Not in the classic status of his 'Ordinary man' album, but definitely his second best album. Themes on the album are typically Irish ones, immigration and revolution. The courage of as they were know then 'black Irish' immigrants is relayed in The City of Chicago and Bobby Sands' composition 'Back home in Derry'. Homage is at last paid to the heroic 5th international brigade who fought against Franco's force before WWII in the powerful 'Viva La Quinta Brigada'. A couple of the album highlights are 'The Wandering Aoengus' the haunting W.B.Yeats Poem set to a wonderfully simple yet haunting tune and the amazing wordplay of the Legendary Lisdoonvarna. A must have.

This is full of songs that you find yourself singing under your breath - 'Ride On', 'Lisdoonvarna', 'Wandering Aongus' - it's the first album I heard by him, and still my favourite.
I first heard Lisdoonvarna on Irish radio, and thought it was an advertising jingle for the Irish tourist board. Then got to 'massage parlours in horse boxes' and thought - what? Mind you, this is the Irish tourist board. But even so, surely not. But then - Ireland. That place where a tramp can waltz (alone, and quite literally) across a major intersection in Dublin through three lights changes and not one driver will as much as beep or edge forward until he's safely onto pavement again. But even so...
One kindly record store later, I was the proud possessor of a fine (vinyl) record - which this replaced.
My favourite quote? 'This is heaven - this is hell - who cares, who can tell? Anyone for the last few choc ices now.'
Pretty much sums up the music festival experience for me.
The other songs are all completely different, from Lisdoonvarna and from each other - and all good.

I first heard Christy Moore about 30 years ago at the cambridge folk festival and was completely bowled over by his music. I had this CD on tape for many years until it decided to go missing and I finally got round to replacing it. Christy Moore is an irish folk singer who is really more of a story teller. He sings of love life and the stuggles in Ireland as well as the joy of music and the friendship it brings. His voice is somewhat haunting and if you love folk music and you havent come across Christy Moore then give this a try. I just love it.

Enjoyed this CD especially as I bought it to listen to when travelling around the Dublin area, however Christy Moor's gravelly voice certainly helped to add atmosphere to the trip. It would have been 5 stars but for some reason CD would not copy from iTunes to iPod

I've been listening to irish music for quite a long time but never delved deep into christy's moore music, I only knew him through some video's alongside Sinead o'connor.iI had been dying to buy some cd's to touch by hand if he was as great as Van Morrison.I must say that this album came as a great surprise to me,i'm still not sure if he is in the same league of Van the Man but i would recommend it to anyone who love irish music.I think i'll search for some previous albums

I don't think Christy Moore has bettered this album, either before or since. Obviously it contains the all time classic 'RideOn', but that is only part of the story. Throughout the album Christy sings about local Irish politics and history as well as that of world politics (A familiar subject in much of his 1980s work) The City Of Chicargo, a tail of emigration, written by his brother Barry (Better known as Luka Bloom); Viva La Quinte Brigada, the story of those Irish who fought in the Spanish Civil War against Fascism; El Salador; Back Home in Derry, a story of being banished from Ireland to Australia on a prison ship. Then we have the wonderful Lisdoonvarna a story of the folk festival where many of the stars of the day get a name check; McIllhatton, a tale of poteen making in the Antrim Glens and The Least We Can Do, a tribute to John Lennon. A truly superb album and one well worth buying.
