The one thing you can always say about the Dropkick Murphy's is how they are a big supporter of their hometown sport teams and this CD features "The Official Anthem of the Boston Red Sox."
If you are not a Red Sox fan, do not get the CD. You will be disappointed. Otherwise, to all you Red Sox fans out there, buy the CD and help Reverse the Curse!
This EP is an incredible introduction to the band; VERY reasonably priced (with proceeds going to charity, so everyone wins), two separate but equally brilliant versions of "Tessie" one more-or-less acoustically performed behind a HUGE ballpark organ), the aforementioned "Fields Of Athenry", as well as a scorching instrumental (either "Nutty" or "Nut Rocker", it's listed both way s in the CD liners), and an acoustic original "The Burden". It's truly a can't-lose proposition for the curious music fan, baseball historian ("Tessie" is basically a recounting of Boston's ragtime fan contingent "The Royal Rooters" raising hell after the box office sold their seats out from under them before a big game), and/or Celtophile.
I'll be buying anything from these guys I can find after hearing this EP with no reservation...this is great stuff, and further proof that 2004 will forever be remembered as The Year Of The Red Sox...Black-&-Tans for everyone!!!
Although having "Nutty" on this CD is a nice bonus for any Bruins fan, 1/2 star off because the the version on "Live on St. Patrick's Day" is better.
Another 1/2 star off, not because the bonus video is bad, but becasue it could have been much better.
"... when the game was on the line, Tessie always carried them away...."
Any baseball or Boston history fan will love this. Did we mention the free video included?
Oh, yes--storm-troopers of the Evil Empire, save your money! You'll need it to buy handkerchiefs to cry into!
Couldntve said it better myself. This is the official song for the Red Sox now, and I suppose it worked. But, even without the Red Sox references, this is still a good song. DKM have an interesting Irish/Rock/Punk sound that suprisingly works very well with the lyrics of the song.

Tessie by the Dropkick Murphys was a gift; even though the person who received it isn't a Red Sox Fan, she was pleasantly surprised by it nonethelessPublished on December 31, 2013 by Mary Regina Twomey
