A Great Record,
This review is from: Prosperous (Audio CD)
This is an early record by the now established singer Christie Moore. The first track slowly shades into "Tabhair dom do lamh" or Give me your Hand in English. There are some tracks with a background such as "Lock Hospital", the original version of "Streets of Laredo" with a poor soldier cut down by syphalis and being buried - "The girls of the city were the ruin of me". There are also tributes to Woody Guthrie and his fellow commie Pete Seeger as well as upbeat Irish songs like "Spancilhill" and the "Hackler from Grouse Hall".
