Traditional Irish folk music from the 1960s.
Joe Sixpack -- | Middle America | 05/22/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a nice 2-CD collection of early work by this Irish brother duet, who later formed the nucleus of the Fureys family band. This set draws from two albums originally on the Transatlantic label, their self-titled debut from 1968, and 1969's "The Lonesome Boatman," as well as some material from an album of solo piping music by Finbar Furey. The music is a bit stark, heavy on the uillean pipes, and a bit light on the vocals (though when Eddie Finbar sings, it's quite nice). An excellent example of the emerging Irish folk revival of the 1960s. Didn't entirely wow me, but it's definitely worth checking out."
