Thread Name: Lyr Req: Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Arthur McBride
Good to read all these comments on such a wonderful song. For my money Paul Brady's version has to be a contender for the finest combination of singing and accompaniment ever recorded. I only wish I'd heard Paul back in the 70's - I can well understand Dan's comments about people running from all round -I discovered him in the mid 80's and have been fortunate to hear his version of Arthur McBride live a few times. Sad to miss his reunion concerts with the 'Liberty Belles' last year in Dublin - anyone know of Paul's further plans for such reunions?
