About

The tremendous success of The Irish Rovers 1968 recording of "The Unicorn" transported the group from the folk circuit to the heady realm of pop stardom, but it is the traditional material they perform so inimitably well that serves as the foundation of their enduring success. In addition to interpreting the cream of yesteryear, the Rovers have also enriched the canon with original compositions that effortlessly replicate the feel and sound of considerably more venerable ballads. By definition, this collection of Irish favorites is also a celebration of The Irish Rovers at their very best.
