CD is too short!!!

"Ten songs -- barely 30 minutes on a compact disc that can hold nearly 80 minutes?? What a rip-off. No matter how great the material is (and it's all great here), music buyers should avoid this at all costs. A decent anthology would have AT LEAST 20 songs."
Most are live and that's a good thing

"Some musicians should be hear live and some should not. The Clancy Brothers are one of those rare groups that just need to be heard live (the studio recordings are perfect too so don't get me wrong). There is such a personability with the Clancy Brothers to their audience. Lot of humor and nice intros to their songs. I agree that this album could have been longer than 30 minutes, but at least it is 30 minutes of very entertaining and popular Clancy Brothers music.It is very worth the small price you pay. Trust me!"
Not a good complation

"If you are new to the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem then I would suggest a complation like this to you. There are better ones out there, but this is an okay one to start with. If you are a true fan and are sick of all the complations, then DON'T get this one. Send a petition to Columbia Records demanding that they release the original LP's to CD!
Two years later, I'm deciding to edit this review. Not only did Columbia issue this pointless complation, but they screwed with the original sound mix. When comparing this Cd to the original LP's, there is added reverb (echo). Nothing irritates me more then when a remastering engineer thinks they can improve on the original recordings in some way, such as by adding stereo reverb to mono recordings or ruining them with noise reduction. Columbia/Legacy, shame on you!!!"
