I bought this recently,for certain tracks I knew of and was rewarded in the main with great songs. The best songs that stand out for me would be, 'elusive butterfly','what would I be','you're the only one','heaven is my woman's love','if I knew then what I know now','delaney's donkey','scarlet ribbons','it's impossible','if I were a carpenter', and 'ring of bright water'- being the most poignant and beautiful of love songs that has little equal.I personally think that the movie version of 'ring of bright water' is better, having guitars as the only accompaniment,and have often found this true of many productions in pop music, either by the same artist at a later date,or covered by others.more is not always a plus,(regarding accompaniment),and I find that solo piano or solo guitar(or at most two guitar accompaniment),is profoundly more effective than any addition of instruments that clearly detract from the pathos or beauty of the recording.however I'm not knocking Val as he has a timeless quality to his voice,and I would not be without this cd,besides which,if you like to laugh, 'Delaney's donkey' is the funniest thing you'll ever hear - just listen to the lyric as it plays,it's so cleverly written with fun in every line,coupled with the music that just sets it off, thoroughly recommended! soundscout

This review is from: Walk Tall: The Very Best Of Val Doonican (MP3 Download)
Not usually my thing but I was downloading some new albums to listen to on holiday, came accross this, which brought back memories. So I downloaded it. Very relaxing to listen to while lying on a sunkissed beach. That is till you come to Paddy McGinty's goat and Delaneys donkey. Then you make a fool of yourself laughing out loud !!!! Then you listen to them again.......

4.0 out of 5 stars Val Doonican double CD, 18 Jan 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was bought as a present, mainly for Paddy McGinty's Goat, O'Rafferty's Motor Car and Delaney's Donkey. There were a lot of songs on the second CD that were not mainstream, but it makes good listening if you are a fan. In hindsight the single CD would have been enough, but with so little price difference it is well worth getting this.

I have not bought this yet but as an avid Val music collector this looks like a comprehensive collection of Val's output whilst with DECCA records which as a result I will be buying because I only have all on Vinyl LP's. He then moved onto PYE records and released his No.1 hit album which I wish you could buy on CD called "Val Rocks but Gently"
