It's about time he did record it. Now that would be worth a listen. I put this song into the same catagory as 'Wild Rover' and 'Streets of London'.

I sat with a whole load of Southern Irish people the other night around a bonfire and heard someone sing 'The fields of Athenry'. I have always put this song into that catagory, when sung in a session by an English person. When I heard an Irish man sing it I nearly cried. It was beautiful.
