found the CD's and bought two for his birthday, and he is happy. It is a real treasure that this wonderful music has been preserved for the future. Ruby Murray is truly the Irish Nightingale.

Ruby 1 Mar 2004
By Beth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Ruby Murray was one of the many highlights of the early 50's. It's not hard to see why. She was innocent, proud of her culture, and possessed one sweet voice.
My mother liked it instantly but it took my sister a while for it to grow on her. With all the songs about Ireland I can kind of see why. But the songs aren't all the same. My favorite song is the pretty Peggy O'Neil. Miss O'Leary's Irish Fruit Cake is another. It's one weird druggy song. Perfect music for St. Patrick's Day or the afternoon.
