The 1916 Easter Rising CD & DVD

'The 1916 Easter Rising Beneath A Dublin Sky' is the title of a compilation Dolphin Records put out a few weeks ago (commemorating, late as the Irish always are, the 90th anniversary of the Easter Rising). The Double CD contains several previously released tracks by several members of The Dubliners, from Luke Kelly to Patsy Watchorn and is offering nothing new at all for the Dubs fan. The DVD contains a completely different program which does strangely include some recordings not related to the 1916 Easter Rising, like Fields Of Athenry or If You Ever Go To Dublin Town. Speaking of Patsy, his two songs were filmed especially for the DVD, one is Kevin Barry, the other The Dying Rebel, which Patsy never had recorded before.
