Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The word "legend" is often overused, however, in the case of Christy Moore, I would consider it to be completely justified as he truly is one of the giants of Irish folk music. He has written and interpreted songs which tell beautifully descriptive stories, battle against prejudice and injustices, speak of drinking, romancing, dancing, being caught in the working class trap and many other subjects, usually with a dash of likeable humour. It also documents life in Ireland over the past century, the highs, lows, the deadly serious and the trivial, all with Christy's very individual take on it.

Although this huge three-disc collection is labelled as a retrospective, there are two new tracks and the other forty-three tracks have all been re-recorded by Christy and long-time collaborator Declan Sinnott (amongst others), so this isn't your usual greatest hits package and will be of great interest to admirers of Moore's music. Indeed, there are some tracks that have been omitted that you will be surprised by, if you are a fan of Christy's, but there is a certain near-live (a couple of tracks are actually live) character to this massive collection, so listening to this album, from start to finish, is like sitting through one of Christy's wonderful live shows (something I did last month), albeit without his enjoyable ad-libs.

As this is such as massive collection, I simply cannot begin to talk about the merits of individual songs, otherwise I would be typing and enthusing all day - it's pretty much all fantastic stuff. One thing I will say to surmise the content of this album is that if I could put my finger on one defining characteristic of Christy's music, it would be his honesty.

You know exactly what to expect from Christy Moore, foot tapping songs, with a lovely voice to boot. Some classic songs in this collection, especially Joxter which brings back fantastic memories of World Cup Football

Christy at his absolute best well worth the small cost only problem is that Christy is not producing enough new work for me.

I have been a fan of Christy Moore for years and although this cd has lots of songs sung live and some slightly changed in the lyrics my main concern with this album is the way it's recorded. It's as if the whole cd was being played at the wrong speed. It just seems slow and this makes Christy's voice sound flat. I still listen to it but it's not my favourite album of the king Christy's

Having been enthralled with Christy's music for over 20 years and having the pleasure of seeing him a few years ago- this new album comes along as celebration of what is special about him. The biggest joy about Christy is his honesty in presenting the injustices that exist in our society both locally and internationally. This Cd set comes highly recommended to any music fan!

Christy Moore is nothing short of a genius. His songs portray fabulous stories, some poignant, some true and often humorous, he is without doubt a master story teller and a fine musician to boot. If you want to get to the heart of Irish music, Christy, for me, is there. His songs are often seen as having a political edge but the truth of the matter is Christy is a great humanitarian and sings about injustice not politics something which I identified with from the very start.

The humorous songs are laugh out loud, the injustice songs bring tears to your eyes and the love songs are truly beautiful. Anything by Christy Moore is worth having and this is no exception. As you can probably tell, I cannot recommend Christy and his music highy enough.

This set of 3 cd's contains mostly old songs performed by Christy and accompanied by Declan Sinnott. Some of them are live recordings on a gig.

If you expect something new from Christy, this box is not the right choice. Most of the songs have been published before, in this collection they may be new versions of the old songs.

But this collection is very enjoyable and a good choice if you want an overview of Christy's journey through years.
