This speculative purchase was a mistake. Great songs have been truly strangled. A number of upbeat toe tapping classics are almost spoken rather than sang with conviction and energy. Overall, incredibly dull. I cried at the way in which McAlpine's Fusiller's was conveyed by a voice infused with boredom, it seemed to me!Stick with " The Dubliners" who sing the same songs with soul, skill, fun and real energy.
On the plus side, the tin container is nice and robust. In fact, I am using it to house my Dubliners CDs.
