Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I felt like I should do something Irish related. Even though I don't feel very rollicking what with the earthquakes, tsunami's and meltdowns going on. Here on the island they have been predicting that we are way overdue for the "big" quake and after New Zealand and Japan we are doing what we can in the way of preparedness. So I think we should all stop for a second tomorrow, take a collective deep breath and have a pint or two before all these crises drive us nuts. In the meantime I wondered what I should put up for St patty's and I decided I would post up different versions of the classic Whiskey in the Jar. Not going to go into much detail since I'm pretty drained this week. I think all of these are great but my fave version is by The King which has surfaced here before at various times but it's a corker especially since it's sung by an Irish postal worker turned Elvis impersonator by the name of James Brown.

MP3s that will appear on this blog will be available for only a week or so(usually far less) and are here for sampling purposes only. It is not my intention to violate copyrights. My only goal is to share my love/hate relationship with music and to expose people to music they may be unfamiliar with. If you are the creator or copyright owner of a song or anything else that might be posted here, please CONTACT ME by sending an e-mail to homercat at shaw dot ca if you wish to have it removed. I don't know why someone would want me to quit promoting their music for free and therefore putting money in their pockets by getting people to buy their stuff, but I will quit if you e mail me.
Most importantly, if you like an artist you hear here , you should definitely do your best to take the knowledge you gain here and go out and BUY THEIR ALBUMS to help support the artist.
