Reseña de álbum

1964's Spirit of the Nation, in retrospect, is one of the oddest albums by the Wolfe Tones. Only the Irish quartet's second release, the album is in the spirited mold of the college folk scene that was so prevalent in the early '60s. Songs like "Protestant Men" and "Paddle Your Own Canoe" have the cheery singalong trio of the Kingston Trio, and it's not until one pays attention to the lyrics of songs like "Padraic Pearse" (a ballad about one of the Irish Republican martyrs of the early 20th century) that one notices the sharp, biting political commentary so prevalent all over this album.

Formed by Derek Warfield and his brother Brian, who...
