Ah, the Irish. The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners, and Brennan/Roche.

The Croppy Boy {Ronnie Drew, vocals}.
The Fields of Athenry: featuring Paddy Reilly.

And:

The Dubliners and The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and Shane MacGowan work their inimitable magic. Treasures abound. Don’t miss Brennan & Roche.

Special extra added bonus: a performance by the not-really-that-Irish Chad Mitchell Trio.

Ramones.

Kings of the 2-minute and under weight-division, the Ramones pack quite the copious wallop of mordant lyrics into their creations. And Joey Ramone leaves no doubt in these masterful performances as to his total command of the vocal art. Remarkably inventive, powerful, sublime.

Your ELO, and Maestro Jeff Lynne.

Steppin’ Out.
The Way Life’s Meant To Be.
From the End of the World.

The stunning talents of Jeff Lynne. Quite something. Few are his peers. The braintrust of Electric Light Orchestra, Lynne composed, arranged, and produced nearly all of the band’s material, while also contributing lead vocals and multi-instrumentalism. A musical polymath, and an immensely gifted artist.

The Elvis Costello.

Elvis Costello III

{Revised: 7/6/2019}

“Bowing, and squawking, Running after tidbits; Bopping and squinting, Just like a nitwit…”

Mr. Elvis Costello: One of the very greatest, most idiosyncratic performers and composers. Of this, or any, century/epoch. We will not see his likes again.

Swaggy. True Version.

The supremely talented, somewhat offbeat {esp. back in the day…} whistling mΓ¦stro, composer, and vocalist Roger Whittaker. Equipped with a voice not unlike burnished mahogany, the man can just plain deliver a song, his nonpareil winning ways being what they are. A true original. ∎.
