Original Irish Jazz from the year of the auld birth – and well worth a try next time the wine and cheeses are out! Such a shame they didn’t keep at it..

The Dublin Saunter by Noel Purcell

Encapsulates how Dublin was once upon a time :)

Johnsburg, Illinois by Tom Waits

Dylan writes:

Tom Wait’s shortest and most beautiful and unaffected song, to his wife the mighty talented Kathleen Brennan.

    Excellent choice! Well done, Dylan. Enjoy the vouchers.

    A few years back I was driving through there with my daughter. Had to stop off and take in the sights, then down to McHenry before cutting across to Chicago (where else? Aurora). She was a bit young and did not really get the song, but I hope that it helped in my trying to inculcate musical range. After all, she lives in the hometown of Les Paul, so music should be in her bones as well as her genetics.
