"Paul Brady's Collection is an exellent choice if you want to familiarise yourself with his musical career.Brady was once a Traditional,Folk Irish musician and was also once a member of the renowned Irish Folk Band Planxty.This collection gives you a good taste of an extrordinary career spanning the 70s 80s and 90s.For me personally Nothing But The Same Old Story is a classic among many.He has been recorded by Santana,Bonnie Riatt,and Dave Edmunds among others.Once known as Irelands best kept secret,that title has since diminished as he became known worldwide in recent times.Comparisons have been made with Van Morrison also,but I think Brady is more versatile with musical instruments and lyrics.Go out and buy this album as a starting point as each song has it's own story,and each song is a gem."
More than I expected...

"You know how it is - you buy an album based on what you've heard before - more often than not, you're disappointed. Fact is, I've been a BIG fan of Paul Brady and Andy Irvine doing Trad Irish... and, I couldn't help but notice Brady's work with Bonnie Raitt (of whom I am also a HUGE fan).So, I thought I was setting myself up for a fall when I ordered this album; but, I was more than surprised - yeah - delighted!!This album keeps me singing along, drumming and toe tapping... and reminds me a bit of a soft Sting, a taste of Boz Scaggs, and a male Bonnie Raitt (the fit is affiirmed).And then there are the Trad Irish re-recordings.... This album has brought me much pleasure and if this style of music resonates, I highly recommend it!"
Nice representative collection

"Irish singer-songwriter Paul Brady long ago abandoned the comfortable confines of traditionalism for the shakier terrain of electrified, synthy pop-folk. It's not a style I much care for, although it must be said that Brady is a much better and more engaging songwriter than most who tackle this style. Plus, with jewels like "The Island," this collection has more than a a few nice moments to recommended. It'll certainly give you a good idea of Brady's range, though I wish they had included more of the old stuff."
