Product Description

• A reissue at mid price for the Clancy Brothers’ 1995 reunion album.

• After recording more than 50 albums, the Clancy Brothers split up, with Liam Clancy forming a duo with Tommy Makem. Bobby Clancy replaced Makem and Robbie O’Connell also joined. Liam rejoined the Clancy Brothers in 1995.

• This was the first time this particular line-up had ever recorded together. In addition, with the exception of ‘When The Ship Comes In’, the band had not recorded any of the songs previously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the most under-appreciated albums in the genre 27 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Clancy's, here, have given us a work that pushes beyond the pub song/ballad/folksiness that defines much of their work. Very similar to the works of Bob Dylan on Time out of Mind, or Warren Zevon on Life Will Kill Ya, this record contemplates the anguish of aging without sacrificing that certain Clancy brothers charm. I would recomend this album based solely on what I consider to be the most haunting and meaningful rendition of The Final Trawl ever recorded. A star must be striken from the rating only because the rendition of When the Ship Comes In was very sub par to the live performance they gave on the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary concert album. That album, to, may be worth buying on the strength of the single track (though, don't get me wrong, I think it's an excellent album for all of them).

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't match the old stuff, but still satisfying 3 Nov. 1999
By Francis King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
By the time this was recorded, Tommy Makem was long since history as a member of this seminal Irish folk group. Robbie O'Connell was a talented replacement, but of course, the Clancy boys were all feeling their years, and so there simply isn't the energy and passion that even the brilliant 1984 Reunion live album had. Still, it's a nice quality recording and the singing is first-rate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Softer and more Contemplative than earlier albums 1 May 2015
By FAmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Still in good voice, and spirit. Liam and Paddy from the original quartet are joined by Bobby and Robbie O'Connell. The overall sound is familiar, but not quite the same sound without Tom Clancy and Tommy Makem. The album is somewhat more contemplative than earlier ones. Some lovely songs on this album. The Final Trawl is a real standout.

they don't make music like this anymore and that's a shame. Robbie O'connell has a voice that is smooth as silk
