(1 out of 5 stars)

"Mix quality is random (vocal blend especially.) The best thing I can say about this collection is that disc 3 is considerably better than 1 and 2. The psuedo-live/pub feel of most songs just comes off as silly. Most songs seem to feature only accordian and drum (and singer), so unless you want to hear lots of accordian music, stay away from this one.

Songs not featuring the accordian are still woefully short of instruments, as if all the flute and guitar players were on holiday when this was being recorded. It's not a lack of musicianship as much as a total lack of musicians. This album's depth is exceeded by its CD's thickness. Replay value is somewhere below zero: don't even buy it used.

Additional note: this appears to be identical to Irish Favorites, Vol. 1, except for the addition of the third disc."
