Whisky in the jarrrr. I got this from the same friends of my parents as the Camel record I wrote about before. I don’t remember if I heard the Dubliners before I got the record. I do remember that years later I went to see them live, which I think was my first concert. I was there with a friend that really didn’t like this overwhelming party atmosphere, so no… he didn’t want to stand up and dance like the rest of the venue. It was a nice concert though, and I’m glad I saw these old guys, even though I was only dancing on the inside.
Back then they were already old, and now that crew has been replaced. I think this records came out when they were around 10 years. They had a famous concerttour for their 40th year, and now they already passed 60? I must say, on this record you can almost hear the whisky dripping over the wild beards.
Something that I also see now, on the corner of the inner sleeve, is the original number I wrote down for this record. It is number 67. That means I already had that many records?!? It also means that I removed many of these early possessions already. I’m not going to talk about those anymore (Doc Douma?).
