Summary

Summary

Again recording live, the Dubliners give the title In Concert to their second album since it represents an appearance in a concert hall, not (as is usual for the group) in a pub. The audience is typically enthusiastic, if less informal, and the players are giving a performance from a stage, not interacting with the crowd quite as much as usual. Nevertheless, this is a characteristic set full of story-songs about love and drink, with some spirited instrumentals ("The Sligo Maid/Colonel Rodney" featuring the fiddle, "Roisin Dubh" and "My Love Is in America" spotlighting the mandolin) and even the occasional political statement ("The Patriot Game," "The Kerry Recruit"). Even a long way from Dublin, the Dubliners seem to have found plenty of happy listeners content to be Irish, if only for an evening. ~ William Ruhlmann
