It's ok, more a fan of DeDanaan. I was looking for a song that my son would include in a school presentation of the great potato famine of the 1840's.

Definitive collection of folk music by the Irish Rovers!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I use to have the Greatest Hits cassette of these guys now I've just bought this CD. And it just keeps going on with their legendary folky irish music ballads like someone celebrating a traditional Saint Patrick's Day festival. Irish Rovers were based and originally formed in Canada. The remastered compilation album has their history and chronicling every detail career they been doing since the late mid sixties.it also features what songs are from previous rovers releated album singles of those decade periods 1967-1971 under the record label company Decca. Jimmy Ferguson one of the band musicians died of natural causes in his sleep on October 8, 1997 which I did not know that. So i guess it's decaded in his memory of these recordings back then. Also other original band members were George, Joe, Will Millar three brothers & Wilfil McDowell. My favorite song classics on here are "The Unicorn", "Years May Come, Years May Go", "Lily The Pink", "Whiskey on a Sunday (The Puppet Song)" and "Goodbye Mrs. Durkin". if you want something that will set the mood for some old fashion folk irish tunes. Let the Rovers have your feet, toes tapping or your whole body dancing through all day long trust me it's a pure entertainent masterpiece that is so rich to be good as it gets here!"
Remaster? So what?

"Yes, this is a remaster, but it contains all my favorite songs from the years when I first listened to the Irish Rovers. I loved the songs then, and I still love them. In fact I bought a copy to give to my mother, and she still loves them. Good songs are good songs, even if it is a remaster of earlier works."
