"This is one of my favorite Irish music albums. My grandparents were from Ireland, and this is the artist whose vinyl albums they played the most. This recording was made live at the John Barleycorn pub in New York (circa 1970?) as the album was originally released on vinyl LP. What a pleasure it is to listen to 30 years later without all the pops and clicks recorded off the old LP--yet it still conveys the warmth and charm of the pub atmosphere. Paddy Noonan's accordian work is superb, accompanied by singers with genuine gaelic accents and an upright piano. "Irish Party" is also available as part of the 2-CD set by Paddy Noonan named Irish Celebration. The second CD of that set, Irish Dew is half newer material and half older recordings that also used to be on LP and were made about the same time as "Irish Party"-again at the John Barleycorn. For a few bucks more, "Irish Celebration" is the way to go.
I originally bought this CD under the Peter Pan label. Then I purchased the 2-CD box set "Irish Celebration" and got the same exact CD labeled "COMPOSE Manufactured & Distributed by PPI.""
