Yea, Mick, so you should: it's good stuff! Soodlum is a great book for the songs, poor for background. I think someone just sat down and wrote the notes off the top of their head, in about half an hour. (btw, Soodlum was a Dublin street character named Healy,from Francis Street).
Mary O'Hara also did a great version of "Bold Fenian Men Down by the Glenside".
