Great Irish albums not on that list:
Horslips The Táin
Mellow Candle Swaddling Songs
The Bothy Band Old Hag You Have Killed Me
The Virgin Prunes If I Die, I Die
Operating Theatre Rapid Eye Movements
The Jimmy Cake Dublin Gone, Everybody Dead (though you could put any of their albums there in its place)
Sea Dog Wizards of the Coast
David Kitt The Big Romance
Brian Conniffe/Suzanne Walsh/Diarmuid MacDiarmada self-titled
Drainland And So Our Troubles Began
Gemma Hayes Night on My Side
Decal Brightest Star

Does Nurse With Wound count given that he’s been living and working in Clare for about 30 years now?

8 on your list i've never heard.

edit: thats an observational comment. I'm more intrigued that there a load of records out there that are probably great that i've never heard a second of.

I have heard OF a lot of them in fairness.

Are you sniffing glue?

He could have done with help producing, didnt always nail the live tone on the records. The ones above sound the best imho.

The one time I played EP (with the cover band from my local) the lad who gave me a lift down played Chris De Burgh music the whole way down. In fairness the only other CD he had in the car was Stoat, so he is OK With Me

The thing about a lot these really uncool artists. If you can overlook the incredible naffness, they're actually very good at what they do.

He obviously has a bad experience with a ferry man. The anger in that song is terrifying.

Like I'd say on one hand

Charon, in Greek mythology, the son of Erebus and Nyx (Night), whose duty it was to ferry over the Rivers Styx and Acheron those souls of the deceased who had received the rites of burial. In payment he received the coin that was placed in the mouth of the corpse

But i'm still happy to think it was just about being annoyed about being on a ferry.

which reminds me -
it's a long standing dream of mine to hear a some headbanger band cover
Don't Pay The Ferryman by Chris De Burgh.
great tune but Chris' other songs are awful alright.

but unfortunately when metalers have covered No Limits by 2Unlimited or Rasputin by Boney M
it didn't come out nearly as well as it should have.

I went to see Sharon Corr at Oxegen (I think?) one year, the filth she had to put up with from some of the crowd. Poor woman.
was I with you at that? It was on the friday and there was nothing else on. I saw a lad I worked with and said 'state of you watching sharon corr', when it twigged I was watching her too. morto

I was a big CDB fan when I was 12. Won tickets on the hotline to see him in the RDS and the gig blew my 12-year-old mind.

Then he put his mickey in the babysitter and I lost all respect.

Isn't he an actual Earl or something? I know he has some regal heritage. Not sure to what country's royal family. Argentina maybe, if they have one.

Gemma Hayes album is on there, which frankly dates the people who chose the albums to a fairly specific age group.
