"This album is a terrific example of Liam's excellent ballad singing. It is an essential cd to own for anyone who enjoys Irish music, or just plain great folk music. The beautiful version of Ralph McTell's Streets of London should be enough for anyone to purchase this, but you also get every other classic song on this album. The only small problem I had with the cd was that the version of the title track, The Dutchman, lacks the heart and soul of Liam's live version, so find that too(hint:Makem&Clancy concert). But if you are reading this- buy this album."

"The Dutchman and the streets of london will haunt you forever they will always be playing in your heart and mind. You will never want to be without the CD again, BUT you can recall them in your mind as needed. Liam Clancy again warms your heart and feeds your soul If these were the only two songs on the tape I would pay dearly for it DO NOT MISS THIS CD GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!"
Excellent music, well done

"Siletzky is my real name, so the reader is allowed to observe that there is NO Irish connection. I bought the album for "The Dutchman" and I am satisfied, though I think the composer, Michael P. Smith, does the best job of all on this song on "Just Plain Folk." Just Plain Folk The other songs are done well. Perhaps the Irish can hear something in the voice that I cannot, but while I think Liam Clancy is a competent singer and arranger, I am not moved to put him at the top o' the heap. I enjoy the joyful exhuberance of the performances and the album always cheers me up."
