"Best of Irish Folk" compilation CD 1996
This CD was compiled in 1996 using digitally remastered tracks previously featured on various LPs of the folk revival period. It includes an impressive line-up of Irish artists performing mainly "Irish" folk songs (a few imports have crept in). There are 25 tracks in all and the artists include The Johnstons, The Ludlows, The Dubliners, Sweeney's Men, and Finbar and Eddie Furey. Tracks include Rocky Road to Dublin, Spanish Lady, Henry Joy, Enniskillen Dragoons, and Curragh of Kildare.
Overall, an excellent compilation especially for those who would like to sample the work of a range of Irish folk performers.
