I'm glad to see that They Never Came Home is on it...it is a shame the courts made him take it off his album when he first released it.

Are these all original recordings or have the tracks been re-recorded for the box-set?

If they are not original recordings, then I would not be really interested.

Could not find a reference in the files so hopefully I am not repeating anything here.

I bought the Christy Moore Box set whilst I was over in the UK and I can only say it is money well spent.

101 tracks some of which he has never released on record before. They cover his music from 1964-2004 and it is organised onto six discs each named by colour, red, green, pink etc. However the oranisation of the tracks onto each disc does not seem to follow a particular order of time, subject or event.

Some of the tracks are of poorer audio quality but as he says in the extenisive notes provided he was happy that someone illicitly recorded the particular song and captured the spirit of the night rather than the quality.

Whatever it is a wonderfull collection of songs and anecdotes and goes well with his autobiography 'One Voice'.

I also picked up the Planxty re-release "After the Break' and the 'Planxty Live 2004' both of which have some stunning playing.
I moved this message here from another thread on the same topic.

CD 6 has all four members of Planxty singing 'Down in the Valley', recorded for and left off the first Planxty album, years before 'O Brother'! yes, Liam O'Flynn can sing!
this box set is well worth having, available from Christy's web site at a reasonable price and FREE shipping and handling. He gets the proceeds directly too, so better than Amazon. Planxty Live 2004 also available this way, FREE shipping

Just ordered the Box Set. How can it not be worth it?
For those interested, I play Christy quite regularly
on a web radio show out of Canada at www.coopradio.org
heard every Thursday, 10 p.m. to midnight, Pacific time.

Yes some mystifying ommissions. You generally think of boxed sets being like the Simon an Garfunkel thing where they put everything in. Perhaps Christy takes it as read, that we've all got Ride On, Curragh of Kildare etc - that is if we're likely to buy this collection.

An outstanding collection, a lot of what is on the collection is one off stuff, warts and all, a real insight into a fabulous entertainer.
If anyone wants to hear other tracks buy the CD's because that is not really what this collection is all about and he does explain in the notes why he chose the tracks that he did, I for one am more than happy, the best collection I have ever bought.
I hope there are more treasures waiting to be put on CD, hail Christy.
Ken

If I'm not mistaken. Everything in 'The Box Set' is previously unreleased.

Christy uses to joke (?) about how he'll release a second Box Set on Paddy's day 2016 with other unreleased material left aside for this one... ;o)
