CD Reviews

A reunion well worth waiting for...
Francis King | Calgary, AB, Canada | 02/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After 16 years apart, the group that first brought Irish folk music to North America reunited in 1984 for a tour that reminded everybody why they were so great. All the energy of 20 years before was fact, it sounds like Liam, Pat and Tom Clancy, plus Tommy Makem, were performing like they'd never get a chance to sing again. The song selection is fabulous, Tom Clancy sounds *great* on Red-Haired Mary and Haul-Away Joe (if, as some reviewers have written, he was dying of cancer at this stage, he sure hid it well) and the musicianship is superb. Before there was a Chieftains, before there was a Wolfe Tones, even before there was a Dubliners...there was the Clancys and Makem. This may just be the single finest Irish folk album ever made."
Finest Live Recording in Folk History
Francis King | 06/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Perhaps the most important folk band in history, The Clancy's and Makem reformed after a break of sixteen years with a spectacular performance never equalled by any live band. By this stage - with almost 60 albums behind them - Tom Clancy was dying of cancer and plays a sad, quiet role in proceedings. But brothers Paddy and Liam are at their brilliant best, as is Makem. Never will you hear such vibrant, energetic talent. The death of Tom in 1990 and Paddy in 1998 brought to an end the reign of the greatest folk band in history. Listen to their rousing rendition of "The Holy Ground" and dare tell me I'm wrong. Guthrie may have been the inspiration, but without the Clancy Brothers there would have been no Dylan. Superb."
Reunion Concert renews Clancy's stunning aray of hits!
F. Lowell | 07/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Clancy Brother's last recording with all original members are great. From the rowdy singing of "Red Haired Mary" to Liam's classic version of "Carrickfergus" this is a great album for all to enjoy."
