All Star Game of Irish Vocals and Song Writer
Christy Mooore is my favorite musical artist which is why I looked here. I never knew who Jimy MacCarthy was, but I knew Ride On and Missing You were fantastic songs. They are can't miss musical enjoyment. I always liked Mary Black, but thought she was too operalike in her singing. These Jimy MacCarthy songs she does, No Frontiers, Adam and Katie are strong lyrics sung by an equally strong, clear and beautiful voice. I will be adding some more of Mary Black, Mary Coughlan, and maybe even a Maura O'Connell or two to my vast Irish vocal collection. This album is full of great songs and excellent singers who bring the songs to life. MacCarthy has way of putting us right where he wants with gripping lyrics. Give this album a listen, strong from top to bottom.
A brilliant Irish songwriter's greatest hits
Jimmy McCarthy's songs represented here are considered classics of modern traditional Irish music. these were huge hits in Ireland when they were released and they stand the test of time effortlessly. but the best part is that the creme de la creme of Irish vocal talent eagerly snapped up his songs. christy moore...mary black...mary coughlan. and maura o'connell who appeared on "o brother where art thou?". all here. this is celtic soul heaven. buy it.
