Reviewer: doodlerat from Chicago, IL USA
This is actually a reprint of a book first published in 1964 so you won't find any of the newer material here. However, what you will find is the lyrics and music (including guitar chords) to many classic Irish rebel songs and ballads. Perfect for anyone who enjoys this genre of music or grew up listening to the Clancys. I've discovered the correct words for several songs I "mis-heard" over the years. Includes Kevin Barry, The Irish Rover, Cruiscín Lán, Finnegan's Wake, The Old Orange Flute, Young Roddy Mcorley, The Wild Colonial Boy, The Rising of the Moon, Johnny McEldoo, and many more.

I have only a few complaints: Surely by now the Clancy Brother's and Tommy Makem could have put together a complete songbook with ALL of their material? Also, the book has a few minor typos, is fairly small, and the spine will have to be broken if you want it to lay flat on a music stand. But overall, I'm delighted to have found this volume and must now purchase a few more for various family members.
