I enjoy this collection of Irish drinking songs. The recording quality is not necessarily too crisp.

I think it was probably recorded in a studio with some live and some added sound effects to sound like a pub. There are a lot of glasses clinking, occasional yells, and applause. Some of the tracks are pressed a little too closely together for my taste.The liner notes are quite incomplete. It is not clear who the artists are. It claims to have been recorded in Ireland and manufactured in Canada. It is an recorded and mixed on analog equipment (AAD).

Despite my complaints it is an enjoyable collection which reminds me of some times that I spend in music pubs in Ireland.

I like most of the cuts, but particularly:

Take Her Up to Monto

Wild Rover

A Nation Once Again (a classic song of the Irish Republican independence movement)

Waxies Dargle

Henry my Son

All for Mr. Grog

This is not dainty refined music, but rather a bit coarse and raspy at times.
