Got this for Christmas from my husband. Excellent vintage era Irish music. I love the true to Irish lyrics in these songs. I would recommend.

I bought this thinking I would get an amazing library of Irish tunes to learn. Instead, it was comedy routines and "I love me whiskey" songs and only a few instrumental tunes, with most of the song and instrumental tracks having a jokey piano accompaniment played by someone who totally disregards their harmonic direction - inevitably muddy noise ensues. So, get this if you want a period flavor but be prepared to hear a lot of junk from a time when people were trying to make Irish music sound like normal European pop music instead of just picking a good drone and letting these interesting old music styles be.
