This Greatest Hits recording from the Clancy Brothers also features English folkie Louis Killen, who replaced Tommy Makem in the brothers' band. It runs through a stirring set of traditionals adapted and arranged by the Clancys and includes such live favorites as "Mountain Dew," "Jug of Punch," and "Whisky, You're the Devil," which features the memorable couplet "Whisky, you're my darlin', drunk or sober." The Clancy Brothers have always been known for their rousing vocals and they don't disappoint here, punctuating songs with whoops and hollers. The a cappella "Haul Away Joe" is a great example; you can just about feel the ocean spray and sail riggings. The presence of Killen switches up the set list a bit, with the Clancys tackling more Scottish fare than they might normally. There's also "Fathers Grave," which features the group in a harmonizing vocal configuration much different than its normal arrangement. These factors, in addition to the general entertainment of the affair, perhaps give Greatest Hits a little bit of wiggle room amidst the group's numerous retrospectives. ~ Johnny Loftus
Artist Overview
Irish ex-pats Tom, Paddy, and Liam Clancy are the quintessential folk musicians of Irish America. After relocating from Cork to New York City in the 1950s, the trio began perfecting their mix of traditional, drinking, and rebel songs, finding themselves at the forefront of the NYC folk revival. Their enormous repertoire, rousing performances, and Aran sweaters were lapped up by both folkies hungry for authenticity (Bob Dylan chief among them) and expats lonesome for the "Old Sod." The group became wildly popular nationwide, and soon brought their legendary show to Carnegie Hall. With a set of songs that tackled serious Irish social issues with both sensitivity and raucous humor, they became heroes to the vast Irish diaspora in the United States. Tommy Makem went solo in 1969, but the trio continued to make music until his and Paddy's death in the '90s.
