There aren't many records that make me laugh out loud, or cry real tears. I Wrote this Wee Song does both, by turns, pretty much all the way through. Eric Bogle is truly brilliant. To the picks of the reviewers below, I'd like to add my vote for Singing the Spirit Home and Mirrors on the serious side, and Plastic Paddy and Short White Blues for comic relief. And between the songs Eric's patter raises a few laughs and makes the whole thing feel very real and from the heart. Get this record, really.
