Re: 7th St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Festival

1996, Magnetic Music

Tracks 1-3 Skidoo
Tracks 4-7 Reckless Pedestrians
Tracks 8-10 Skirm & Dezi Donnelly
Tracks 11-13 Geraldine McGowan Band
Tracks 14-16 Tommy O’Sullivan & Cathal Hayden
Tracks 17-19 Anam

As part of a generically-titled series, this is a frustrating release. Most of what’s here is listed as “previously unreleased,” meaning it’s unavailable on the individual artists’ albums. This is a shame because the Cathal Hayden and Dezi Donnelly tracks are quite good and would be worth owning if available separately. The first two bands are really more folk-pop than traditional though, and much of the disc in general will be unappealing to tune players.
