Sleeve Notes

I remember Danny Doyle's first appearance at Mick McCarthy's 'Embankment' when at what then seemed to be the height of the Ballad Revival, he brought a fresh new voice and (as it turned out) a winner — 'Step it out Mary' — to the Dublin scene. The troubadors of the Middle Ages roamed their war-torn world, singing of battles won and ladies lost. So it is with Danny. His soothing voice, his choice of songs illumine for us some heart-warming cameo of life — old Seth Davey with his puppets — which helps wipe away our own frustrations. We're happy just to sit back and listen so long as Danny keeps on singing.
