Product Description

After many years of playing records on the radio i think its fair to say that the best songs are "Story songs" that tell a story and have a meaning to them and of course they have to be catchy. You have to able to sing them after a few listens, well the man who has more catchy story songs than anyone else i know is one of ireland's greatest entertainers brendan shine.

Brendan started his musical career whilst still at school in the kieran kelly ceili band and was know mainly as an accordionist before he took up singing. Once he burst into song there was no stopping him. I remember when i first played "O'Brien has no place to go" the phones lit up with request. Listeners wanted to know "Who is the singer", can we get the record. They could indeed get the record and bought it in their thousands and it topped the charts , Brendan's first number 1. A place he was to call home as he had hit after hit, songs like "Where the 3 counties meet", "Some broken hearts never mend", "LAy down beside me", Then he came to the song that the whole nation loved "Do you want your old lobby washed down". It was to spend and incredible 37 weeks in the charts and would make brendan an international star.

That was 1979 and he has'nt looked back since, to this day he is one of the biggest draws on the country folk/pop scene, filling out venues all over the world. This double CD is indeed a celebration of 50 years of a sensational artiste with songs we all love. Sit back and enjoy!
