He's been called a bardic poet by "Hurdy Gurdy Man" Donovan and hailed as a singer with a voice so soul-piercing that it's "terrifying" by Ralph McTell, and now fans of Celtic singer/songwriter Luke Kelly can witness the Dubliners co-founder in his true element in this collection of nineteen complete performances. Songs featured include "Hand Me Down Me Bible", "Dirty Old Town", "Paddy on the Railway", and "The Wild Rover", with additional commentary by both Kelly's contemporaries and followers offering a fascinating perspective on the distinctive singer's place in modern music history.
