Sleeve Notes

With a hearthy Irish welcome the famous (or infamous) Dubliners are here again at huge expense to entertain you.

From 'Whiskey in the Jar' to The Holy Ground' you, the listener will find a wealth of Irish folklore music and song. Brendan Behan is remembered in 'The Auld Triangle' from his world renowned 'Borstal Boy' sung supposedly from Mountjoy Jail where he was imprisoned for membership of the Irish Republican Army.

'The 'Rebellion' section on side one opens with 'The West's Awake' which sounded (we have always thought) as though the West's Asleep! However it sounds much more interesting to all concerned when presented by this group. The other two songs in this section hardly need comment.

'Hand me down my Bible' was a major hit on the international folk scene and is still sung in any decent singing pub in Ireland or the Hebridies. 'Se Fath Mo Bhuartha' was written by Colin [sic] O'Lochlainn and is one of his only songs to become a regular vehicle for discerning folk groups. A very thoughtful and feeling rendering here…

Having heard this I hope that you will make it your prime aim to hear Ireland's greatest folk group in concert whenever the opportunity arises. It is absolutely marvellous to find the group once again totally united (with Ronnie's return) and in our own tongue, 'Ar Ais Arish'!

Dara O'Lochlainn


Notes

image "Left to Right: Barney McKenna, Banjo; Luke Kelly, Banjo, Guitar and Fiddle; Kieran Burke, Guitar and Tin Whistle; John Skeahan, Fiddle and Guitar; Ronnie Drew, Guitar and Mandolin."

The above credits are directly off the album, and I have intentionally left the name mis-spellings. In addition, I had read that Luke Kelly played the fiddle, and he is pictured on the covers of both At Home with the Dubliners and Double Dubliners with a fiddle. However, this and Hometown are the only sources, that I am aware of, that credit Ronnie Drew playing the mandolin.
