' I make no bones about it but I like this record enormously. Of the younger generation of city-bred singers, none would strike me as more faithfully fulfilling an age old role than Jimmy Crowley.
Yet the songs he sings often reflect the strange times we live in viewed through the unique prism of the balladmonger.'
” Ex-chippie Jimmy has been flogging the scene since the sixties opting for pro just before the release of The Boys of Fairhill, learning his trade the only way there is – the hard way, playing like Raftery for pennies, writing and collecting his ballads, always among the people.
