It seems as if Christy Moore has been part of the folk scene for almost as long as there has been a folk scene; but periodically people will come along who have yet to hear him for one reason or another. This CD would be an ideal introduction, containing many of his greatest songs and covers.
In his sleeve notes Christy describes his recent tours with guitarist Declan Sinnott as "the most satisfying period of my working life". This shows in the songs here. Newer songs like "Strangeways" and "Yellow Triangle" sit well alongside great classics - an outstanding version of Natives and the ethereal, timeless Bright Blue Rose.
If you caught Christy and Declan on the 2006 tour you will know just how good this is likely to be. And it IS that good.
