“Hammy Hamilton, Séamus Creagh & Con Ó Drsceoil: It’s no Secret”
Yes, very enjoyable ear fillers, for me, including the songs… It’s a great choice of tunes and versions and songs. I particularly enjoyed hearing again things like the comedy play on ‘Mullingar’ and such sung geographical praises, and the session etiquette anthem “The Spoons Murder”, and the song reduction of Shakespear’s “King Lear”, great craic… But, I agree with a friend’s general comment about this one, too much singing for one CD, for most folk, myself not included. Every other track, if you include the instrumental air, is given over to song, 7 tracks worth out of 15. For some folks that’s too much, but I’ve just had a loan of this and given it a good solid listen and repeats, and I had both a good chuckle and do not count the time given it a waste. I’ll be back ~ for more… 8-)
Too bad the person who submitted this didn’t have any comment to leave…maybe in the future?
