"This CD will put you into a great mood. Each song is performed in great harmony. It is a pleasure to listen to, over and over again, especially since there is a ton of music on it. You should especially like the Lock Lomond March, which combines several different approaches and ensembles to the song. A must have for all those that are not tone deaf."
Collected from earlier vinyl albums.

"To my knowledge this was never one of the old Mitch Miller albums on vinyl, but instead is a recent collection taken from his various earlier albums. "Sweet Adeline" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" are from "More Sing-Along With Mitch," "When You Were Sweet Sixteen" is from "Still More! Sing-Along," and so on. Despite being a collection from various albums, the sound and volume levels are pretty consistent from song to song, so the CD sounds unified. There are two marches here that are energetic and pretty good: "Kerry Dancer March" and "Loch Lomond." The 6/8 time medley with "The Sidewalks Of New York" is nice, and "Jeannie With The Light Brown Hair" is a classic everyone should know/learn. Overall, for an Irish song album, I expected faster songs but many of these were slow lullabys and drinking songs. I'm a little surprised that "Has Anybody Here Seen Kelly?" from Mitch's "TV" album wasn't included, too, since it's definitely Irish-oriented ("...and he's Irish through and through, has anybody here seen Kelly, Kelly from the Emerald Isle...") and it's in the same genre as "Harrigan," which was included. Overall it's a decent album, though a little slow for my taste, and the concept was good, but personally I would prefer to just buy all the individual albums from which these songs came--if they ever become available on CD, that is."
