Product Description

The requests for an album of this kind from this legendary group have been too numerous to count. Finally, a collection of 42 songs on two discs create a magnificent cross-section of a career that spanned over 40 years! You’ll hear Denis Ryan’s beautiful tenor voice and tin whistle, Fergus’ uproarious exclamations and banjo and the original tunes that made Dermot one of our province’s songwriting treasures. This is truly a collection for anyone who remembers sneaking their first sip at the Strand or for anyone wanting a taste of authentically, heart-on-sleeve traditional music. This collection has quickly become one of our best sellers and is the perfect addition to the libraries of those who were “there” and it is timeless enough to ensure that those who weren’t will get a chance to experience it for years to come.
