Synopsis

Album Description
Import two CD collection. Ireland's most loved band, The Dubliners, were formed in 1962 and made a name for themselves playing regularly in O'Donoghue's Pub in Dublin. Initially known as The Ronnie Drew Ballad Group. The change of name came about due to Drew's unhappiness with the name, coinciding with the fact that Kelly was reading Dubliners by James Joyce at the time. In 1987, the Dubliners celebrated their 25th anniversary. During this year they were introduced to The Pogues, and their collaboration resulted in a hit with "The Irish Rover". It reached #8 in the singles charts and appears on this 25 Years Collection. Christy Moore also features on the CD singing a tribute to Luke Kelly. 29 tracks. 2010.
