I merely listened to the sample songs and can tell you that none of them feature the Clancy Brothers, nor Tommy Makem! Maybe some of the other songs do, but the samples surely do not! Caveat Emptor! Let the buyer beware!

Here's a clue - If a Clancey Brothers album lists "The Croppy Boy" as "The Croppy Box", run away. I don't know where this started, but it persists on rip-off and rips of rips.
The first tracks are some horribly orchestrated cuts with some awful Dennis Day impersonator, and the Clancy tracks sound like they were copied from a mono system using a dictaphone. This is awful, it is hideous, no Irishman can tolerate it, even if he is drunk. DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK.

If you are looking for music from the Clancy Brothers--Then DO NOT BUY THIS CD!!! The sample songs are definately NOT them. If you ever wondered what a Clancy Brother song sung by someone from the Lawrence Welk show sounds like, this is it. Only much worse!!!!!

I have listened to the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem since I was fresh from the womb and I can say with 100% certainty that this CD is no more of them than it is the Vienna Boys Choir.
Sham ... plain and simple

I recognized Tommy Makem once, but that's about it. The background music is all 1950s style country-western show-band. I'd hoped this was a CD of the fabulous CBS Legacy recording of "The Irish Uprising: 1916-1922," produced for the 50th anniversary of the Rising. It isn't! Buy separate CDs of the real music!

I saw this album listed as "featuring" the Clancy Boys and Tommy Makem, took a look a the songs on the album and figured it has to be a good deal for under... . So I ordered it--and then read the reviews. "Damn, I've been ripped off!" was my first reaction, but it was too late to cancel. SO I got the CD and gave it to my son at Christmas as planned. He liked it. So I listened and said to myself, "Boy, this really is bad!" Who were these imposters? The album notes didn't offer any hints, but it certainly wasn't the Clancys. Sounded more like those Jurys Hotel Irish Revues they drag through Boston every March to play for the Irish American Q Tips.
But then after 9 or 10 cuts, the Clancys kicked in all was well. Apparently they took the schlock and added to the front end of an old Clancys/Makem album. For the money it was a fair deal, but I wish I could erase those rancid cuts at the start.
The album producer should be ashamed of himself for the blatant ....

Format: Vinyl
There is nothing in liner notes on the blue-covered OLYMPIC Records LP entitled IRISH REVOLUTIONARY SONGS (6104) that indicates who the performers are or even the year this record was released. Judging by the results, these singers and players are amateurs. Text does say that the dozen titles are "universally known and sung all over Ireland." Not a single one of these melodies is familiar to this listener, but that's not surprising. How likely would it be for a Dubliner to know such uniquely American folk pieces as "Clementine," "Swanee" or "Oh Susanna"?

Many of the stories told here are of brave men dying for the cause who leave behind grieving mothers, wives or sweethearts. "Kevin Barry" as an example tells of an 18-year-old who meets the hangman, but not before he's unsuccessfully tortured in an attempt to learn the names of comrade revolutionaries. "Tri-Colored Ribbon" is worn by a lass to memorialize a lover lost to the struggle.

The most unusual track here is an instrumental. "Roisin Dubh" may be played on a guitar's highest frets. The melody is rapidly strummed on single strings, as one would a mandolin or banjo. "A Nation Once Again" is a shrill recording of a martial song backed by snare drums, brass and bass. "Ireland's 32" is a patriotic anthem that names Erin's many counties. This and the last two tracks are by the same vocalist iaccompanied by a small organ, bass and single snare drum.
