As a performer and recording artist Christy Moore has delighted Irish and international audiences alike. Now this unique collection presents the words and music of more than one hundred of the songs he has performed. From Paddy on the Road (1969) and Prosperous (1971), throught the Planxty and Moving Hearts albums and back to his solo career with The Time Has Come (1983) and Rode On (1984), Christy Moore's music has always been innovative, influential and entertaining.
