I'm not an Irish music scholar, just a casual fan.
Sean Tanner
Thumping fists on tables, clapping hands, and clinking beer mugs make you feel as if you were right there with this rowdy bunch.

The amazing Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem shine in all their Irish glory on this album.

This is my favorite St. Patrick's Day cd and it's always a winner at parties. Top 40 shmorty...play this at your parties no matter what the crowd and watch all your friends become happy drunk irishmen right before your eyes as the party goes on.
The Dubliners do a few songs on this cd, but most are performed by the Clancy Brothers who are my absolute favorites. Powerful vocals and great lively music. Lotsa humor thrown in too.
Whiskey in the Jar performed by the Dubliners is Great!
Not too sure what song two is about, but the title is Beer, Beer, Beer.
Water is alright in Tay...Perfect song for drinkin'(especially a cold pint of Guiness).
The list goes on and on and then you get to my personal favorite: Finnegan's Wake...Fighting and drinking and people returning from the dead...A wonderful family get together song performed nicely by the Clancy Brothers. Lot's of comical stories in the music as in Juice of the Barley and Finnegan's Wake. The Parting Glass should not be played until nearly the end of any party...it's truly a parting song. Skip this until the end (I actually love this song, but when you hear it you will understand what I mean).
If you really want to liven up the party and you cater to a younger crowd, mix this cd with the punkish Dropkick Murphys music. They do some Irish folk covers like Rocky Road to Dublin, Finnegan's Wake etc...
Bainne na mo is an gamna and the juice of the barley for me!
Enjoy this cd and Don't Drink and Drive!

There once was an album of green,
Full of songs about beer and poteen,
Twas great start to finish,
Likely 'cause of the Guinness,
So I give it five stars on your screen.

Format: Audio CD
When I came across this album, I was looking for two things: 1) an album that would remind me of the cheerful, fun atmosphere of authentic irish pubs across Europe, and 2) something that I wouldn't be embarrassed to play at a party or gathering of friends to stir up the atmosphere a little bit.
This album is definately reminiscent of authentic Irish pubs. In fact, it was recorded live and you can hear the clapping and clanging beer mugs in the background. This can become annoying at times but it is fun to hear the songs sung in the way they were intended--with a lot of audience participation. The band is not GREAT but they sound like any pub band. This album earned a majority of its stars for being a great cultural artifact. The album has the main staples of Irish drinking songs--"Whisky in the Jar," "Wild Rover," and "Jug of Punch"--as well as some pleasant, not so well known, surprises such as, "Big Strong Man."
I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the songs. While I do LOVE the authenticity of the singing, I don't think this would be a great hit at parties. It is a bit too disruptive (with all of the clanging and clapping) to be background music and all of the pre-recorded audience participation makes it difficult to understand the songs.
If you are interested in culture for culture's sake and you enjoy singing along to fun music in your car--this CD is for you. If you are looking for something to enjoy with a group, go for something a bit more polished like the Dubliners.

If you have not heard these wonderful drinking songs, you have missed out on the CD of your life. This CD means so much to me that I cannot even describe it in words. When my ex broke up with me I grabbed a gallon of Irish whiskey and played this album while locked in my room sobbing. I stayed there for a couple days. When I emerged from my room I was a changed woman. Let me tell you something, this album changed my life. That is all I can say about it.

This is one of the greatest collections of Irish folk music ever created. The amazing Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem shine in all their Irish glory on this album. From top to bottom, there isn't a song here that isn't great. It is raw, filled with feelings that range from heavenly cheer to straight despair. Their voices are amazing. Their timing is perfect. This is some of the best music ever played. Regardless of if you are Irish or not, if you drink or not... this album is a must have. RIP Tommy Makem.

Each of the songs on this CD is worth listening to and singing poorly over a couple of pints. The fast paced songs are mixed well with a few slower ones, and each song is a gem.

You'll have to find this item in a CD bargain bin somewhere, as I did last week for four bucks. As a Clancy Brothers fan since I was 15, exactly 50 years ago, I've owned all these performances on record, cassette or CD and over the decades I must have heard these tunes literally hundreds of times. I am only one-eighth Irish, and I like alcoholic drinks probably only one-eighth as much as most Irishmen, but I love the songs and the Clancy arrangements of them. Four of the 16 tracks here are done by The Dubliners, another good group, but the Brothers and Tommy Makem pretty much invented "Irish Folk Music for Large American Audiences" in the late '50's, and my heart has belonged to them since their first appearance on the old Ed Sullivan Sunday Night variety show on television, in the theater that now hosts David Letterman's late night frolic. The only reason I withhold a fifth star is that a couple of the tracks don't reproduce perfectly in my car, because they start with a narrator who comes out of one channel at too low a volume. That may be the fault of my old auto audio system and not the manufacturer. However, a couple of these performances come from a Carnegie Hall Clancy concert and were not considered good enough to make the original LP, although they have been issued on a CD in recent years. Still, pay less than seven or eight bucks for this, get a used copy, and enjoy it. Too much alcohol can easily be a tragedy in real life, but in Irish lyrics, it is a fine thing altogether.
