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: Ride On · The Fields of Athenry · The Crack Was Ninety · Sonny's Dream · Song for Ireland · The Isle of Innisfree · Nancy Spain · Three Drunken Maidens · The Ould Triangle · The Green Fields of France · When You Were Sweet Sixteen · The Rose of Allendale · My Lovely Rose of Clare · The Boys from the County Armagh · Danny Boy · Fiddlers Green · Patrick Was a Gentleman · The Rocky Road to Dublin · and many more.
