"There aren't many groups in Canada that can match the legacy of The Irish Rovers. TV stars, huge concerts draws...major memorable hits. Plus, you have the longetivity...their popularity continues.

Sleeve Notes

Here's to the bards and the poets long may they write their ideals
And here's to the music makers who play the jigs and reels
For if there were no songs to sing that bring us all enjoyment
Then lads like us unfortunately would have to seek employment.

George Millar - Feb. 2000
