5.0 out of 5 stars Superb archival performance January 12, 2007
Format:DVD
Mutton chop sideburns, bell bottoms and beehives add a charming accent to this delightful collection of traditional Irish dance, music and song drawn from twenty five years (1961-1986) of Irish Public Broadcasting. Many of the performers are unknown in any international sense, but the extraordinarily high standard of virtuosity makes this a real pleasure to watch. The lovely melodies and irresistible beats of traditional Irish performance are truly enjoyable in this bargain-priced, two hour-plus DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A slice of Ireland September 17, 2007
By C. Roll
Format:DVD
If you're looking for a glitzy performance like Riverdance, this is not the dvd for you. If you're looking for a slice of Irish culture and music from the 60s-80s, this is it. Most of the performers are not even professionals. There's a clip of a young boy in Buncrana singing Four Green Fields in 1976. It gave me chills the first time I heard it. His voice is amazing. There's a touching performance at Sean O'Riada's funeral sung by Sean O'Se. And there's a very funny looking clip taken in a pub somewhere with an old man singing with his eyes shut and his friend seems to be pumping the song out of him with one hand and holding a pint in the other. I loved this dvd. I'll know I'll watch it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "West" is the Best! March 14, 2007
Format:DVD
Want a crash course in pre-Celtic Tiger Irish culture? Viewing the historic archival segments on this video collection of Irish music, song and dance performances captured over a four deade period is like a getting a crash PH.D. on the topic. The DVD has become the 'must have' item if you're a Irish music session hound. Some rough audio and low quality video for certain segments only add to the charm. Pour yourself a pint, tune your instrument, and sit back and enjoy the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars only irish need apply January 26, 2008
Format:DVD
...or those who are interested in the real deal. You want real Irish, this is it. There is something really stunning about this huge collection, something so anti-Michael-Flatley-in-little-bullfighter-jacket. If you're a hardcore fan of traditional music and dance, you'll know many or most of the people here; if not, it doesn't matter, you'll know 'em after you watch and listen. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine traditional Irish music and dancing! July 9, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Others have given five gold stars to this DVD - I would like to add my own. This is an opportunity to open a window and view traditional Irish music and dancing as it was done by groups of people and individuals who dance for the pure enjoyment of it. It is not done by professionals, but by ordinary, every day citizens of "Erin's Green Isle". My hat is off to the Irish public television station who went out and recorded this bit of Irish life. I highly reconmmend this DVD - my guess is you will not be able to resist getting out of your easy chair and dancing along with the Irish folk.

5.0 out of 5 stars definitely worth a punt.... October 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen most of the episodes of Come West Along the Road on telly back home, so there wasn't a lot new here for me - still nice to have it all on a DVD though. For my tastes it's a wee bit heavy on songs, seems like there's a tune, and then a song, a tune and then a song etc etc. I suppose if you prefer songs you'll think it's a bit top heavy with tunes! Fun spotting the younger versions of well known musicians (a very young Martin Hayes with short hair, or Kieran Hanrahan with Stockton's Wing). With all the wealth of material RTE has in their archives, it'd be nice if they put out a lot more of these, maybe with themes, such as "songs", "Sliabh Luachra", fleadh cheoil na heireann", etc, etc. Just a thought...
