3.0 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Music but......., 12 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 46 of Your Favourite Irish Drinking Songs (Audio CD)
Anyone who has been to an Irish Evening of Drinking and Music will know that the musical entertainment consists of, not only Drinking Songs, but also Traditional Ballads, Fiddle Playing, Ceili Bands and of course, the Irish Rebel Songs, and this double CD is a great collection of some of the best from within these genres, including TWO different versions of that wonderful song from the pen of Phil Coulter "The Town I Loved So Well" - the sad lament to the town of Derry in the North of Ireland.
It's a shame that it is let down somewhat by rather poor recording quality in places, some tracks having been recorded at much higher volumes than others. the result is some distortion on certain tracks. Perhaps it WAS transferred from an LP as another reviewer suggested !
Delta Music, who have released these tracks on the "Performance" label, are a company at the cheaper end of the market, and presumably sacrificed quality for quantity, which is a great shame as I would rather have paid more for a better quality recording.
Having said that however it is a great collection, and unless you have most of the tracks on other CD's, it is worth having in your collection for the music alone, especially in view of the very reasonable price on Amazon.
For the musical content I would award it FIVE stars, but that has to be reduced to THREE stars in view of the PATCHY recording quality.
