Residing somewhere between the Clancy Brothers and the Chieftains, but more raucous in their sensibilities than either of those outfits, the Dubliners have been Irish music's most uninhibited emissaries to the world since the mid-'60s. This album lives up to its title, offering some lusty renditions of drinking songs, rebel songs, reels, and just about every other subgenre upon which this group has built its reputation across the decades.

UK five CD set from the guitar hero and former UFO and Scorpions member. After leaving UFO in 1978, legendary guitarist Michael Schenker decided to form his own group - settling on a name that left no confusion about the creative force in the group! Chrysalis Years 1980-1984 collects together all six of Schenker's albums recorded for Chrysalis Records including bonus live tracks and more. Features his eponymous 1980 debut featuring vocalist Gary Barden, 1981's MSG featuring Cozy Powell on drums and UFO's Paul Raymond on keyboards and guitar, and the legendary Japanese double live One Night at Budokan, recorded in Tokyo on MSG's 1981 tour. Released the same year, 1982's Assault Attack was the sole recording to feature former Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet, before Barden's return for 1983's Built to Destroy. This set is rounded off by MSG's second live album, Rock Will Never Die which effectively became the swan song for this era of the band.
