This is a great vocal performance from the late, great Luke Kelly. It’s utterly fearless. Although the Pogues recorded a brilliant version of this on Rum Sodomy and the Lash, one would be hard pressed to find a better sung version of Ewan MacColl’s classic song than this.

On an unrelated note, Dubliner Barney McKenna is a brilliant banjo player, but man oh man is that thing loud.
