The Dubliners "Irish Favorites" 1996 CD

This is a 1996 American CD release which features twelve previously published tracks without any obvious remastering.  There is a mix of vocal and instrumental numbers.  Without doubt they were excellent performers in the Irish folk style.
The tracks on this album are Off to Dublin in the Green, Sunshine Hornpipe/The Mountain Road, Will You come to the Bower, Peggy Lettermore, Donegal Reel/The Longford Collector, Roddy McCorley, I'll Tell my Ma, The Mason's Apron, The Foggy Dew, The Old Orange Flute, Roison Dubh, and The Holy Ground.

Broonzy and Seeger 1956 concert issued on LP in 1965

This LP was produced in 1965 on the Verve Folkways label (not to be confused with the Folkways label which eventually forced Verve Records to drop the word "Folkways" from their name) using a recording of the 1956 concert.
I understand that only selected portions of the concert appear on the LP possibly due to poor recordings of other parts. The LP lists 11 tracks but there is a twelfth (spoken) track featuring Seeger suggesting that
everyone can have a five-minute Zup party. The tracks are Broonzy and Seeger both singing "Midnight Special"; Broonzy performing "Backwater Blues", This Train is Bound for Glory", "Crawdad Hole", "The Glory of Love", "Willie Mae", "Why Don't You come Home, Bill Bailey" and "Alberta"; and Seeger sings "Green Corn", "Mrs McGrath", and plays two instrumentals - "Hillel Instrumental" (tootin' cane), and the lengthy, but very entertaining, "Goofin' Off Suite". Graphics of the LP cover and the rear are included in the download.
