CD Reviews

The Best of Black 47
Eric W. Hulbert | White Plains, NY United States | 09/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Black 47's best CD. Black 47 is one of the best live bands around, always giving 110%, and this album helps you appreciate their original sound and their hard work. This is also their last album with Chris still in the band, and his voice and hip-hop influences are currently missed. Every person for whom I have played this album is now a Black 47 fan as well, joining the loyal family of followers."
BRONX, NY 10458
Gerard M. Sweeney | San Francisco, CA USA | 08/04/2000

"Black 47 moved on to Decatur Avenue in the Bronx roughly 8 years ago. I know because I lived on Decatur Avenue for 18 years and I've seen them play live in all the bars on Bainbridge Avenue (none of which are around) they mention in there song Rockin' The Bronx. The Village Pub, The Phoenix are no longer around but I'm sure you can catch the at Paddy Rielly's in Manhattan. If you don't get a chance to see them live BUY THIS CD! They are an amazing band from an amazing time in the Bronx!"
Good Drunken Fun!
Eve Nevarre | Portland, OR United States | 04/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"They cover Dylan, Bob Marley, and the Clash but they do it with the classic Irish flair as only Black 47 can. Kirwan's voice has never sounded worse but that is what makes the album so brilliant. It is almost endearing. This live version of "Funky Ceili" may be the best ever. "Green Suede Shoes" sounds great live as well. The vocals in "40 Shades of Blue" are excruciating but somehow suit the song perfectly. This album is good drunken fun."
