  • There's an eight-page booklet of liner notes in this anthology, but nowhere in the notes or on the case does it say precisely when these 18 tracks were recorded. That's never a good sign when you're deciding which one or two anthologies of an artist's work to start with. It does emerge in passing in the liners that these are "new recordings of their classic favorites" made after the Irish Rovers formed their own Rover Records label in the late 1980s. The original versions would be preferable to these, though it's still competent and well-recorded, if predictable and relatively slick, traditional Irish music, usually with a rousing bent. It's not strictly traditional, of course; there's a re-recording of Shel Silverstein's "The Unicorn" (which they took to the Top Ten in 1968), a cover of the Scaffold's arrangement of "Lily the Pink," and Tom Paxton's "Wasn't That a Party?" (which has a very slight pop/rock feel with the slide guitar and less avowedly Irish rhythm). ~ Richie Unterberger
