This reissue of the Clancy Brothers' 1959 album of Celtic tipplers' ditties is one of the first albums the group released after swapping their theatrical careers for musical success in the Greenwich Village folk revival of the late 1950s and early '60s. It contains somewhat more reflective versions of favorites like "A Jug of Punch" and "The Moonshiner" than the Brothers later performed, as well as rousing versions of the 18th century "Whiskey, You're the Devil" and the moonshiners' anthem, "The Real Old Mountain Dew."
