One comment

A broad sweep - not so trad

I added this album mostly because it has the instrumental track "Cavan Potholes" - a terrific Donal Lunny reel performed by Sharon Shannon on the box.

Overall I think it’s a pleasant enough crooners’ album though I could have done without Bono, as I have an allergy…
