Leprechaun, Columbia/Legacy has a two-disc Clancy Brothers/Tommy Makem set called "Ain't It Grand, Boys: unissued gems." It has "Johnson's Motor Car," "Patriot Game," and a good number of other good songs that maybe didn't make it to LP's years ago because they were too political. The title song is really powerful. As I recall, the collection wasn't very expensive. You get about a hundred minutes of music for maybe twenty bucks. That ain't bad for Columbia, which seems to like to give you 70 minutes of reissued music on two CD's and charge you $25 or more.
