The Dubliners "The Best of the Original Dubliners"
3 CD Box set 2003 (VBR 224-256)



















The "original" Dubliners - what a mixed lot they were and how they could sing and play! This 3 CD box set features 51 of the tracks released by them on various albums between 1967 and 1972. It's their usual conglomerate of English language traditional, Irish Rebellion, working songs, comedy and "borrowed" songs including, of all things, Ronnie Drew singing the 1950s Australian hillbilly classic "Pub with no Beer".
All graphics included for those who love to go into detail (Box graphics in with CD1).
