For over 20 years, Waltons classic ballad books have consistently outsold all others. When they first appeared in 1981, Dan Cohen of Dublin's Evening Herald newspaper wrote: There are so many fine points to these books that they almost bear indexing. Each volume in this beautifully produced four-volume series is packed with 50 old favorites and modern classics, including songs made famous throughout the world by Mary Black, Christy Moore, The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, Paddy Reilly and a host of others. Each book includes charming, hand-tinted period photographs, depicting scenes of Ireland's bygone days. Includes: The Rare Ould Times · Raglan Road · Spancil Hill · Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair · My Cavan Girl · A Bunch of Thyme · The Mountains of Mourne · Easy and Slow · The Irish Rover · Four Green Fields · The Banks of My Own Lovely Lee · Lanigan's Ball · The Rose of Tralee · Teddy O'Neill · I Know My Love · Carrigdhoun · Come Back Paddy Reilly · Easy and Slow · The Sally Gardens · The Rose of Mooncoin · Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore · The Last Rose of Summer · The West's Awake · Boolavogue · Alice Benbolt · and many more.
