CD Reviews

Amazon insists I haven't reviewed this, so I'll do it again.

"...So here is [my] review...of Liam's solo effort from the 60's: I have now downgraded it to three stars, from four, after many additional listenings. He has a great voice, but this effort has too many dirge-like offerings, and several songs are about twice as long as needed. Liam's duet releases with Tommy Makem are far superior, as are most of his releases with his brothers. So there! I love the Clancy Brothers, but prefer them in a bunch rather than one voice at a time."
What can I say. One of his best recordings
(5 out of 5 stars)

"His songs are so haunting and dramatic. Such a wonderful singer. If you are a fan of his you must have this. It is one of the greatest recordings ever"
Good, but he was even better with his brothers and Makem

"I bought this 1960's solo release by Liam just a month ago, out of love and loyalty. I have been a Clancy Brothers' fan since the very early l960's. This is a pleasant outing, but it lacks the high fun of the best of the Clancy Brothers' recordings. It also lacks the power of an album Liam did with Tommy Makem, called "The Makem and Clancy Collection" (Shanachie 52001.) Buy that one ahead of this one, if it is available. Liam is in good voice on his Vanguard solo offering, but the material he chose either does not have the impact it had in 1965, or just is not as compelling as the songs he performed with the group."
