As a live recording it works well, with subtle humour and minimal backing on guitar and bouzouki.
" Pete Fyfe, Folk Roots
A live souvenir and "greatest hits" package all at once, this is the one and only
Jimmy Crowley at his best.
" Sing Out!
Crowley is an artist whose integrity and taste have served him well and Uncorked captures
him on home turf delivering a robust and stirring set of top quality material.
" John O’ Regan, FRoots!
For all its Corkness, this album is being launched by Ronnie Drew at the Harcourt Hotel which is in Dublin!
" Sunday Business Post!
There is evidence of his warm stage presence on this Crowley’s first live album when many of the audience
join in on the choruses. Songs of emigration, love and struggle and there are a few humourus ones in there
as well such as Con Shine and Johnny Jump Up.
" Dirty Linen!
This is Crowley as he so uniquely is - an engaging balladeer with his own material in the precise voice
of an uncynical and concerned consciousness.
" Fintan Vallely, Sunday Tribune, Nov 98
Crowley is in great form as he mixes the sombre with the sunny.
