Album Review

When you wanted to hear traditional, straight-ahead, all-acoustic Irish/Celtic music (as opposed to contemporary Irish/Celtic pop and rock), one of the obvious places to turn was Patrick Street. The quartet wasn't out to compete with the Pogues or Luka Bloom — in the '80s and '90s, Street was the type of group that appealed to Celtic purists.

Listeners who have savored Street's studio recordings owe it to themselves to find this CD and hear how great the band sounds on stage.
