Sleeve Notes (Excerpts)

Irish song and lore were eloquently represented at Newport by TOMMY MAKEM. Steeped in the musical and poetical tradition of the Gael, he is an artist as indigenous to his world as Big Bill Broonzy was to his. He is an actor as well as a singer; the two crafts are juicily fused in the songs. No "prettiness", no pretense in his performance, he reveals himself; and in a larger sense, his verdant heritage. PATRICK CLANCY about whom all this is equally true, is heard here in "Mountain Dew."

Sleeve Notes (Excerpts)

It was Tommy Makem, of County Armaghm [sic], Ireland, strutting back and forth on the stage and piping away. And then the 27-year-old singer who regularly performs with the Clancy Brothers, put down the bagpipes and started to sing with his own very able set of vocal pipes. You can heat Makem, supported by Pete Seeger and Eric Weisberg, in two richly different moods: the sardonic, defiant, declaratory singer reviling the effects of war in "Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye," and the lyric, playful minstrel in "The Whistling Gypsy."
