EDITORS’ NOTES

The most whiskey-soaked sides from The Clancy Brothers’ ‘60s repertoire share space with tipsy Dubliners classics on this split release. These unvarnished live recordings document the easy rapport the bands had with their fans, while the studio tracks have a swagger and charm all their own. But behind the good-time aura, songs like “Tim Finnegan’s Wake” and “The Parting Glass” remind us of Ireland’s poetic gifts, describing the world in tidy turns of phrase that are often humorous, sometimes maudlin, and always irresistible.
