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: Arthur McBride · Biddy Mulligan · The Boys of Fairhill · Finnegan's Wake · The Galway Races · The Galway Shawl · The Homes of Donegal · Katie · The Leaving of Liverpool · Lough Sheelin Side · Love Is Teasing · The Merry Ploughboy · Whiskey in the Jar · The Water Is Wide · The Spanish Lady · Only Our Rivers · Nora · The Sash Me Father Wore · Sam Hall · The Patriot Game · Mystic Lipstick · Take Me Up to Monto · and many more.
